One of these days, I am going to learn that I am enough.
From what I hear, what a lot of you like about coming to this blog is that it’s never the same thing over and over. You like that I am willing to share my honest truths. You like that it’s a healthy dose of things about the kids, things about Pittsburgh, things about healthy living. No, I might not have one specific niche. Yes, I juggle a lot things – work, health, running, blogging, social media, family — and I think that’s one of the things you love about not just this ‘lil blog but me.
When I look up there at the title of this site, ‘lil Burghers, I sometimes wonder if I am being true to my blogging why. Am I giving this blogging thing enough?
And every single time, the answer is yes.
I might not be bringing you the exact niche you want on a daily basis, but I am bringing you me. In turn, bringing you me means that I am chronicling a history of who the mom behind ‘lil Burghers is. Something that my kids will be able to read and learn about me. About them. About their first years. About how I juggled it all and gave them a pretty darn good life (with the help of their super dad!).
Not once, not twice, but three times in this past week, I was told that my blog wasn’t enough of something. It didn’t fit the mold (reminiscent of the story about Shape Magazine, just a ‘lil). Let me be real. It stings. It hurts to know one of your “babies” is not enough to get a simple assignment, thrown a ticket to an attraction to share with readers and Pinners, or be part of something bigger.
But remember, I am going to Roar Louder. I am going to continue to be proud of this blog. Flaws, bumps, lack of niche, and all.
Because it’s mine.
And it’s enough.
