blog envy


Do you have it?

It’s contagious, isn’t it?

Is it possible to aspire to bigger and better blogging things without looking over the fence?

Sometimes the grass is greener over there.  I don’t care what they say.

How is it even humanly possible to have 229,999 followers?  Yep, I added my name to list….230,000 and counting.

Man, is it ever intimidating.

It isn’t about the numbers.  Really.  It isn’t.

It is about quietly writing, hunched over my keyboard, and click clacking away to the tiny roar of my space heater.

It is about listening.

Listening to my voice.

Hushing all the outside din…….

Bravely hitting the publish button and not looking back.

I don’t envy the numbers or the big scale of things.  That is not what I aspire to.

But, I do envy those souls that have learned to hear their voices…….. even at a whisper.

That is what makes a honest blog……
