Blogging Philosophy

I blog because I’m excited about these things- I love to write and create, but I think if I had to generate content just for the sake of it, it would suck the fun out of it- at least, that was my experience with food blogging.  Stopping to take 1979898 pictures in JUST the right light while the food went cold and I tried to remember if I put two dashes or three of cardamom in my stew made me want to throw myself in a giant Vitamix.  The last thing I want is for blogging to feel like a chore.  When the writing gets stale or feels recycled, it’s just not pleasant for anyone.  

This little corner is about me sharing what I love and what inspires me (or is so craptastic in it’s terribleness that I’m inspired to share).  Also, let’s be honest- being deaf has it’s hilarious moments and I’m inclined to share those.  I find that making fun of the ridiculous things that ensue because of it makes it not such a bad thing.  

If you like what you read, great!  If not, no big deal.  I realize that not everyone will like the way that I write or love the things that j’adore (or my tendency to lapse into a foreign language) and that’s ok.  Feel free to tell me, too.  This world would be more boring than the twelfth sequel of “Saw” if every single person liked the same things- being different (or even weird) is what makes life worth living.  If people want to post about the oatmeal they had for breakfast six straight days in a row, more power to ’em (and kudos for those who have found a way to support themselves with oatmeal photos- my hat’s off to you).  If you see oatmeal photos on this blog, however, please send help.

My life is far from perfect.  I am, as anyone who knows me can attest, not flawless by any means.  But life is supposed to be a little messy-  I hope that I handle it with some iota of grace, but what you see here is what you get.  I hope that I can make you laugh a little, if nothing else!

One thought on “Blogging Philosophy

  1. I feel the exact same way- I always say that you have to write for you first. If all your followers unfollowed you tomorrow, would you still blog? Once it gets to the point where you write for your followers and not yourself, then it’s time to stop.
