A new year, a new blog. I’ve been batting the idea of starting a new blog for a little while, a little unsure as to whether I would commit, but apparently, I have done so. These few sentences have launched me into a new project, hobby, timesuck; however you look at it. Apparently, the new year is a popular time to launch new blogs. WordPress even has a challenge to help get you going, for which I am grateful. It’s actually Day 5 of the challenge, so I have some catching up to do.
I like to write, but I am terrible at keeping a personal journal. I think for the reason that it is so much easier to write to an audience. Even an audience of imaginary readers who may or may not stumble across my words and find something that resonates with them. I also need to write. Not in the burning, need to express myself, passionate sort of way. Rather, I’m a stay at home mom of three young kids, and writing full sentences, without mention of superheroes, Legos, or Pokemon, gives me a different sort of mental exercise than I normally get.
So here it goes. I’ve not totally fleshed out the focus of my blog. I’ve done that with blogs of the past and I ended up feeling beholden to the blog. Baking things just so I could blog about them, kicking myself when I forgot to take a picture of some step of some project. I am letting this one just be, and I will see what comes out of it.
