Having a blog is like....

When I started this blog I reasoned it would give me a creative outlet. I felt like I just needed to write. Oh sure, I've tried my hand at writing a book. Many times. Have I ever finished? Nope. I thought perhaps this bloggy-sphere outlet was a more obtainable goal. Posts are short. Therefore, I could finish something.

I've finished lots of somethings.

However, since joining Pinterest [which is highly addictive and there needs to be a support group for us addicts!] and clicking on many pins which takes me to many blogs, I've realized I don't really have a goal or theme for this blog. And, I've heard from the "experts" one needs a goal/theme for a blog. By the way, ever wonder who "experts" are and who declared that title upon them?

Insecurity. I want people to like me. I want to be popular. I want, I want. [yeah, I agree...I need some professional help, huh?!]

So, to finish the title of this post....having a blog is like going back to high school. Shudder.

Recently I've toyed with multiple ideas on how to focus this blog. But then I realized, this blog is alot like me. We both have undiagnoised, unmedicated ADD. I'm okay with that. I'm not back in high school. I don't need to try to prove myself to anyone. I don't have to be like everyone else. Crafty. Chefs. Ministers.

I just need to be me. Although back in the day when little feet slapped the kitchen floor and nap times still ruled, I was quite the chef, and in the height of all craftiness if I do say so myself. And I did. Because this is my blog. So there! Wait, I think I may have digressed by to Jr High.....whoa.

When I imagine anyone reading my blog posts, I picture readers in their comfy clothes sipping tea or drinking coffee. Perhaps even munching on a snack, or pie, or chocolate, or...  Maybe giving a reader a laugh when he/she needs it most, giving the reader something to think about. Or, a reader's mouth watering when a recipe is posted. I imagine the reader relaxed and taken away to another place when reading a short story post.

I just don't want to limit myself to a theme or goal. I just want to dance through this world with Light.

I'd love to give you a peek at what the next post will be...but a) I would ruin your bloggy reading surprise and b) I haven't a clue what is coming next!

See ya next time!


  1. I LIKE your blog just how it is. Keep it up :)

  2. Just came across this in a blog today and made me think about this post:

    "I have found that sometimes trying to be unique is the worst thing you can do for your writing. Looking around other blogs to see different topics will only discourage you from writing about something that peaks your interest. If you have an opinion about something, don’t hesitate to turn it into an article. It will be unique—whether you realize it or not."

  3. I left you a comment yesterday, but I apparently didn't do something right since it isn't here :)

    I really enjoy your writing. Just keep being yourself. That's what makes it great.
