carrot, apple & courgette salad

Blogging is hard. It's something that takes dedication, perseverance and a willingness to fail. Not every post will hit the mark and the ones you believe to be your best invariably become your least read. It's not a science and you mostly don't know who you're talking to but always hope that you reach one or two that maybe, possibly, might like to come back. On occasion you may not feel up to writing, photographing, processing but you do it anyway and these posts seem to always turn out the most popular ones, which both baffles and pleases you. Stats drive and deter you. A bad numbers day has the power to ruin your sunny disposition until you realise they're not all that important. You might stress if no-one has felt the urge to leave a comment and worry you've not connected with your readers in the way you'd hoped to. It's complicated. Emotional even. But ultimately you do it because you love it. It's a personal scrapbook holding memories, ideas and...... you. Yep, blogging is hard. But undoubtedly, positively, most definitely worth it.
