What do I do.....

Being fashionably late has always been a trademark of mine.  So it's only appropriate that I jump on the "Blog Everyday in May" challenge with a mere 11 days left in the month. 

Blogging for me lately has become stressful. I've been beating myself up almost everyday for my lack of enthusiasm about sitting down & putting pen on paper typing up a post. 
I always vowed to myself that I would NOT force myself to become a blogger that I am not. 

Let me explain.

I love to talk clothes, I love to look at clothes, I love to buy clothes.  I love everything about fashion.  But bringing that to my blog?  Just not my gig. 

I love food.  I love to cook food, I love to savor food, I love to stuff my face with food.  But again, just not something I'm interested in writing about.

I've been struggling lately to figure out what exactly my blogging "style" is.  I mean, what the hell do I actually write about? 

When I mull thru the last year or so's posts, It occurred to me how different I am now than when I started this journey to become a blogger. The content was light.   I tried too hard to be funny. I cussed way too much.  But most of all, my posts weren't purposeful.

Purposeful. 

That's what I want my blogging "style" to be. 

When I write, I write for myself but if I'm being totally honest, I also write for you. I want my readers to enjoy what I have to say, and I'm hopeful you do. 

I've missed you all these past few months.  I know I haven't been the best reader & I can feel that distance growing in some of the relationships I've formed over this past year.  And that makes me sad.

I don't know where this blog will go or for how long, but for now, I'm here.

Phew.

That felt good.

Moving on.

Thanks to Jenni, I felt inspired to take on a few of her ideas for the blog everyday in May challenge.
 
 
I'm sure this will take me well into June & hey even July.
Don't judge me.
 
Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question,
'what do you do'?


I find fun in the ordinary.
 
I'm a fun finder.
 
I am a firm believer that wine can make just about any task enjoyable.  So, bring on the vino.
Have you ever tried cleaning your house while enjoying a bottle glass of wine?
No?
Try it.
 
Cleaning your toilet will become fun.
 
I enjoy getting dirty sometimes.  I think it's fun to dig out weeds & create a garden. 
I think it's fun to run so hard that I think I'm dying.
I think it's fun to pull fire alarms.  Until you get caught.
I think it's fun to sit on the patio with Jon, on a Tuesday evening, doing nothing.
Fun is falling asleep with Belle on the couch on a Sunday afternoon.
Playing hide & seek with my nephews? 
Now that's super frickin' fun.
 
Life is fucking beautiful, and if you think otherwise,
slap yourself in the face & change your attitude.
 
Become a fun finder.
 
And thank me later.

It's not fun if you have to force yourself to sit and write a post! Life happens, and sometimes you just need to take a break.

I still love you! <3

I really like this! I was struggling with the same thing. Am I a "mom" blogger now? Nail Polish? Am I "varied" enough? Am I POSTING enough? I mean some weeks I have one post- my bump update. But I figure if I don't have something purposeful to post- like you said- then why do it? Love that we are on the same wavelength. Get out of my head, woman. And ps I love all your posts so you can do no wrong for me!
