This week marks 10 years since I started my first public, somewhat disjointed, totally photograph-free, poorly written blog.
I know, I’m amazed, too.
You’d think that I’d have some pithy, inspirational conclusions gleaned from my experiences along the way, but I don’t.
No, the best that I can tell you is that keeping a personal blog is lots of planning and work, some fun– and a damned good way to find out who is really on your side.
Which, for me, has been enough. So far.
But today I find myself contemplating my blogging future, knowing way too much about how wrong things can go, and trying to decide what to do next.
To wit, here are the questions that have rattled around inside my brain during this auspicious week.
• Do I continue doing the same things here on this blog– keeping it personal and light just like I have been for the last 3 years?
• Do I change this blog into something more opinionated, rather like a newspaper column with an agenda to promote? Or a niche blog devoted to one specific topic? And if so, what would that agenda/niche be?
• Do I start a different, private blog in which I tell more of my story to a select few people who I know will support me? And if so, what does that get me?
• Do I give up on blogging entirely and just walk away from it?
I have no definite answer here.
But I suspect that you, my gentle readers, have suggestions about what I should do next concerning this blog, my blogging career, all things bloggy.
Heaven knows that you always have something to say! And I am grateful for that. 😉
