Did you miss me? Probably not. But boy oh boy have I missed my blog. The poor thing has been going through a bit of an identity crisis. Or, if you don't think blogs can have those then let's say that the part of me that writes this blog has been going through an identity crisis.
I think it really all goes back to this post, when I discovered the world of blogs. Until that point I had believed that I was simply one of many, many women who write blogs that are pretty much all exactly like mine. So imagine my surprise when I realized that this was not the case, not at all.
Sure, there are hundreds of women who write blogs just like mine, but there are also some women who get paid to write their blogs. There are people who have photography blogs, and craft blogs, and mod podge blogs and sewing blogs and food blogs and so much more!
And I guess discovering that the blogging world was not one dimensional like I had always thought it was, but rather three dimensional made me feel flat. Boring. What is the point of my blog anyway? I didn't know, but I kept writing in it because that's what I like to do.
Until this article came out. And then this blogger, who happens to be my favorite wrote this post. And then I, I mean my blog, really started to fall apart.
I felt like I didn't know what my purpose was, I didn't know who my audience was, I didn't know who I was. Identity crisis, see I told you.
And so, I have decided. This is a photography blog if I take a picture that I really like. And it is a food blog if I cook/bake something that I really like. And it is a crafting blog if I make something that I really like. And it is a mommy blog if the kids do something funny/crazy/exasperating that I really like/don't like. And in between, it is the place where I come to relax my brain by letting all the thoughts that crowd me in have a place to go. How does that sound?
And so, I hope, I'm back. I mean, my blog is back. Whatever.
Is it weird if I want my blog to have a mission statement? And did you manage to click on all my awesome links?
