*This post is a product of my blogging funk and me being honest about what and where I want this blog to go.
When I started a blog I had secretly hoped I’d write one or two posts and one of those would go viral and I’d get tons of follower. What blogger doesn’t want that? Well that hasn’t happened in the yearish I’ve been blogging. It can get discouraging, hence the massive blogging break I took during the last part of the year. When I decided to come and take blogging more seriously I had a few post ideas, but those have been running thin, and I’m not really sure where I want to go next.
I guess you could classify this as a lifestyle blog, but that’s really a pretty huge category. I’m not a mommy blogger, full time DIYer, or food blogger, so what is this blog? I don’t really have an answer yet, but I know that I’d like to use this space as a place for me to share what’s on my mind and connect with others. This blog may make me a little money some day, but right now this is my hobby and this my space to share, so I’m less concerned about branding and numbers, and more concerned with building relationships and a supportive community.
One reason that I started typing in this little space is because I’m at a point where I’m really trying to figure out what to do next and how to do it. A lot of that has to do with really beginning to understand myself and how my brain works. I’ve spent most of my life trying to push myself to be outgoing or working myself too hard, which are both so exhausting. I’d really hoped that in my late 20’s I’d have things more figured out, but who am I kidding, I’m just as lost and confused as I was when I started college. At least I have a supportive husband to help me through it this time.
All this jumbled writing to say that this probably won’t be the last time I post something like this, but here’s what you can expect from this space…
A lot more personal writing, including more faith related posts. My faith is a huge part of my life, but I’ve never been great at talking about it. As I’m trying to figure life out I want to share it.
A good amount of not so serious, more lighthearted posts. I know that reading about deep stuff all day everyday can really start to weigh you down (I know it does for me), so while I’ll be writing more personal posts I’m also totally capable of writing fun lighthearted posts.
Of course some tips and tricks posts. What kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t write some blogging tips? I may not be a blogging pro, but I’ve learned a few things along the way and keep learning new things about blogging all the time.
So I’d love it if you stick around this space. I don’t really know where this blog (or my life for the matter) is going, but I’d love to have some support along the way. And I can’t promise I won’t have some whiny posts somewhere down the line, but for now I’ve gotten all my whining out so this will be the last one you see for a while.
