Remember when it seemed like everyone had a blog? Remember how fun it was to read people's life updates?? Now the only blog posts I read are the ones I find on Pinterest. But it's just not the same. Those blogs are usually written by women who have found a solid niche. Ya know...healthy living, fitness, organization, crafting (hah!), DIYs (hahhh), how to be the best mother ever....--Good for them! Really.
But why do I have a blog??
I definitely don't have a blogging specialty or agenda.
I don't update with any regularity. I don't even consider myself a good writer. Honestly. In fact I remember telling a friend back in 2010, that I felt like a freakish train wreck; and that maybe the majority of the people reading my blog just couldn't look away. It felt like that Hemingway quote, "There is nothing to writing. All you have to do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."
But today, maybe the question to ask myself is, why do I have THIS blog??
I've considered leaving it and starting fresh for...ever now. There's so much old, stale energy attached to it. Remembering it all feels so heavy, and unnecessary.
But now what?
A new blog? (If I want to keep blogging then the answer to that is, 'Duh, YES!')
What should this new blog be about?
Blonde moments? Sure. There will always be an abundance of those.
Mommy life? Maybe. I'm so proud of those girls. They amaze me on a regular basis. But they are getting older and I feel a need to protect their privacy.
I could blog about my fumbling through the longest grad program ever. Maybe. All the things I diagnose myself with daily. (Although I have been reassured that my Kidney Qi is in tact.) Or that one time I had trouble locating someone's pubic symphysis during a practical test. (So so glad I brought the bf along to be my model for that one... He forgave me. lol) That Conception vessel channel can be tricky!
Nope. Off limits. He's super private and I'm super selfish. I'm keeping that to myself. :)
I will say that if I compiled a list of all the qualities I've ever wanted in a partner, he embodies that list and exceeds it. And I love and adore him more than I thought humanly possible.
What should I call the blog??
That kind of depends on how I want to label myself... And that's so hard to do.
Seriously though, I do have a URL, and if it continues to feel right, I'll share it.
[Insert happy emojis here.]
