I have been thinking alot lately about what I want from my blog and where I see it going!
I started this blog as part of a challenge to take a photo a day for a year. I lasted a few months and then lost interest. Then I started writing about my dating experiences, my kids and just generally everyday life.
It was good to be writing again but I was so clueless about the world of blogging that I would just write and wasnt really to concerned about anything else. That is, until Jeanette became a regular reader. She became my blogging big sister and encouraged me to get my blog out there and noticed. And so with a huge amount of patience from her I registered on Technorati, SA Bloggers and various other websites. I really do feel often that had it not been for her support I wouldnt be where I am today with my blog!
I then joined the Weekly Winners and people actually started commented on my posts. People I didnt know. People who were saying nice things. I was giddy with excitement.
I found a few other weekly memes to take part in aswell. It was fun and the responses were really awesome.
Then I started looking for single parents blogs and found the most amazing women and men I could relate to. And this is where it all changed.
The tone of my blog changed to sharing more about dating, being a single parent and the challenges of having an ex. I was writing and loving it and being acknowledged for it.
I like structure and currently my blog lacks structure – it needs one specific direction. So I have decided to leave all the weekly memes – except for Weekly Winners – I really enjoy that and do love taking photos.
So there you go – my saturday ramblings. I am off now to babysit 3 of the cutest little boys – there will a total of FIVE kids in the house shortly and I am a little nervous. I will be outnumbered! And then Kiara has a party followed by a friends 30th!!
