I haven't blogged in a month. This is really not like me. This past week, I got to thinking why it is I don't consistently blog like I used to! Here's the deal...
I feel like the blogging atmosphere is changing. My blog friend, PIPM, blogged a few weeks back asking her readers what they want to hear! I feel like maybe I should do the same. My blog got all of it's readership when I was wedding planning and obviously had a ton of content to write about. I now feel like I am not sure what to write about and sort of feel like my life and blog posts would be boring to all of you!
I am not a fashion blogger
I am not a crafty DIYer
I am not a creative Pinterester
I am not planning a wedding
I am not pregnant
I am not a mommy blogger
I am not a coupon queen
What do I write about on a day-in, day-out basis now? That's really the crux as to why I haven't been consistent.
Another reason relates back to this post when I said I've had a really hard struggle finding friends. Not just silly "let's get dinner" acquaintances.... but real, legit friends. It's been hard to purge some relationships I have made while here so far, but I've had to just keep giving it to God knowing that he will provide the right kinds of people to invest my limited time into. Luckily, and thankfully, I have found an amazing small group through my church and I am trying to get more involved there. I don't sit alone in church anymore, which is awesome!
All to say that I feel like my life is still in a teeter-totter motion..... goes one way then the next. And I just don't feel like dragging all my readers through the wild ruckus! Know what I mean? My current life isn't cookie cutter.... I don't go home and cook up recipes for my doting boyfriend of husband..... I don't stroll my baby around in a park all day or have mommy parties.
I am single... I work constantly...and I am about to live alone again. I am sort of in this in-between stage of not knowing who I am or what I am supposed to be doing. I'm tired of society (correction -- southern society) placing this cultured timeline on me. On the contrary, what's a blog without posting pictures of your family or baby? I don't do fashion either, so I am a bit at a loss for words.
So, I am just going to pretend I have no audience. I don't care if you chose to read or not.... it may be boring... just a forewarning, but I am not just going to STOP blogging just because I don't depict what the status quo of a blogger should be. Ya, of course one day it will transition back to family, or planning a life with someone, recipes, etc., but ya know what? It's just not me right now.
