I had been thinking - where do I want to go with this blogging stuff? Then I saw that I had 99 posts and thought - well now's as good a time as any to publicly ponder that.
I tell patients & clients that if they need to know where they are before deciding where they want to go.
When I started, I confess - I had no idea what I was doing. None whatsoever. I thought it would be fun to talk about healthy eating and ways to achieve it in real life. Then I realized I talk about that all day and enjoy it, but I want to do something else when I get home.
So ... I took to blogging just about my life. Oddly enough, some people enjoy reading it! Particularly my grandpa and my parents, but other people too. Here & there.
What I want to do now ... is more. Not necessarily to become big-time. But I'd like to expand my scope. I definitely enjoy what I've been doing. It's cheaper than therapy, more fun, and keeps my far-away Nebraska family up-to-date on Florida family fun.
I'd like to make it more of a community effort. Maybe I just want an excuse to collaborate with some like-minded pals. I want to keep the "mom spin" - focus on issues that matter to women, children and families. I'm thinking of featuring everyday people who do awesome things for the greater good; then always bring it back to how everyone can contribute to the cause or incorporate the idea into their lives.
I particularly want to keep the "mom spin" because my personal interest is on my daughter's behalf.
Sure, I've always wanted to help make the world a better place. But now, I want to make it a better place for her. And I want her to see how she can help too.
