"It's nearly impossible to decide what I want to write about on this blog. Should I talk about my family? music? books? being an author? religion? politics?
If I waited until I knew what my niche market was, I would probably never start a blog at all. At least we can cross out politics. For right now, I'm just going to be random."

The matter was simplified when I joined The Prosers. Here is a link to my first blog post there: Life Begins At The Edge Of Your Comfort Zone. I still think its a pretty great one. It was published at the end of 2011, and I pretty much abandoned this blog after that. But lately, I've been missing the ability to simply talk about my life.
When this blog flourished, I did a blog challenge. I also had a bucket list of things I wanted to do before I turned 40, which I didn't finish, but which I had a fun time attempting and blogging about. Some of those blog posts still get lots of hits, which makes me happy, but it makes me even more happy that I enjoy looking back, the way I look back on a journal.
But I'm still torn...
I figure, when my (unfortunately still future) multitudinous fans come searching for me, they aren't going to be particularly interested in my blog about writing. My favorite blogs are the ones that chronicle the lives of authors, not the ones that give their writing advice.
And when I look back at what I love about this blog, it is the way it served as a journal, and the memories it evokes. Still, it worries me to get too personal on the internet. I've tried hard to keep my kids names and faces off.
