But, dear and beloved Thursdays, now what?
Every now and then, I find that a blog inventory is a good idea. This is where I ask myself, "What is it I do here anyway?" And since I see a blog as a living, changeable thing, my blogging fit changes from time to time, much like a seasonal change in clothing happens from those blistering hot summer days to the cooler autumn ones. So right now, my blog is in a seasonal wardrobe transition.
Never has my blog been an advice-to-writers blog or a writing-tips blog. There are WAY more people who know WAY more about that sort of thing than I do. But I am a mom, a wife, a teacher, a writer, a freelance editor, a middle grade book reader, and a dog lover. I also love summer and the ocean. Sounds just like my bio over there. *peeks at bio* Oh, and I love dark chocolate too. Man, chocolate could be the subject of many blog posts.
Spreading word about middle grade books each Monday (which I've been doing for quite some time) and blending the other areas of my life for my Thursday posts creates this little part of the internet that is simply me being me--blogging about what I love. So that's my new blogging fit. Because, you know, I need a plan. I love a plan. Even if it matters to no one but me.
What about you? If you blog, why do you? And how did you find a blogging fit? Do you allow your blogging fit to change if needed? If you don't blog, what interests you enough to read someone's blog and maybe even follow it?
