I feel like I've probably covered this topic already, but when it comes to blog talk, you can never get too tired of blog posts about blogging...right?
Well good, because I feel like this is a topic that needs to be talked about. It all came to mind when a blogging friend asked me about my weekend plans. I casually mentioned needing to write up some posts because I didn't have any posts ready for the week (yes, that really does happen).

I think that every job, every hobby, and every thing in life comes with some pressure. There's pressure to meet deadlines, get to-do lists done, and just be the best we can be.

It's not about the perfection when it comes to blogging. For me, it's all about sharing life and fostering a community with others.
So what does blogging mean to you? Do you ever feel pressure to post? What are some obligations you feel when it comes to blogging?
