I love to take pictures. I hate to transfer those pictures to a computer.

I'm not sure when this phobia started. Perhaps it was when I was abroad that one semester and uploaded all my pictures to Snapfish with witty captions and then accidentally deleted all my witty captions in one fell swoop. Regardless, I hate uploading pictures from my camera.

But here's the thing. It's not just the camera. It's uploading pictures from the internet, saving them on my computer and then having to upload them to blogger. I hate it. I really, really hate it. But I have this sense of obligation when I'm writing in blogger. A sense that I have to include pictures to make my words more interesting. Because words don't seem to stand on their own in bloggy land.

But the thing is, despite how much I love to take pictures, I love to write infinitely more. And I could post little blurbs like this seventeen times a day if I didn't have picture guilt every time I posted. There's this nagging fear that the ones who do visit my blog will grow bored of my words and never return.

So do me a favor - come back. Come back even when I'm not posting cute pictures of my puppy, or random things I happened to find already on my hard drive. Come back when I'm not being at all interesting and I'm whining about work. Because my blogging self esteem could really use the boost.
