    Some great points here. One point I would add is that it’s OK not to blog, and often this is preferable to blogging just because you feel you have to, or you haven’t posted in a while. It’s OK to have a meal without photographing it first, or a day out with your kids without uploading it to Facebook. Let your blog enhance your life rather than ruling it.
