Identity


This past few days I have been pondering over this blog's 'identity'. I've been wandering about why I blog and what I feel it's all about. As I've read other people's blogs I've noticed that most of them have a definite 'identity' - blogs that are 'crafty' blogs, 'scrapbooking' blogs, 'thrifting' blogs, 'lds' blogs, 'family' blogs, etc. Should mine be general ramblings (as they usually are) or should it be more specific. And why do I blog?? Well I guess I mainly blog because I find it difficult to write a paper journal and so this kind of fulfils the criteria of writing a journal, somewhat! I also blog to keep contact with distant friends - to allow them to see how I'm getting on, what I'm doing, etc, since I'm useless at sending emails. There are so many sides to my life - yes, I'm LDS, I love crafts and being creative, I love a bargain, love being a SAHM, etc. I guess I don't want to be defined by just one element of my 'identity'. So I guess what I'm saying is that this blog will continue to be what is has been so far - a hodge podge of 'stuff'! If anyone reading has any thoughts on this, please comment :)

Kind of like my blog - photography, crafting, decorating, family stuff, quotes, random ramblings. My reasons for keeping my blog are the same as yours - keeping in touch, journaling and just a place to put my thoughts out. Keep it up if it makes you happy!

I love blogs because they are hodge podges of stuff. It's always interesting to see a mix of stuff - keep it up!

Happy Easter! Have fun with your boys on their weeks off.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I agree with you...my blog is just me. All sides of me, not just my mommy side, my crafty side, my business side. It is just me and I love it. When I go back in the blog, it is like seeing my life flash before my life. Pretty cool.

I think that's completely ok if it's a hodge podge of stuff. I feel like mine's that way too. Let's be honest - life is that way. ;) ha ha I think it's good to question things and make sure they still hold value in our lives. Great post.
