I watch other bloggers and most of the time I am very inspired by how awesome they are.  But then I read some blogs and think “WTF?”  Do people really believe or “buy” the crap they’re selling (not things, but the stuff they put out there).  A lot of the time before publishing something (especially a space in my house), I get nervous.  I’m nervous because I wonder how many of you will  like it.  Is it worth posting?  Am I really as talented as I think I am? Those are just some of the questions that run through my mind. 

I know some bloggers that work their butts off on what they do and create and don’t receive nearly enough recognition as they should (in my opinion) and then there are others who gets attention merely because of a name and BAM, they blow up.   This may come across as me being bitter or “jealous” of someone else, but let me just say that I’m not.  I just wanted to get this off my mind.  I came across this quote on the oh so lovely blog “Little Miss Momma” and it instantly made me feel better.  

Tips for writing a blog - overcoming writers block


I may not be as noticed as others, but I am here.  I am real.  And I can honestly say that I will never act as if I am more than I really am just because of an image I want.  Although I do believe that people know when you are fake, some counterfeits still slip through the cracks.  You will never have to worry about that with meSmile

I hear you! Just keeping Doing you! I just keep writing away, one of my worries is - I don't I'm not boring anyone, because I can ramble on and on in my blog posts some days!

I know what you mean! Blogging can make you feel like you are in high school all over again.

I wonder the exact same thing at times, but then I ask myself why? It's really too much work to be something that you don't feel in your heart and soul. And it will show in due time if it's. Keep being you! There is no one else like you.

I just started my blog a few months ago and I stress about my posts, I haven't even told people I have a blog yet! I think real isn't always the most popular but I'd rather be real and honest any day. Keep on doing what your doing! ~Shelby

Great quote! And post.


I hear ya! Every post I throw out there I doubt. But all I can do is be myself cause that is all I have :)

Latoya @ The Scott's Crib said...

Well said:) I think that is one of the main reasons why I am scared to have a huge number on my GFC. I actually removed it. I don't want to appear larger than life because I am not. I am just a mama trying to relax and escape sometimes through my blogging adventures. My house just happens to get made over in the process:)

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

I get nervous about it too and I'm full of self-doubt. I try to remember that not everybody likes the same things, and you just have to be true to your own style and the heck with everyone else! BTW, I love your style so don't go changin!

Carmel @ Our Fifth House said...

I'm nervous every time I hit that little publish button, but then I think who cares if people don't like my style - I'm the one paying the mortgage over here. ;) So I ought to just decorate how I want to. I totally get where you're coming from. My goal is to always be who I really am -whether online or in real life. You are fabulous, and I always enjoy each and every post!

Well said! Blogging for me is about intention its not about who blogged first and the most, you hit the nail on the head, just keep on keeping it real :) Love your blog!!!

I relate to this so much I pinned it. :)

Not in relation to my blog so much - I'm not a consistent blogger. But other projects in my life... whoa, this was timely. Thank you.

Justine said...

I have been enjoying your blog - your "wrinting voice" is honest & down to earth. I too am amzed at what becomes popular sometimes, but know this... There's a place for all of us. So keep it up - hopefully I'll get the courage up to write more and reply more when readinf blogs

Justine said...

In reference to that lovely quote...
I Must be a real one because I'm TERRIFIED!

Bravo and well said!! As a fellow blogger I have said many times, "Seriously?" It never ceases to amaze me how someone can move an object from one table to another, take pictures and call it a blog post and get 3o someodd comments. Blogland has mmany mysteries. I am a fairly analytical person and I can not figure it out. I wrote a post yesterday that took me a great deal of thought and time and yet I get a few comments and some that literally moves one object in the same day, I might add gets a bunch of comments. Not sure if I have any answers, but it appears we all have the same unanswered questions.
I don't find what you wrote as jealousy at all, I find it a question that we have all asked,

Kathysue said...

PS I love your authenticity. It never works trying to be what you think others want you to be. God made you the wonderful special lady that you are. Love that you keep it real. xo

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

Oh, now I want to go read Kathysue's post! Great post Lakeitha, you keep it real and that is why I adore you. Seriously. Keep on doing and saying what you feel you want to do and say! Janell

Tiffany @ Savor Home said...

Oh my gosh! I can so relate to this post. I get nervous every time I click the publish button, too, so I feel ya. But I am comfortable in the fact that I am being me and that is the best I can do for myself and for my readers... Thanks for keeping it real!

Brandi said...

Just stopping through to tell you how much I love the new look of your blog! Gray, pink and white...makes me what to incorporate those colors into my home! LOL! : )

Annette {One Perfect Room} said...

Great sum up of it all. I am not 'big' at all either but as long as you are true to yourself and enjoy it then you will always be miles ahead. :)
