Sometimes I have a bit of an identity crisis on here.
Sometimes I feel like a mom blogger. I blog about the funny things my kids say or I write them birthday letters. There are some mammoth mommy bloggers that I read and I think oh, I really need to steer my posts that way. Even more than that, some of them are super involved in their local blogging community. My mind goes a mile a minute and oh, wouldn’t a Charlotte mommy-blogger group be so much fun!
Other days I feel like a geek girl. I’m a professional programmer and love techie stuff whether it be my iPhone or just some cool thing I found online. I found some rockstar geek girl bloggers yesterday and I thought man, wouldn’t I love to be a rockstar geek girl like that..I really should write about all this coding and techie stuff I’m immersed in.
Sometimes, I’m simply a Christian blogger. I put my heart on the line over and over and my soul is satisfied when I share that. There are some great Christian bloggers out there and I know I could write about that every single day and be happy.
I love to be the comedian. I can’t tell you the satisfaction I get when someone can laugh at something I wrote. Because sometimes you have to be there and sometimes you can write it well enough for people to feel like they were there. I read other blogs that are super funny and wonder if I could do that every day.
I’m also a writer, a cyclist, a fashionista, a designer, a photographer, a couponer, and a cook.
I guess sometimes I just feel like I need to peg this blog into one thing and be really good at that. Because that’s what the blogging experts say to do and those expert blogs look like so much fun. Some people have said they like coming on the blog and not ever knowing what type of post it will be. I’m sure some are turned off when they are expecting a spiritual nugget and then have to read about my new hair cut. I’d really like to find my niche. But I can’t. I am all those things. Some days I’m only one of those and some days I’m all of them. Usually on those days, I don’t even have time to be a blogger. I guess when you get to it, the thing I’m good at, the thing I know the most about, the thing that is my niche, is me. And as self-absorbed as that sounds, I can’t change it without losing some part of me.
I don’t think I have a pretty bow to put on the end of this except to say to those that stick around, I can’t thank you enough. I would write this blog (and did for 6 years) with no one reading it, but it sure makes it fun when you do. I hope you’ve learned a little, laughed a little, cried a little and one day, remember all those a lot.
