Untitled: For a Reason

As some of you may know, I am almost done with this semester. Woohoo! I only have two more finals left, on Monday and Tuesday. One of them is actually a speech, so I only need to study for the other. And if you know me well enough, I probably won't start until Saturday ;)

So with all this extra time, what have I been doing?

I'm trying to make time pass. I've played games, I've napped, I've watched tons of episodes of Family Guy, American Dad!, and The Simpsons on Hulu.com. Not productive at all, I know. But other than that, I've been thinking about my blog. My blog doesn't exactly fit into a category. It's a mixture of reviews and things I want, but mostly I just talk about myself. Like what I'm doing right now.

I would love to have a beauty blog like my friend Lainey's, but I don't have that many beauty products. Fashion? I am not fashionable in any way. I could be, but I don't have the money to. Because I don't exactly have a motive for my blog, I lack encouragement sometimes. There were a few times when I think about deleting my blog altogether. I just feel like I don't have anything to say anymore. To some people, a blog is like a diary. A diary can be a great idea, but in my opinion, it's much too personal. I don't want to gossip about my classmates or rant about my parents to the world. Besides, I don't even think anyone would like to read about that.

Don't you ever feel discouraged sometimes?

Maintaining a blog is a huge commitment and requires extensive dedication, and often, I just feel I don't have enough of either. I have the time and mindset for a blog, but I lack a motive and drive. I think having a themed-blog is so much easier.

I wish I had strawberries & whipped cream! Source

  1. Aww, don't get discouraged Emmy! Your blog is one of the best I read :) It doesn't have to fit into a category- Just as long as it's fun to read (gosh knows I post too many pictures of my cat)!

    Don't you dare stop blogging! :D

  3. I've been feeling the same lately; There's no way I'll be able to reach my blog goals by the end of 2012.

    You should blog because IT does something for YOU. I blog because I'm going througn a really hard time in life, and blogging takes me to a different place for a little while.

    Just find a reason to blog, and everthing will fall into place after that. Blogging should be sonething you enjoy, not feel like a slave to.

  4. It's hard to get followers :( It's a lot easier to get pageviews. But not reaching your goal by the end of 2012 doesn't mean it won't happen. Maybe give it another month or two :)

    I don't exactly have a reason to blog, other than to do something with my extra time and make some new friends. I lost all 3 of my best friends in high school. It's only been 2 years since I've graduated and I'm waiting for someone better. In the meantime, I'm trying to make new friends because I was always with those 3 girls all the time and now that I don't have them anymore, I need to find someone else :)

    My favorite thing that happened after I started blogging was probably the fact that I got to meet you! You were my first follower and you STILL read and comment on my posts. You're the friend on the other side of the country :P I'm really glad I met you, or else my blog would have been deleted much sooner! Thank you for hope and fun times :)

  6. don't feel discouraged! I love your blog! Also, followers are hard to get because a lot of people don't have blogspot accounts that read blogs :)
