I’ve been thinking.
Yikes, I know, that’s kinda scary sometimes.
But I’ve been thinking about my blog here, and where I really want to go with it. I’ve been having mixed feelings about blogging. I enjoy it, but I’m not sure I want to write about my family life every day. I mean, sure, when there’s something super funny that my kids do, or something exciting going on (Like Bub crawling), or some cute pics now and then. But I really think I am going to start going more in the direction of posting frugal recipes and doing some reviews, and maybe some bible lessons that I study during the week.
I’m just not the kind of person that likes to share everything about my life. I just kind of feel like this whole blogging world can be kind of fake and more about finding out the latest gossip and “did you hear what happened to so and so” or “I can’t believe so and so said that”. I don’t know. Ever since I started blogging and reading other peoples blogs, I just get that uneasy feeling. Now, don’t get me wrong though. There are some really great blogs out there with uplifting and encouraging posts. I just feel like it’s too easy to get sucked into this whole online world, and then it’s like you’re living two different lives. You act one way out in the real world, but then, in cyberspace, it’s all too easy to be someone else. You say things that you might not say to someones face and it’s just too easy to hide behind that computer screen.
I always try to think about what I’m writing, and think, “Now would I say this if I didn’t have a computer screen to hide behind?” And if I wouldn’t, then I’d better not write it either. You never know when someone you know in person, a friend, family member, co-worker, may find your blog if you haven’t already told them about it.
I do care what people think of me. Some may say that you shouldn’t care, but that’s not true. Now if you are standing for something you believe in, then that’s a different story. But if you care about what people think of your character, then you’d better be careful what you write.
Well, there’s my little tangent that I just went off on!hehe But seriously, I don’t like feeling like I’m getting sucked into cyberspace and out of the real world. Feeling like, oh, I’ve got to check so and so’s blog to find out what’s going on with her today!
So I’m not going to post everything that’s going on in my life and I may not even post every day. I do want to try and post 2 or 3 new recipes a week, and do a couple product reviews a month. So between all that, I should still be able to post every day, but probably only 1 or 2 really thought provoking posts a week. I just have too much on my plate to try and put alot of thought into each post every day!
Anyway, just thought I’d throw that out there, and I look forward to sharing God’s word,some great recipes, reviews and the occasional give away!
P.S. If you have any ideas or questions about something for me to do a post about, please feel free to share or ask! I’d love some ideas from others!
