I have come to this point. A what is the point, point.
Something is missing. I can’t seem to find it. Maybe if I knew what I was looking for looked like - it would help.
Yea, I am having a blog identity crisis.
I like to write and love blogging. I wish I had time to blog more and had more inspiration for blog posts. Somedays my life feels very uninspiring and very dead-endish. Like I am in a rut. Non writing rut. Driving around the same block dozens of times rut. Not getting out of my head, much less, pj’s, rut. You know, RUT!
Why do I write? What is my blog about? I feel like if I knew why I even write then I would know what to write and I’d write more.
What message do I want to get across? Who even is my audience?
Sometimes I try to write what others write about. Reading their blogs, I want what they (YOU!) have: yummy looking food, funny/interesting spouse relationship stories, nifty DIY pics around the house, fun travels, adorable baby shots, and even super cute clothes! But what does Jolynn like to write about?
Some of you may already know that I’m not a photographer. If I post pics they usually are from my darling, talented husband. He has the eye. A blog I like to read is one peppered with pictures. I soak up your pics on your blog or Facebook or where ever. Likewise, I try to add pics to mine. :)
I don’t want to come across as annoying as the dog barking his head off down the road. After all, who doesn’t want lots of traffic and comments? But, a ‘yapping’ blog ain’t gonna get it. Pardon the grammar.
Who wants a yapper, when they could have me? Whoever >me< is.
I’m about to do something scary. I haven’t brushed my teeth or washed my face yet. So, this definitely feels like a not wide-awake move! It’s so scary it sounds like yapping to me.
Questions to hopefully discover what the missing point looks like:
What I want or wish for with my blog (in no particular order):
-post nice pics
-to be real; write about what I would want to read about
-share my life stories, (write to make sense of them)
-connect with my readers, via; lovely comments
-talk about relationship w/ God and what he is doing in my heart
-posts don’t have to be super-duper long all the time
So, maybe this is my lost point? Answering these questions hopefully will help to keep me focused on my writing.
If this is what my desires are, then with God’s help hopefully the yapping in my head will get quieter and quieter.
I’m not sure what my blog will look like from here on out but I’m attempting to work harder at keeping up with it. Another goal would be to post once a week. I’m excited but at the same time I know I can get pretty dry! Have you ever heard of a rut?!!
Living in Texas away from most of my family in Pa, will hopefully be another incentive for more published words. Jason also has family in Central America and Canada, too, that I know scroll down my site.
The dog has quite barking down the street for now and my 2 cups of coffee are begging me to get off my bum. Meanwhile, as I continue to ponder my point, I hope to get a post out once a week for now and I hope to see you here, too.
