I'm not proud of it. In fact I'm a bit embarrassed by it. But it's the truth. Sometimes I succumb to blog jealousy. It's true.
I get jealous of people who have more followers than me but started blogging later then I did (basically everyone since I've been blogging since the beginning of time! Ok, since 2003. Whatever).
I get jealous of people who get to do awesome giveaways!
Get sponsored hotel stays!
So, I get some blog envy. It's true. Most of the time I'm purely happy for friends who've got their blogs to a place where they're getting sponsored stuff or getting heaps of followers, it's just on the bad days when I think "what am I doing wrong over here."
Mostly, the jealousy fuels a kick in the bum. The only way to get your blog out there is to blog, to comment, to do blog swaps...ie to work at it.
And at the end of the day, my little spot on the internet doesn't need to be bigger. It doesn't need to fancier, flashier, I don't need to give away cars Oprah style. And I don't need 40,000 followers. Because well, that's not why I'm here.
That doesn't mean I won't work at it, it doesn't mean I won't get the pangs now and again. All it means is - this space is just right. Just the way it is.
