What Happened to My Blog??

I posted how I was a "guest blogger" on a friends blog.  It was really fun.  It was fun to sit and think about what I was going to write.  To try and be witty and funny.  To put my thoughts down in a more organized thoughtful manner.  I think that's how I used to blog.  Now it seems it's more been just get it out and get it down, before I forget, or while I have time.  There weren't a lot of comments on my post but the few made me happy, really happy!  At first I thought man am I so vain and shallow that comments on a blog telling me how funny I was just completely made my day.  But as I thought about it I realized it was more then just the comments.  I've always been/wanted to be a writer.  I've always enjoyed writing and imagined someday writing a book.  Until I have a great idea and tons of time to write, blogging has been my creative writing outlet.  Before blogs existed it was journaling.  I can't even tell you how many journals I have! 

So I love to write, but my blog has turned into a total Mommy blog.  Not that there is one thing wrong with that, it just doesn't quite feel like me. I wondered, what happened to my blog?  I thought about how I used to blog write, it was better.  Not that I felt like our life was better or what I wrote about was better, just the way I wrote.  It's funny, with how much more in love with my life that I am now than I was then, I should be even that much a greater writer!

I feel our blog should be more reflective of who I am.  I know I can still document our lives, Croix's learning and adventures, and still have my voice come out.  I also think I need to have a few more posts just about life and thoughts.  So this is my new goal, let my voice come out a little stronger through the words I use to document our lives.

Man, it is like we share a brain or something! Pretty much what I wrote last night in some ways. Good luck to us both in our endeavors to continually find ourselves within our ever changing lives.

I'm reallly really really happy for you! I still struggle though. I can't find a happy medium. I want to post mommy things, but I also really want to post my sarcastic thoughts too. Do I need a specific audience? I don't know. Also, you are popular. Your post definitely had the most views out of any so far! So congrats!
