To blog or not to blog

After a lot of inner-monologue about my writing ability, my lack of time to write in and update a blog, my OCD-ness about making sure people know exactly what I mean if I’m going to take the time to write out my thoughts…I’ve decided to blog. Already, I’ve read that beginning sentence 5 times (and to be 100% transparent this post has taken almost 2 weeks to be completed). Hopefully, that part of the blogging experience doesn’t happen each time.

The next question is…what should I blog about? A few obvious categories stick out to me: updates about the evers, an occupational therapy corner, the happenings and our involvement at austin new church…these are the biggest areas of my life. I don’t know how intentional people are about the categories and types of blog posts they write or how heavily other people reading a person’s blog draw conclusions about that person as a whole…because in a lot of ways it is just a blog.

The evolution of this blog and my writing abilities intrigues me because the blogging world is not one that I follow but is one that I admire from afar. In the end, it may just be a series of random thoughts over trivial matters and may not be as meaningful or inspiring as I’d like it to be (what do other people hope about their blogs? maybe it really is just a blog).

A lot of people have great stories to tell and tell their stories greatly. I’m currently working on both ends of that statement…So we’ll see.

(insert tag line here) i’ll work on that :)
