Dirtbag Confessional

I’m still figuring out this whole blogging thing. Trying to find my groove. There’s been a bit of a difference as to what I thought/said I would write about and what my blogging finger has decided to Swype. Yesterday’s post reflected the confusion I feel. I tried to blog both what I felt like writing about and what I felt obligated to post. Couple that with the fact that no amount of editing would allow me to break the last bit into paragraphs, and we get the appearance of severe half-assery.

I originally planned to do one post for weighing in, one post for my weekly menu and goals, and one for the results of the previous week. I may combine two or even all of these into one weekly post. I’m feeling unsure and I haven’t made up my mind.

I notice I get more readers when I write about my weight issues. But I get more enjoyment over writing about whatever the hell I want. Do I want readers or do I want enjoyment? Well, I want both. The problem is, I love writing daily but my weight doesn’t warrant a daily post.

My biggest insecurity lies with my weekly menu. I’m not really sure why I publish it. If I were cooking up something exotic, I could see how that would be of interest. I cook simple things, on a budget, so maybe I will continue to blog my menu but include how much the dinner cost, as that is the most interesting thing about it.

I started this blog with a particular reason in mind. I’m undertaking a personal transformation. I’ll try to be mindful of this as I write. I’m sure I’ll stray sometimes, but I really want to document that journey. More to come later today, in menu form.

    The one thing I enjoy most about your blog (other than your writing style) is that the subject matter is so varied. I have a similar problem with my blog because my main aim is to get more organised, but it’s also a tool to get my thoughts arranged too, and that sometimes means just writing about whatever.

    I think even your more ‘off topic’ posts still fit in with the larger theme of your blog, so you’re hardly alienating anyone!

    • Thank you for the kind words and encouragement. I think I’m going to go ahead and keep the format varied. It’s an excellent sort of therapy for me. Plus I don’t have whatever is necessary to write about one thing only and still keep it fresh. I’ll leave that to the experts.
