Don't cha know?

I'm not really sure what I'm doing with this blog. 

I've been reading my blog roll, keeping up with all the wonderful bloggin' ladies existing in the blogosphere, and I suppose I've been feeling a little more inspired to write on this thing. 

The problem:
 I can't seem to find a niche, nor can I narrow down the topics I want to write about.
I also don't know what exactly it is I want from writing on here.

Should I use this blog as a journal? A way to release stress?
Should I use this blog as an inspirational read for others? A way to engage & excite people?
Should I use this blog as a reminder to how great life is?
Or simply all of the above?
Am I in over my head?
Can I really create something so profound?

What I know: 
I want to write about my life and how I balance it in this world of unknowing, and I want to include fun photos (from a not so fancy-shmancy camera).

So any advice from you splendid bloggin' ladies out there would be much appreciated :) 


On another note:
I'm really enjoying my life right now.
I'm also really enjoying eating the Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Clif Bar I just opened.

It has a lot more ingredients than most other food bars I eat. 
Ingredient count: 18 or so. 
On days like today, where I venture out into the world at 6 a.m., and won't see home until around 5 p.m., I need food bars like this here Clif Bar, to sustain me until my next meal in four hours.

I usually eat Larabar food bars, or Kind bars, since they contain minimal ingredients-the closest to nature food is, the better-but they don't really hold me over until mealtime.

Anyway, I suppose I'll just use this blog to speak freely about my random thoughts and opinions until I figure it all out. I can't say how often I'll write (whenever I feel inspired?), but I'll do my best to make it worthwhile.

You tell me. 
How often should a blogger blog?

  1. my blog is so random; I don't feel like I have direction ever. I've also thought about this a lot. and everyone answers "as often as you feel like" or "whatever makes you happy" but it's obvious that posting every day is different in the blog circuit from twice a day or from twice a month. I have told myself I'll try to do 5 times a week because I know I'm busy and then it's okay if I have some time off too!
    Best,

  2. I know a lot of blogs do well with one 'niche' but I could never really do that with mine. It's always been a burst of whatever the hell I'm thinking and a place to let it out. Write about what excites you and in turn it will be exciting to read. Love your spirit and can't wait to read more from you gorgeous!

  3. Your post sounds like it came straight from my mind. Every question you've noted is one I've asked myself. I've wanted to start my own blog for a couple of years now, but have only recently begun thinking about it more seriously over the past 2-3 months. Right now, I'm completely stuck on the title. Once I get done with that - who knows how long that will take - I'm sure I'll struggle with the content. I've considered finding a niche, as you have, but in all honesty, my thoughts would allow me to write on such a focused area.

    Go with what comes. That's what I'll end up doing. If you have the blog because you want to write, because you have this need to tell your story (whether others want to read it or not), then you should blog. Something tells me that it will find its own way and will feel natural to you.

  4. You should definitely start a blog! And I completely agree with your approach. I'm just gunna do what feels right, and you should do the same. Lemme know what you come up with, and if you need help regarding the title, maybe I can be of assistance. I brainstormed with mom for a couple of hours, and WildYetZenful is what we both ended up liking. She could help you too! :)
