When I started, I was a little afraid to tell anyone about this blog. I did tell some and was laughed at a little. One of the things I heard was, "Oh look, she put pictures of food on her blog, she thinks she's Julie from the movie Julie/Julia." And still I write.
I have become bolder in my writing, and more confident in opening myself up to being made fun of. I will not grow as a person if fear of looking silly keeps me from exploring and sharing. So Still I write.
I have just a handful of followers but have had many who are not listed tell me they read this blog most every day. This has given me the confidence to tell others about my blog. Usually the first thing they ask is "What kind of blog is it?" I tell them it is just about how I spend my day being mostly home bound, my thoughts, my hobbies, my chores, etc. They usually get a look on their face like "that's doesn't sound interesting". But I always give them the blog address and still I write.
So I thought I would blog today about what kind of blog this is and why I write it.
This blog is not a promotion of my hometown.
Although I love this quirky little town.
This blog is definitely not a home decor blog. I love reading some everyday. If you look to the right, down where you see "my blog list" you will find several great sites.
But even though I have a nice home, no one will accuse me of decorating it well. Unfortunately.
This blog is not about gardening, urban homesteading, or keeping chickens. I love reading blogs about these things and learn a lot from them all, but I am just learning how to make the most of my property, and even though living sustainably is important to me. Blogging each and every day about it would become tiresome for me.
As before, check out blog list. Some great Urban farms, and chicken farms on the list.
This is not a bento blog, even though I am a big fan of those blogs.
I am not artistic, and have a lot to learn. But I do enjoy taking pictures of LL's lunch from time to time and writing about it.
This is not a cooking blog, or a food blog of any kind. I like to cook and bake. But I am not very good at it. I love to eat and try new things but since my health doesn't allow this, it would be silly to even try to write a food blog.
I do write about cooking, bentos, home decor, becoming more environmentally responsible, and my town. I also write about my faith, family, feelings, and fears. This blog is about living every day to the best of my ability, and discovering who I am and who God wants me to be. Quirkiness and all.
Why? I could live my life and find who God wants me to be without blogging every day and risking looking stupid, or silly. I could. But I am not a journal writer, I don't know how much time I have on this earth. Hopefully many, many years. But the reality is my life may be over sooner than I had hoped. It might be for any of us. For me it is just more of a reality. With that said, and with my thanks to each and every one of you that reads this little blog, I want to really answer why I write this blog. I want my three children, now that they are grown, not to know just me their mom, but also me, Konnie the woman. Flaws and all. I hope someday they will have great stories to tell my grandchildren. So this blog is for Kane, Max and Bailey.
So Still I write:)
