Blog Envy

Blog Envy - Is that even possible? I think it is, actually I know it is, I have it. I have seen (in my personal opinion and around here my opinion is the only one that counts) the blog of all blogs. The Pioneer Woman. This blog is amazing. On the blog she has written a book about meeting and marrying her cowboy husband. She has her photography on her site. She has recipes. Do you have that visual? Well she has so much, oh so much more. It is like blog heaven. I guess in reality it is like having your favorite magazine on –line with complete articles. I love it. But it is overwhelming. Which I guess is what makes you want to keep going back for more and more and more. Seriously, my first thought when seeing the blog was- she must have a lot of time on her hands. This woman is like the Martha Stewart of Bloggyland.

Do I want a blog like that? No, I don’t. Do I really feel envious? Actually no. What I do feel is privileged to see inside the lives of so many interesting people here in the Blogosphere. And I want to say thank you to all. Thank you to all of the women and men that take the time to let us into their worlds. And ya know, it doesn’t matter if you have 1 subscriber or 1000s I thank you for letting us in. And I do remain in awe of the Pioneer Woman. So let us end where we began.

Pioneer Woman –I salute you. May your subscriber list continue to grow and may all of your days on the farm be merry and bright. Oh, yes I forgot to mention that tidbit of information. She lives on a ranch. I guess living in the boonies she needs a way to connect with the world. And connect she has. Go figure.

I'm with you on lovin her blog. It was really a joy to read and I left there feeling more motivated than before. It's funny how much reading other people's life stories really helps me to deal with my day to day issues. I guess not feeling alone is what makes these mommy blogs the best.

I think your blog is pretty great so make sure you give yourself credit. It always keeps me coming back for more!

You know, I've read the name of that blog in numerous places, but for some reason, I haven't actually checked it out yet. I guess I'll have to head over there--so many people have had such great things to say about her site. I don't know how people put as much as some of them do on their blogs, b/c I have all I can handle with the little bit that I do--and with all the blogs I like to read & comment on, etc? Forget it--I could make a career out of that alone!

BTW--I tried to leave a comment on the blog that you guest posted on yesterday, and it kept getting sucked into cyberspace! Anyway, I was there, cheering you on. :)

I'm a PW fan too! But, like you, I don't want her 'blog life'. Well, sometimes I do:) But when you get numbers as high as hers, things get to be a little too commercial. I love feeling like I know my readers and the sense of community is awesome. I don't know how she does that with 10,000 comments!

Thanks for the tip Renee. I'll check her blog out. Blog envy does exist. There are several blogs out there that I envy.

I love Pioneer Woman! She's keepin' it real man. Well, so she says. I'm having fun keeping track of her lodge re-do. I'm into that kind of thing I guess!

OK...
But what I REALLY wanna know is HAVE YOU FINISHED READING???

Report back to me as soon as you have & let me know what you think. For the record, I LOVED it. I cried many times, for many different reasons. Having said that--I think I am in the minority here. Made the mistake of going on Amazon to read the reviews, thinking I'd be reveling in the love. Um, no. Everyone else seems to hate it. Buncha haters. I can't deal with it.

So...let me know what you think!
p.s. I like you better than Pioneer Woman. I'm just sayin'.
