Where some bloggers attract hundreds or a thousand or more followers, I am lucky to have 30ish (not that I'm complaining, it's lovely to have my fellow readers/likers and followers joining me at Off to the Park).

I have been blogging for approximately 2 1/2 years, and only setup my blog's FB page a year ago.
When I put so much of myself (and my heart) into a post and don't get any feedback or a comment on post (except for those pesky spammers who comment with embedded links to epoxy coatings!), it makes me wonder if it's worth all the effort. Apart from a couple of lovely bloggers who always seem to find the time to comment on my posts (thanks to those of you!!), I don't get many comments or feedback on here.
But then again I don't put a lot of energy into promoting my blog, or get involved with a lot of link ups, generally because I don't have a lot of time to invest in blogging.
The blog was originally, and still is for me.
It's been a great creative outlet for me, and somewhere where I can brain dump my thoughts, ideas as well as a place to share stories about my two girls.
I'm not a full-time blogger, so you won't find me publishing a post everyday. Sometimes I'm lucky to get one, (possibly two), posts published a week.
One of my New Year's resolutions for this year was to spend less time on the computer (incl. blogging) and more time with the kids, but there are days when I find I just need a little time to myself and need to escape my two girls for a little while, so I find myself booting up the computer.
I guess I need to have a rethink about whether blogging is the right thing for me to do be doing with my time, especially when I don't have much time to indulge in other passions like my art, which I rarely get time for.
