I go through rhythms with this blog – promises of regular and consistent posting, periods of malaise and lack of inspiration, times of too much inspiration and too little time to write, and quite often the frustration with my ability to craft words to express what I want to.
Every so often I come back to wondering what this blog is actually for, what it’s about. It began, over a decade ago, with a different name and with the purpose of sharing my artwork (which consisted mostly of anime fanart!). The topics come and go with my interests, which are wide-ranging and often short-lived. Last year it was mostly about travel; this year so far has been almost entirely about food. There hasn’t been much consistency at all, so is it really any wonder that there aren’t too many people reading? But then again, is that necessarily the point?
My blog is like me I suppose – I like to try everything Buy Cialis, and like to think that I’m pretty okay at a number of things, but perhaps not as good as I’d be if I just chose one thing. But lately in my new job I’ve felt that the breadth of my skills can be just as useful, in the right environment, as someone with a very specific thing that they are brilliant at. I’ve found the right place for my set of skills professionally; surely I can do the same with blogging?
I obviously have a lot more thinking to do, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on blogging, as a reader or as a blogger yourself. Do you like to stick to one topic, or just like the insight into people’s varied lives?
