Conventional wisdom on blogging is.... have a direction and blog 2-3 times weekly. Especially if you want it to be a business.
I have to say - at this renaissance time of my life- direction is definitely missing! I mostly use this blog as a journaling tool of sorts.... and I have no clear idea of my readership... so I ask you (if you are reading).... to share your ideas of things you might like me to write about.
I am in the midst of discovering who I am... of delving into crafts and activities I want to learn... and deciding how I want to write this 3rd act of my life... And in a sense - however meandering... that is what I think I am sharing. My ideas.. my feelings.. my confusions and discoveries.. in this strange period.
Not so strange really.. I remember being 19-20 and under a lot of pressure to figure out what I want to be.
And I am in the same space - without the pressure. I already have a career or two behind me. I also know I have a career or two ahead of me but I don't have the pressure to decide! It is kind of fun to re-explore things I have always enjoyed to see if I can learn more or if I still enjoy them as much.
So there it is... A blog with some direction but not much. I do have some things I plan to explore in 2016 ...
Still quilting. I plan to finish more of the projects I have started. And I plan to spend more time on handwork... The hexie grandmother flower garden, the Hawaiian blocks and a new applique project that I will share later. So you will see a lot more quilting in my WIP posts.
Still moving forward in my health journey with food and movement, so there will be posts like that
And I will continue my work on improving my clutter/ cleaning / organization. Because it is not my natural gift....
Still love the serendipity of adventure so there will be posts about taking opportunities and risk and failure
And the occasional opinion piece
I also keep at my other blogs - children's liturgy, sometimes spiritual reflections, and hometown celebrations (activity books I self-published once upon a time that feature local history). I do have some plans to work on more group activity plans that incorporate things I am interested in - like children's books. But time will tell on that one!
I guess the main point of this blog is to say... Sorry! I am not a focused person :-). I will share my journey in this third act of my life and keep exploring and sharing
Again... If you have a question or want me to research and share and opine on a topic, do speak up or email me because I do like to write and I have fun researching...
Enjoy the journey and lets see where it takes us!
