Back in November of 2012 I started my blog on a whim, really trying to get some exposure for my Etsy shop. My intent was to feature my designs and maybe some HOW TO, instructions. Well something really crazy happened along the way. I found I loved to write. So instead of featuring my items I was writing about my life and then one day in February, I fell upon the A to Z Challenge.
I immediately asked myself:
Can I really find something to write about everyday?
Where do I fit in to the writing world?
So, my quest to fit in returned but I decided to throw caution to the wind and just go for it. There were suggestions on the A to Z blog to pick a theme which would make it easier but I could not really think of something that I was interested in to write about everyday. So I just decided to wing it. I started making an A to Z list of topics that would correspond to the letter hoping that would help my thought processing going forward. I even wrote a few ahead of time, thinking this would give me a good head start. At first it did help but in the end, as is my way, I just blogged about what just came to mind a few days before or sometimes the day before. It certainly was brain taxing at times. Midway through I was ready to throw in the towel but I just kept going and was happy and proud to finish. I even started an everyday May challenge but by day twenty I got blog block and decided that I had, had it.
I totally enjoyed visiting others like PoketheRock and Pigeonhousehandmade but as I visited other blogs the burning question for me was still where do I fit in? I am certainly not an author or want to be one. I am a crafter but I love to also write so I really do not fit in there. I love home decor and like to sometime display my home improvements but I am really not part of that group. I have grown children so I am way past how to keep your children busy during summer vacation blogs.
So the question returns Where do I fit in?
Still really not sure but I am having fun writing, meeting new people and learning lots of new things along the way.
