oh where oh where could it be?
My husband is laughing at me. You see, he came home to me taking pictures of our dinner. Yeah, that's right, of our dinner. I had a new recipe, thought I'd take pics and post the recipe if it turned out to be a hit (it did by the way).
Now normally I am happy to amuse my man, that is part of why he fell in love with me after all: my sharp wit and outrageous, some times twisted, sense of humour. This time; however, it made me realize just how crazy I am getting with this whole blogging thing. Seventy percent of my conversation is about blogging, either what I've posted or what others have posted. "Come read this" is a constant phrase heard in our home. Blogging has lately replaced reading novels for me. I have two, TWO, novels sitting on my night table, one of which I have only read 5 pages in. Anyone who knows me knows that this is bizarre behaviour.
"Who are you and what have you done with my wife?"
I would usually devour these books in two days. I just can't fit blogging, child care and reading in. Something has to go and it can't be the kids can it? No. No. Of course not. I love them. Really, I do.
So enthusiastic was I, that I even posted pictures of my MESSY house. WTH? Not exactly good for the ego. Now I have to say thinking it over today, I am a little embarrassed about that post. (I'm tempted to go back and delete them) I do have After pictures but I don't know if I am going to bother posting them. Really, who cares? I do, of course. I love seeing my house looking all lovely and clean. Record time for it staying that clean... 6.7 seconds. :) Like Kathy B said, it's just going to get messy again.
Lately I have been reading so many blogs thanks to SITS that I have gotten tons of new ideas of what I could be doing with my blog. Don't worry, I'm not out to steal any body's niche. I have no plans to start up a craft page or recipe page but see no harm in posting what I'm working on.
Maybe it's a good thing that while I was cooking tonight's dinner I had about 3 different conversations going on in my head about things to post. (Most of which I will forget by the time I sit down to type) At least my creative juices are flowing. Maybe this is good practice for when I finally get down to writing my novel. (I know there's one inside my head somewhere)
Still, am I all over the map with this? Should I just stick with just household anecdotes about my kids and husband, with the odd paid post thrown in for good measure? Or is eclectic a good thing?
How about a poll: Should a blog stick to just one thing?
I wanna know. :)
