Can a blog have a mid-life crisis? Or is it the blogger?
Either way, I have been doing a lot of thinking (and reading) about blogs, but not much actual blogging. Too much time on GOMI perhaps. The question that is raised is this: What kind of blog is this?
I like to think I have a life, but it is not really a lifestyle blog. Anyone who has read it knows that it is NOT a Mommy blog. Not really a fitness blog, although I do work out. Or a food blog, though everyone knows I love to eat and bake. And it is not really a travel blog, even though we do leave the house from time to time.
I don’t think I have to fit into any one category, but it helps to have a focus. Not everyone cares about how far (or slow) I run. Or what I had for lunch. Or what my dogs are doing on any particular day. I seem to be spending a LOT of time rearranging my house, decorating, making decisions on pool designs, etc. But I can barely articulate any of that to myself, let alone to you.
Is there a hodge-podge category? Does it matter? Here is what I think I am good at….research. I research every product I contemplate buying (right now, a toaster oven), every city we visit, every hotel room we stay in, who watches my dogs, every race I run, everything. And then I make the decision I think is best, which I can articulate. My opinions are my own. I am not sponsored by anyone or anything. I have no master except my own checking account balance.
I don’t promise to blog everyday. Or that you will be interested in every post. But it will reflect what I have been doing with my time, other than working, eating and running. I will be rearranging some furniture, doing some summer decorating, researching some new products, getting rid of some old products, planning some trips and generally doing what I do. I may even recap the past few months of similar activities. You never can tell.
And just because I can, a cute prarie dog picture. I spend a fair bit of a time at the zoo.
