that bad blogger feeling


I'll just come right out and admit it. I am a bit discontent. With my header that is. A post ago, I thought I had found the one and proudly announced it. Now I'm feeling like such a traitor going back on what I said and changing it. I have that awful gut feeling of guilt. Ugh. In the big scheme of life, its just a header. I should be able to stick with one for more than a week. For some reason, that seems to be impossible for me. I would go as far to say that this one feels right, but you know how that goes... sigh. Honestly, I have that "I'm a bad blogger" feeling. I lost two followers today, much to my dismay. Sure, it probably happens once in every blogger's life, but still its sort of dissapointing. It makes me wonder if what I write isn't interesting enough, or just the whole header deal I have going.
And then, I just thought of something. You guys are still here, all 148 of you. You put up with me and my undecidedness and my talking myself through it. Thank you lovelies! And Carlotta redesigned my blog columns to my heart's content. Another thing to life my spirits. 

Do you ever have blogging blues?

  1. Well, I am pretty new to this whole blogging thing so I haven't had the blues yet. I don't even have 10 followers yet, but I imagine it would be sad if some of them decided to stop following. :0( Sorry! I really enjoy your blog, your writing is refreshing and your photography is bright and cheerful. I really like it. Keep it up! You'll get 2 more followers before you know it!

  2. The same thing happened to me last week, I lost a follower. I was bummed out about my blog for a week until I gained one back. Sounds awful doesn't it.
    But don't let that happen to you. I love your blog. I found it quite some time ago now, but I still love it for the same reason I started following in the first place, I love your pictures.
    I love you header, as I did with your last one, but does it really matter if you go and change it again in a week? No, because I feel that to create a head you need to express your creativity, and if you have more creativity than others then I don't see it as a problem.
    I love you blog, so keep doing what you are doing. Write and post what you want to post about as if no-one is reading. Do it for you, and no-one else, and we will just tag along for the ride.

  3. oh gosh. I get the blogging blues more times than I care to admit. ha. usually when I'm feeling a bit down, I remind myself that it's just blogging. and then go and redesign my blog ;) but isn't that lost follower feeling the worst? I'm not sure why anyone would unfollow're just the best. seriously.

  4. Well, for what it's worth... I LOVE your new header. Variety is good! :)

  5. I really have the blogger blues. I have no clue what to do with my design, and it stinks :(

  6. I totally hear ya on losing followers... I have lost 5 in the past two weeks. It sucks.

    Your header is beautiful by the way! Really, you don't need to change it :).

  7. Totally got ya there. But playing with headers is fun! Play around with them until it feels right-or I don't even mind if you keep switching them, there all pretty! (I must say though, I love this new one!)

  8. I think your header is awesome! But if you decide to change it, that's cool. I plan to get a header like yours one day :))
    I know the bad blogger feeling, and that sinking feeling when you lose a follower. It's happened to me, but then I don't know what happens...something makes me feel better. I think it's the fact that I still have so many people who care about what I do, and that little spark inside you that says to keep on going. Wow, I sound like a motivational speaker. But it's true :)) Great post.

  9. Yes, I get the blogging blues. Sometimes you just can't find something you like. I changed my header almost every week a couple months ago! I love this new one!

  10. Oh I like this one better anyway... the other was fantastic but this is WOAH!
    So I have 9 followers... I did have 10. I am pretty boring. You, my dear, are a fantastic blogger :)

  11. Oh I gosh I totally know what you mean. Honestly I've probably lost about 30 followers and at first it really makes you feel bad but that definitely fades. Believe me, it's completely normal.

  12. I lost a follower once, which seemed even worse cuz at the time I only had twenty some followers. Blegh. But then I found out she had a very good reason, so it was OK. :)
    Btw, your blog is one of my favorites that I follow! Whenever your blog pops up in my dashboard I'm always excited. :)

  13. oh man, those blues pop up on me way too often. than i go watch some top chef and i'm all good again;) love your header, it's lovely!

  14. alright your header is beyond beautiful.

    and honestly? that doesn't surprise me at all.

    every time i visit your blog, i see some of the most gorgeous pictures i've ever seen. the way you capture these little kids that i see pictures of all the time and nature! oh my... i seriously can't get enough. i don't comment often because i feel like i'd just be saying the same thing over and over again and it would seem insincere or lose meaning but i seriously do love each and every one of your photos. truly talented, girl.

    forget those un-followers. you still have us :) so many people that are in love with your blog!
