An Open Letter to my blog

Dear Blog,

I tried to break up with you.  I admit it, I did.  I was getting tired of your neediness, always demanding my time and attention.  I freaked out and ran away as soon as things got messy and complicated.  I thought maybe I just needed to change you and everything would be okay.  I re-named you, deleted anything even remotely controversial, and changed your whole look.

But then a strange thing happened.  I was no longer interested in you.  I didn’t like the “new and improved” you.  I missed you just the way you were.

I would watch other happy couples – blogger & blog – and sigh as I remembered all the good times we had.  How could I just throw that all away?  Sure, you were demanding.  Sure, sometimes I wanted to just serve food and eat it without having to take it outside into good lighting and snap photos of it.  Sure, sometimes I would rather flop on the sofa and watch Modern Family without the distraction of tending to you on my laptop.

I tried to go on with my life, but you left a gaping hole.  Even my kids noticed the difference.  “Aren’t you going to take a picture of that, Mom?” they would ask.  “This is yummy, you should blog this,” they would say.

I’m finally ready to admit it.  I’m lost without you.  I miss you.  I want you back.  I’m sorry I tried to run away from you.  So what do you say, Blog?  Will you have me back?

Sincerely Yours,
