I have had a few people now tell me that my blog is hard to follow because I don’t really have a specific topic on which I write. I try to write about things that will inspire and empower people. And I always write about my faith, because my faith is so deeply woven into who I am.
Maybe that isolates me into turning people off of my blog because they see a post that is deep in philosophical faith rhetoric and they say, ‘Oh, it’s one of THOSE blogs!!’ People are afraid of matters of faith, I find. Either they don’t believe it to be possible, or true. Or, more often than not they have had some traumatic experience where they blame God. It happens, but I am getting off track and on a soap box I don’t want to be on right now.
My blog lacks a course. I want it to be one of inspiration and one of relationships. That is what I truly adore– relationships. I firmly believe that is the reason human beings exist. We exist to relate and to nurture and grow together and help.
I always find it hard to ask for help with my blog because everybody has an opinion. And to be honest, 99.9% I feel are not misguided, and not that they are not helpful, but they just don’t come from a point of view that has been helpful to me. I dunno.
I am full of a lot of thoughts on this tonight. I am full on many thoughts. I have spent my day watching shows that are the subject matter of homesteading and self-sufficient way of life. The common thread in all of them is people working together. I guess that is what is really on my mind tonight.
Thanks for listening, blogger friends and non-blogger friends and family who care about what I write. Just a introspective night trying to hone my skills as a writer and get focused. It’s all good, but I really wanted my blog to be further than it has become after three years of day in and day out writing.
