about "blahbing" on so many blogs...

I just started a new blog.  It is called my morning moxie and I am really excited about it. It is my 11th blog.  Yes, eleventh.  (I know)  Even more interesting, it is actually the second blog I have started by that name. 
It wasn't supposed to be this way.  It all started so innocently with a travel blog.  It felt so brilliant...go on a trip and write to friends and family about adventures from half a world away.  Fun, right?  While I was on that trip, however, I was inspired to start Daily Perspective.  That is something that I never saw coming and would never change.  Then I started with the blahbitties.  (this blog)  My little trio of blogs was so cute.
Then it grew.  Another travel blog.  A blog/hub/webpage for my art/passion/creative ideas.(a candid voice)   A between friends blog.  Then the book blog.(treatise on ink)  A coupon blog. (coupons make centsAnother travel blog.  A personal "collect my thoughts together so I dont go crazy because I have so many blogs" blog. (if you're counting, I'm just kidding on that one)  The fairly new art projects blog (blARTog).  And finally the newest addition to the family, the new moxie blog, which is about"waking up to a more healthy, creative and balanced life".
I feel like taking a nap after thinking/writing about all of those blogs in one place.  Seriously, I'm bloghausted.
I have considered getting rid of some of my blogs, but I am too attached.  Or maybe I am lost too deep in the online woods of blogland.  Why am I even sharing my life with anyone who knows how to turn on a computer?  And if I am going to put it out there, why am I not trying to make money doing it?  It seems ridiculous.  But then again, maybe I have grown because of blogging.  Maybe I am more disciplined.  Maybe I have developed new ideas and even made new friends.  Yes, perhaps, despite the hundreds of hours of my life I sometimes feel went into some internet black hole, blogging is simply a part of my journey. And now, after dozens of trip musings, almost 1000 photos, some new books read, money saved and new art, ideas and inspirations created, I look back down the blog trail as a new and better person.  Then, all I feel I can do is look ahead and keep going, typing and sharing, only dreaming of what the next view will bring.

Thank you for reading this and any of my other blogs you may read (or will click to today).

a fighter

You think I'd despise you,
But in the end I wanna thank you,
'Cause you've made me that much stronger...

every word resonates and...every memory...every moment makes my heart both break and grow stronger.
