On Blogging & Topics & Time.
In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been struggling to find things to write about on Lemonade Life. My life is pretty boring. Right now, I’m living in a hotel, so there’s absolutely nothing to tell you about when it comes to decorating my home, cooking or any other fun “home ec” kinds of posts because it’s literally impossible to work on anything.
My health and fitness has pretty much gone down the drain. I haven’t worked out, and I’m not eating particularly healthy. I don’t really feel like talking about how bad my health is right now, because that’s not very interesting to read either. It would be the same “owe is me” post and until I figure out a way to change things, it’s going to be very repetative.
As far as diabetes goes, well, I write for a diabetes blog. I kinda don’t want to write about it on my personal blog anymore. That, and I don’t have much to say about it. My last A1c, which was on Monday, was 8.3%. Over a half a percent higher than last time. (Which is bad, for my non-diabetic crowd.) See aforementioned comment about my health and fitness going down the drain.
My work is a diabetes blog, so honestly if you want to find out what I’m working on, go read the blog! It’s also been taking up a lot of time. I don’t usually feel like devoting more hours in the evening to writing when that’s what I spent the first eight to nine hours of the day doing.
The only thing interesting going on is that I’m traveling quite a bit. On the weekends. That’s pretty much the only content I have to share, and that’s just one post a week.
So I think I’m going to slow down the blogging around here. Maybe permanently, maybe not. I thought I could fill up the blog with memes and whatnot, but I’m not sure how interesting those are to read for people. I mean, every once in awhile is good, or once or twice a week. But I usually get the fewest comments on meme posts, and so I’m not sure if that means that people aren’t reading them or people are bored by them or what.
I’ve also noticed I’m not as active on Twitter as I used to be. I guess I just don’t feel like I’m doing or saying anything interesting right now. Do you ever feel like that? Where you’re basically boring yourself, so why torture other people with the same hum-drum?
My goal with this blog has always been to share my life. It’s a life blog, pure and simple. And sometimes, you know, you don’t want to share your life. Sometimes there just isn’t as much to share. Life ebbs and flows. Sometimes there’s a whole lot of really cool stuff going on, like with planning a wedding and losing weight.
But I have also been thinking that I need to blog more about just general topics than necessarily things that are going on in my life, but also observations about things that other people are doing. Maybe write about why I’m not doing certain things. Or things that I’d like to do.
My blog has morphed and changed over the years and I certainly see no reason to keep it a static object. I am not a static object. So one would think this blog would change with me.
