Let’s be serious for a moment… blogging is hard. Well, not for everyone, but you see, I’m not extremely creative or artsy (coloring in the lines is still a chore for me), I have no future in culinary arts (I am getting better, though) and I’m having a good day when I can get my bangs to cooperate, much less the rest of my hair. So, out goes the DIY blog, the recipe blog and the hair and makeup tutorial blog.
What do I blog about, then? Sure, I have some pretty random, funny things happen to me. But they don’t happen every day. And seriously, who really wants to read a blog post about how I practiced doing my hair for my roommate’s wedding for three hours last night? Okay, I can think of a few: my mom, my dad, my grandma… you get the point.
I’ve set a goal to blog twice a week and so far it isn’t going so well. But, I’m doing better than I’ve done before. Maybe I should just start writing about all of those crazy, weird things that have happened to me in the past. Or maybe I will include some DIY, recipes and hairstyles (although, they may be classified as disaster stories). Maybe I should write about what I’m learning in my quiet time.
Regardless of what I’m writing though, I will be writing. That is the purpose of this blog, after all. To hone a craft through practice.
