I am on the computer, he is in the garage,
I am typing, he is tinkering.
I am escaping, he is escaping.
He calls me a Blogging B$$ch …………( he is joking of course), I stop listening when he mentions yet another “must have”.
Relatively new to Blogsville I am enjoying the escapism, the creativity, the brilliant bloggers and all the wonderful things they have to say. Questioning anything and everything in this crazy thing called “Life”.
What I want to know is, how do you balance it all?
Children, everyday life, jobs, family, relationships, while also having time for that life essential… blogging.
Do you spend the evenings caught up in you’re own little world. Each of you winding down from you’re busy day separately, rather then conversing, communicating, enjoying each others company?
During my 31 Day series there were a few nights when he was so sick of seeing my back huddled over the keyboard, our relationship was most certainly put on hold. However thankfully he indulged my determination and allowed me to continue on my journey of self discovery. I understood his frustration, however I was on a mission that I was incredibly determined to complete.
Complete the mission I did and with it I gained a wonderful sense of achievement.
It has led me to want to create a regular place for blogging in my life. I am finding it a great escape. Something for me. I am also realising how much wisdom other people have and how much of it they are willing to share. Therefore there must also be time to read the insight and thoughts of others.
I have seen many posts of late discussing our love for technology, how sometimes we are just too connected to this virtual world. It is so easy to get caught up in it all.
Does the novelty of blogging wear off?
I would imagine like most things in life it goes through ebbs and flows?
Do you have a hobby that allows you to escape, but at times perhaps this hobby is nurtured more than your real life relationships?
Conversely, perhaps a hobby is something that is essential for ourselves, to make us happy and feel complete, in turn making them happy.
