what's up this week

I have been waiting for this week for what seems like forever. I'm officially half way done with the semester. I get to see Handsome at the end of the week. Hallelujah. This time we spent apart (about two months) definitely went by faster than it ever has, but holy shit I miss him like crazy. Especially being around my roommate and her boyfriend. Seeing them and how happy they are makes me wish he was here even more. This semester is seriously flying by though. Usually I have a pretty rough time going two months without Dj. This time, I've been so busy I feel like winter break was just yesterday, which is amazing because its so much easier that way.

I'm a little bummed though, because I only get to be with him for about five days. Usually, we go a couple months without seeing each other and then spend at least a whole month together, so this is going to be the shortest time we get to spend being together. With the way his job is, there are only a few days that are over my spring break that he'll actually be home. I know that the time we do get to spend together is going to be amazing- it always is, but I'm already dreading this goodbye. I'm going to soak up all of the time I do have with him though, so the end of this week/beginning of next week I might be a little absent from Blogland. I will still have some scheduled posts, but I likely won't be returning emails or promoting or any of that stuff while I'm with him.

I'm a little worried about that though. Of course I'm going to choose time with my boyfriend over my blog, but I get nervous when I can't tend to the blog. Lately I feel like my readership has gone down. I'm not sure if its me, my content, or what, but I've felt a little disconnected from the rest of blogland. I know that it must partly be my fault, because my heart hasn't been into it as much lately. I know that it reflects in my blog. But I also don't know if thats the only reason. My blog grew so quickly in such a short time, but I feel like its not growing anymore and my readership might even be declining. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it just me? Am I doing something wrong? Something differently? I would love to hear from you on this. I write for me, but I also write for you. As much as this blog began as an online diary, it has become much more than that to me, and if I'm not producing content that my readers enjoy, what's the point?

Maybe I'm just being down on myself. Maybe I need a break. I'm not sure what it is, but I'm hoping that taking a couple days off and being with Handsome will get me back into the swing of things and I will be ready to go when I get back home next week!

  1. I am with you, it seems the past week or so readership has been down and I have been wondering the same thing!

  2. I cannot believe it's been two months! I was complaining about not seeing My Guy for a month, you guys are strong! I'm flying down to Tampa on Friday to see My Guy too this weekend. I will definitely have to come back to read all about your time together with your Handsome. What a coincidence that we both will be seeing them this weekend. As far as the readership, just keep writing like you have been. Remember that you started this blog for yourself and whoever wants to read will continue to stay and read. Make sure to focus on yourself and what you want to write about, everything else will just fall into place. If you force your posts, your readers will be able to tell that you are forcing it. Maybe taking time away from your blog to spend with Handsome will be a nice little break from your blog and your time to focus on him and your relationship.

  3. YAY for seeing your man! It's always the light at the end of the tunnel, isn't it? Focus on the present - you and him. We'll all be here when you get back, and this blog is YOUR space...regardless of numbers :)

  4. Hooray for getting to see your man! As for the blogging, I kind of feel like winter has caused everyone to slack on not only blog content, but reading and actively participating too. But your loyal readers will always be there for you. Just keep doing what you do & writing from your heart.

  5. So happy for you to get to see your mad this weekend! I bet it will lift your spirits so much everything in your life will pick up! I don't know about other people - but you have a new reader in me!!! :)

  6. I can definitely relate to feeling the disconnection. I have been feeling it all month and can't seem to shake it off. Hopefully it goes away for both of us soon!
