I find myself thinking a lot about where we are, and where we have been, and where we are going. The we in this metaphorical story is my family, myself, and this blog. I joked tonight on twitter that 2012 is the year that jodifur ran out of words and in some ways it feels like that. There are times I feel I have nothing left to say.
I have read a lot of the social media predictions for 2012 and where will the mom bloggers go and I was left with a big shrug and a huh? I don't vlog, I don't have a niche. I don't plan on blogging about the Olympics or Politics, I don't even like the Olympics, or appearing on a commercial. I'm not going to junkets. I don't really work with brands (although I was just selected as a Nintendo Ambassador, yeah!). I'm just here, writing, and more and more it seems as if I'm throwing words out into an empty space. If a tree falls in a forest…
I want a redesign (cough, Doug, cough). I want to move to wordpress even though the move to typepad from blogger almost killed me and my marriage. I'd like to find a niche. Fashion? Health? Fitness? I want to be more than a "mom blogger." What? I don't know. I used to write so many places. I miss it.
I feel like every 3 months I circle back here and write posts like these. These meta-blogging what am I still doing here posts? Are you sick of them yet?
I miss the old days when I used to blog uphill in the snow both ways. Before twitter and facebook. When we used to read and comment on people's posts. When there was conversation. In 2012 I'm taking back the comment. I will stop reading blogs through reader and on my phone and READ blogs again and comment. Because I miss the conversation and I'm sure other bloggers do too.
Let's take back the comment. Let's get back to talking to each other.
