I've been giving lots of thought to my blog, and wondering what it means to me. I'm certain that in the beginning it was something else, and then somewhere along the way something happened, things changed. I've come to realize that the sooner I make peace with where I am now, and what I want for my blog, the easier it will be to accomplish a blog post. I can't say for certain where this is headed, but I can say what my thoughts have been.
- Who is my target audience? Seriously? I have read entirely too much information on marketing, branding and social media, trying to get the 'blog thing' to mean something to me and I am sick of the idea that my authentic self is 'not enough', or should be presented in a certain manner to insure financial or status success. Reminder to self: I have NO business to promote! Write from the heart!
- Pinterest. Hmm, that one got me quiet for awhile. The whole idea of my photos being shared in a way that I cannot control had me uneasy, so I shut down. And you know what? I was miserable. I don't think that I was meant to hoard ideas and inspiration or my creativity. That creativity is a God given gift and I certainly don't think that it was awarded to me to be selfish with. My heart has longed to inspire others, to motivate them and challenge their ideas and abilities, a blank screen is hardly gonna make that happen. Pin on!
- Plenty of other garbage recorded in this:
This has been an awesome tool, to allow me to see the absurdities of some of the 'rules' I seem to make for myself, and allow me to move beyond. It truly is a dangerous book and yet so liberating, too!
I think I'll break another 'rule' and go get crafty even though the weather is amazing outside!
