For starters, let’s celebrate the great and wonderful chocolate chip. It’s been there when you were happy, sad, celebrating life, or PMS-ing. Here’s to the Chocolate Chip and all it’s chocolatey glory!
So I’ve been thinking about my blog lately and what I want to write about and how I want to express myself here in this space. I took a break because I wasn’t inspired to post anything and I’ve written before how I don’t force creativity as that has drained me once before in life. I’ve used my blog as a way to write about whatever was on my mind or whatever may be going on in my life as a creative outlet (even if no one reads it or cares) making this blog a random experience. You just never know what you’re going to get!
I think in order to keep things fun for me I need to keep that randomness. But I also want to take blogging ever so slightly seriously and actually get on a posting schedule. I’d like to have a goal to bring in more readers and further down the road have a branding of the blog. But that requires a little more effort on my part, which means putting out content! There’s a little bit of a learning curve that comes with taking blogging seriously and I’m definitely still learning, especially what quality content is all about.
If I’m being totally honest, I definitely post for myself first with what I want to share of my life or whatever may be floating in my head that I want to post about. But I’m wondering if there are any regular readers out there that wouldn’t mind seeing something a little more streamlined?
I’ve tried to take mental notes from my favorite bloggers and it seems I’m attracted to those who share pieces of their lives (“lifestyle” bloggers, I suppose) with posts filled with pictures to help tell a story, and some other fun random posts peppered in there about food, fashion, or products. They also post several times a week.
I’ve decided to attempt a blog posting schedule (even buying a planner to help keep track. These days, you don’t have to twist my arm to buy or need a planner. It’s become a sickness!). So check back here every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and maybe the occasional Saturday.
Wish me luck and I hope to see you back!
