Amy these are great posts and you've summed up a lot of the things I've been feeling over the last few months without being able to attend this year PLUS you've made me feel better about planning to go next year. Looking forward to the next installment!

I can't remember if this was your first one. Last year was my first blogger where it was clear that there were blogebrities and everyone else. I felt those things you described more intensely - who am I? what am I doing here? will I ever be more like HER?

I am inspired by you saying that this is your blog, to do what you want with it, writing or photography or brain dumping to clear your mind. That's enough.

I love this. How did you get inside my head? Was it while I was sleeping?

Amy, I tell myself this every day. I want to be known as a writer. I want people to come to my blog for my words. I want to be better than I am now. I want to grow.

It's not everyone's goal, and I'm not judging if other people want to blog for another reason, but that's my reason. I have to repeat it to myself loudly when I get jealous of other bloggers, especially when they can stay home with their kids based on their ad/blogging incomes. I want that so bad I could die. But every day I just keep telling myself to write as well (and as quickly) as I can.

Don't tell yourself you have to put more time in, because it'll become too overwhelming. Just tell yourself you'll put in a few good sentences every time you write. You're already a great writer; you just don't know it yet.
