Currently (and a giveaway!)

C U R R E N T L Y (1)This isn't a normal Currently post for me this week. I am doing some brainstorming in my head, well, really, a lack of brainstorming because I feel somewhat stuck.

I started Currently because I love community, and I wanted to know what others in the blogging world were Currently up to. I love where it's come, and how there are so many wonderful bloggers who link up with a co-host and me every Monday. But sometimes I'm not able to comment on everyone's post, and that starts making the Guilty Mc-Guilterson Monster enter in my head. And I feel crappy, because I feel guilty, and I start to doubt, and think to myself, "No one will want to come back because this week I just didn't have time to comment on hers." <---- I hate this feeling more than anything in the world.

So, why would I continue to put myself through that? I don't like it. I want to feel like this community understands what it's like to have a busy or crappy or sad or downright glorious week, where you cannot for the life of you, step in front of the computer and weave these relationships.

Sometimes it's just not possible.

I've taken to Twitter so much lately. There is a place there for me that I've come to cherish and love. There is a world, in 140 characters, that I feel at home in. And it's so much easier, for me, at times to just be there (especially since it's an app on my phone) and communicate and learn from other women, mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc. And I wish I could somehow create that comfortable, at-home space here.

But how?

First of all, I want to know what you think. You, as a reader, or as a blogger, or as a both-er, I want to know what you think.

Oh, and before I forget... after you fill out this super quick survey, you could win a $10 Starbucks gift card from yours truly, because I love you and I'm grateful for you.

Thank you for taking the time, sweet friends, and link up your Currently for this week!
