The other thing I've read at least twice is that a blog should be very specific in its focus. Well, that's a great idea and one that I should adopt, in all liklihood, but it's one that's caused me quite a lot of consternation because I have no idea what I'm going to write until I sit down at the computer and see the blank page in front of me. I tend to be a bit of a stream-of-consciousness person - have you noticed?
As I've thought about this issue of focusing my blog, I've temporarily concluded (can one conclude something on a temporary basis?) that there are a few things I'd like to talk about on a regular basis:
- parenting moments and challenges
- our adoption process (which hopefully, someday, will turn into more parenting moments and challenges)
- my efforts (successful or not) to home educate our child(ren)
- philosophizing/musing about: life and laughter; dreams (fulfilled and unfulfilled); faith; friendship; purpose...
