You would think that I had this all figured out by now. I have been blogging for about 2-3 years and I’m still asking myself the same questions. This must mean that I didn’t answer those questions, right?! I’ve been wondering what are the boundaries that I will not cross when it comes to blogging? What is my purpose in blogging? Is this something that I want to pursue personally or professionally?
After thinking about some of this, I have come to the realization that the reason why I am not able to move forward in my blog is because I am also a bit stagnate in life. Mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, there are things that I must do to move forward. I have been very hesitant to do those things.
I want my blog to accurately reflect who I am, but I haven’t been willing to be transparent about some aspects of myself. Now, I am not talking about my family or my relationships, but myself. Ultimately this blog is about me. It’s about my adventure as a mother, not about my kids, friends, family, or anything else. In many ways I have separated different aspects of what I like to do and who I am and moved them away from this blog. I thought that my readers would not want to read about my cooking or crafting projects. I thought that it should be separated because this is a “mom blog.” I really enjoy crafting and blogging, but I wasn’t sure how the two would fit together without driving my readers away.
Well, it’s time to find out. I will begin to take some new steps to improve my blog in a way that truly reflects who I am as a mother, wife, and woman. Bear with me, I am no expert…
