It’s rainy and gloomy here today, something I wasn’t expecting. (Not that I have any control over the weather.) It’s the kind of weather that makes me want to start a big pot of soup, snuggle up in some flannel pajamas, and nap on the couch. It’s also the kind of weather that makes me pensive. I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog, and whether or not it’s worth it to keep it up. I mean, I’m intermittent with posting, I don’t have any sort of common theme with my posts, and my goal to take over the blog world with my crafty skills STILL had not been achieved.
So, I have some options, I guess. I could try to pick a theme and stick to it, I could give up the blog altogether, or I could keep on keepin’ on. My initial plan with this blog was to send crafty goodness out into the world, but the truth is, I do several different kinds of crafts, so my posts would still be random and theme-less. Also, I have so many projects going on at any one time, it could be months from beginning to end of one project. I could change to an “all about the boys” theme, because believe me, they are a blog unto themselves, but I’d rather be talking TO them than ABOUT them.
Giving up is not usually in my nature, as I’m rather stubborn and persistent. (Although you wouldn’t know it, given the number of random, unfinished projects in my sewing room.) I don’t want to give up on the blog since it’s the only way that a lot of people ever get to see the kids, or my projects, or find out the news in my corner of the world.
Which leaves the keep on keepin’ on option. I’m not terribly opposed to that, I just don’t want to lose any readers because I’m such a flakey blogger. So, here’s my New Year’s blog resolution: Post two entries every week – one crafty (Wednesdays), and one random (Saturdays). Hopefully, I’ll be able to stick (more or less) to it, and you will all have something (more or less) interesting and delightful to read at least two times a week. How’s that grab ya?
