I’ve been looking for purpose in things, both on a small and large scale.
One of those things is this blog. It’s a funny thing, blogging– putting your thoughts out into the world, to both known and unknown individuals (although I guess that could be controlled– setting a password on the blog so it’s not totally public or not sharing the url with friends and family so it’s pretty anonymous.) I’ve chosen to share the blog with family and friends and leave the blog public, so I’m left in this limbo of the blogosphere where I don’t share my innermost thoughts and musings on things as I might in a journal and I also aim to have the writing be a little more generally accessible.
And I seem to be finding that being in limbo is a challenging place to be. Am I trying to be a little bit of something for everyone and in the process being nothing for no one?
So to get back on track, I’m working on finding purpose for this blog. I’ve mused on this before, but I’ve strayed from that original purpose.
For a time, this was a travel blog, which was wonderful. A documenting of my travels through New Zealand, Bali, and Malaysia. But now I’m settled again (although itchy to travel, as always!).
It strikes me that I should write about what I love, know about, and care about.
- Social issues
- Life journeys
So I’ll see how that goes. Next blog: my attempts at using a sourdough starter!
