Who Am I Writing For

I sit, looking at a blank screen, and I wonder. What do I write? Is there a special picture I just cannot wait to share? It’s hard sometimes, trying to figure out what to write, though. I mean, come on, what is the point of this writing and blogging thing? Who is really reading this blog?

Then I think to myself, does it really matter? No, I don’t think it does, because I’m not doing this blogging thing for anyone but myself. I just want to release that inner writer that is inside of me. Or I want to share something funny that my kids did.

Sometimes I’ll admit it, I can go on quite the political tirade, but I think I have shown that I can be more than that. I can listen to the other side of the spectrum. I’ve shown that I agree with that side sometimes too. That’s what makes being human so nice.

The title of the post really comes from the song by Katy PerryWho Am I Living For?” Instead of living, it’s a writing issue. I don’t know who I am writing for. Am I writing for myself, or am I writing for someone else to read. I used to think it was all for myself, and something for my kids to have a record of when they’re older, but I was completely honest with myself, I would know that isn’t the truth. When I’m stressing on comments, how am I writing for myself.

In 2013, I am hoping to use this as more than just a drop-off spot for my P365 things. I don’t know exactly what I’ll do with it, but we’ll see. If you have any suggestions, let me know.

Right now, I am going to just go with the flow. A fellow blogger, Tara, of The Spiral Notebook, does these great writing memes, and I’m thinking I might start taking part in them. Not in December because I’m doing some scrapping related projects with that, but with something else. I’m excited about it, that is all I know. I’m excited to start something new. I’m excited at the chance to maybe spread my wings and fly, creatively speaking.

I let the kids play on the playground before school. They had a lot of fun. A LOT of fun.
I think I’m going to have to let them do that more often.

My Girl Scout girls, Daisy level, made bird nests as part of their Journey badge. We also worked on “bird baths” where they dropped droplets in, saying what they were thankful for.
