I’m stuck. I have five posts saved in draft ranging in length from a title only to almost 700 words that aren’t quite good enough to publish. I haven’t published since the middle week of the June Blogging 101 course, and here we are at the end of week one of the July course.
One of my draft posts my dear husband says is too much of a downer. He might be right. He also commented that he thought my blog was going to be more Liam-centric (Liam is our fifteen-month old son). I had thought so, too, but my father has Alzheimer’s Disease, and I am thinking about that a lot these days, so wanted to write something on it. (That post is still in draft.)
Plus, I’ve been trolling The Commons and reading and reading (and therefore NOT writing), and have come across blogs where people are writing about topics I want to write about, too, like teaching, racism, and young adult literature (not necessarily together, though I CAN imagine a post combining them).
So now I wonder if I have too narrowly defined my blog. Can I make my blog be all things to all people? (Just learned via Google search that this is a Bible reference. Huh.) I don’t mean that literally, of course, but can it be a place where I write about all of these different topics for perhaps completely different audiences?
Well, it certainly can’t be if I don’t actually ever write and publish anything.
