When I don't know what to write, my tendency is to tinker with my blog. This morning I read a friend's blog and she had used a snazzy new template, from a site I had never heard of before. So of course I clicked over to peruse the layouts there. But I am partial to 3-columns and I didn't see any, so then I googled...

But I resisted temptation. And now I'm going to put the computer down and go read a book!

Finding my bloggy voice again

I have had a really hard time writing anything here lately. I think I am conflicted about my voice. I am not a funny southern woman like BooMama or BigMama.I don't do giveaways, host discussions or contests. I don't write deep devotionals or quote much scripture. Frankly, lately I haven't written much of anything at all.

Par of it could be only have so much creativity, and since I am writing regularly with Troy over at He Said, She Said, that's all I got.

It's hard not to get caught up in the numbers and the comments and the "Oh, maybe I could make a little money" and all that. But really, what am I doing here in the bloggy world?

I've had thoughts of going on hiatus (even though I just had one during Lent) or deleting this blog altogether. But I'm not quite ready to give up on it yet.

Any thoughts?
