Fear of judgement...?

OK, I admit - I am still so very new to this blogging thing, I am almost afraid of it?
Why else would I NOT post to my blog more frequently - I AM constantly thinking about it, and have this constant need to do it.
To be clear - I LOVE reading blogs, love seeing new ideas, reading about creative process, seeing pictures, I even leave a comment if I have something to say! So what fear I am talking about? It's my OWN blog that gives me doubt? Why? I guess it is all about that good old self-doubt. Do I have something to say? Is it relevant to anyone? Is it self-indulging? Self-centered?
Maybe. Maybe not. It is all in the eye of the beholder (or reader in this case) and I guess I am just afraid of some kind of judgment...? Silly, I know. Silly, silly silly.
So I will stop that. On to the blogging and sharing! :)

I think Marley approves:


  1. How funny you mentioned this. A long time ago I started a blog and then closed it after one post. I figured no one would be interested in what I had to say. Now that I've joined "My Quilt Place" I can have a blog space and I can just write what I want and not care if anyone reads it or not because there's plenty of other stuff on that site for me to do. That's where I found the link to your blog. I would imagine your traffic will increase the longer you're at My Quilt Place because there are lots of people joining daily and it only started on March 1. Anyway, I love the photo of Marley!

  2. Fear of judgement/failure is pretty universal. After much thought, I have decided that I fear success about as much as failure, because if I fail, it't over, if I succeed, then I have to continue and risk failure all over again. No one hit wonder here, just go for failure by default. Marley looks just like my late Kenai Rasputin. After 4 years we still laugh at his antics, he left big paw prints and lots of hair on us.
