Blog or blagh?:
this is the part where i ramble about nothing... maybe something
Are you of the sort who thinks that a blog should be personal or that it should be for business/profit, etc?
I've been really getting into a lot more blogs recently and the more I come across the more corporate they seem. I don't exactly know my stand on this yet. But I do feel my self pulling away from these types of blogs. I like the more personal ones. The parts where the writer tells me who they are. The parts where they make me feel like I'm apart of their blog. I'm not just some authentic hit or a target audience. Granted, I think it's AMAZING that a blogs make money and generate business.
I don't really have a "destination" for this blog.. and I spent the better part of yesterday reading old posts to try and figure out what my blog came "across" as. Is it a craft blog? A personal blog? An inspirational blog? I honestly have no clue. I do feel like it's my blog. It's about the things that I like and am inspired by. I follow people who I feel a generally kindred spirit with or have inspired me.
There is a point in my blog writing where everything CHANGED. I stopped complaining about everyday life and I started journaling. I used this space on the web to connect with people and share my love of crocheting and journaling. It's because of Janel's 30 Day Journal Challenge. It shook me out of my perpetual slump and got my mind focused. I thought outside of my daily problems and turned it into art. Those prompts started something inside me that got me to this place where my blog is. I feel like my blog has just grown up so much and me with it. I still could complain here, and a lot of time I will come write a grumpy post. I hesitate on the PUBLISH button and just leave it in the drafts. Just getting the words out was all I needed.
So, I guess my blog is just a cronological list of what happens in my days, my thoughts, and my crafty spaces.
I don't want to make a GOAL for my blog, because I honestly suck at goals. I'm getting better at accomplishing what I set out to do. I just want to connect with people. I want to share fun things about crafting and myself. And I hope that really shines through.
What do you think about this blog and your own? Do you feel like personal blogs are more intersting or do you feel like business-ey blogs have more appeal?
