Just Thinking about my Blog

I cannot be the only one...who sometimes thinks about their blog and isn't really sure what it is. I question: is it informational, is it anecdotal, is it funny, or is it even relevant? I can't help but wonder sometimes, just what it is I am trying to accomplish here.

What exactly is my blog about?

I write about what goes on in this little life of mine. Sometimes I write about being a Mama and the trials and tribulations that come along with that title. I love to write about my yoga tales and jogging woes. I can't help but spill my guts about the moments of friendship that aren't the friendliest and, of course, I am obligated to share my reviews of the latest and greatest products I have found, but are any of these thoughts that I offer the world really necessary?

When I start down this rabbit hole of "what exactly is my blog about," I try to think of what it is that draws me back to certain blogs that I enjoy reading, and the list usually looks like this:

Pros:
-Honest
-Humorous
-Relatable
-Conversational
-Topical

When reviewing the reasons I keep coming back to read certain blogs, I generally come to the conclusion that those are also the reasons I feel compelled to write.

Ultimately, I write to let some of the thoughts that swirl around in my noggin' out and to hopefully connect with other people. Making that connection helps me to  realize, at last, I am NOT the only one who thinks and feels the way I do.

Is what I write here important? Nah, probably not, but if it makes one other person feel like they have stumbled upon a kindred spirit then I consider it a job well done.

Happy Blog Reading
