Goodbye Ultimate Blog Party 2010. Okay, yes, they party does officially end tomorrow, but in all reality I should have said goodbye yesterday or even the day before. While this blog party is a great way to help bloggers meet other bloggers, I think it's just too much for me.
I love this kind of thing, but I tend to get too wrapped up in it. I am sad to say that I think I have been neglecting my child as a result. Though she is a great sport and is definitely none the worse, I think I am. This is definitely one of those times where I am thinking of myself as a bad mom. I know we all have those times, and I know that it won't last long (at least I hope not). Especially, not that I am out to amend my ways.
And this is even after following someone's suggestion (if it's your please let me know, but I have read too many posts in the past week to remember... I would love to give you credit) to choose to read the links with a similar number to you. (ie. if your link on the UBP post is 104, you will read all the blogs with a number that ends with 4). This was a great suggestion, and I found it very helpful. But, alas, my obsession continued.
I was thinking about joining in on a Friday Follow, but am wondering if I am going to have the same problem. I really enjoy meeting new bloggers, especially mommy bloggers, and growing my online "community." Does anyone have any suggestions as to how they balance it all?
And as I write this post, I am thinking about everything else that I should be doing (including eat lunch).
- Finish the blanket I am making for a friend who just had a baby.
- Clean the house
- Clean the study so there is room for my brother to sleep
- Clean the guest room so there is room for my mother to sleep
- Do more planning for Sprout
- stART project
- Do more with Sprout!!!
Hope everyone had a great party!
