If you blog, you've probably read lots of times about how important it is to evaluate why you're blogging, and let your answers dictate your blogging style and content.
I haven't really done that. It's funny when I think about it, how eclectic my entire life is. If I take a personality test, the results are usually some strangely clashing answer that indicates that I might be an unstable person. Trying to settle on a decorating style for my home is equally frustrating. Oooh, that French Country home is so lovely! Oh man, that funky modern one is awesome too! But wait, I love that "traditional with a twist" house!
Anyway, I've never really wrapped my mind about why I want to blog. Do I want to just preserve memories and have fun doing it? Do I hope to supplement my husband's income? I cringe at taking personality tests these days. The hope is gone that one will really peg me. My home goes basically undecorated because I can't even decide on colors, much less an actual style. And yeah, clearly my blog is suffering too.
But guess what? I have actually come to a conclusion in this matter! Are you ready?
I really just want to write.
Ta-daaa! That's my answer. I love to write. I started keeping a diary when I was a little girl and have kept one going ever since. Like I told my kids today, I was most prolific during junior high and high school, but sometimes still I just need to process, and I'm a visual learner, so seeing my thoughts in print is highly satisfying.
So. I'm sorry you can't ever know what to expect when you come here . . . but then again, maybe that's part of my charm. Ha! :-)
