This direction...That direction....No direction

As I read the blog of the Lovely Andi-Roo, it made me think….I have no direction for myself as far as this blog is concerned. And then I thought...is that a big deal? Do I need a direction? My answer was NO! No I don’t! The direction is my life! Hence the name….other than the fact I couldn’t think of a name for the blog….maybe that’s too broad, but I don’t really care…but it did get me thinking….and again, ultimately I don’t really care if my blog is random and isn’t specific to say cooking, or arts and crafts or politics or whatever. It’s me and I'm happy with that. I’m not writing this for anyone else really but me anyway so why do I care if I’m focusing on one thing or another!

But don’t get me wrong, it’s great advice for someone who is a writer, which I am not!! I was reading her blog and she mentioned something she read from another persons blog about writing etc...I believe this person was a writer.

I love blogs that do that kind of thing, that are specifically for craft or cooking, but that's just not me. I’m just not a writer in any which way, no sir! AND I'm just not that focused on one thing or another.....I just blab, this is my blab page. I’ll put the happenings of my life and post pictures and recipes and who knows what else! That’s what you’re going to get. If you don't like it....oh well, you don't have to read it!!

One thing I would like to do is figure out a better design for this blog. Which at first I was thinking trying out other blog hosting sites, is that what they are???..i.e. ...I tried out wordpress and didn't like it! First off I wasn't about to pay for it! lol AND they didn't have what i was looking for, so here I am!…ideally I’d like to have my own website that I could set my blog up on. I’ve seen others do that and I really like it...For now, this will do!

We’ll see where this takes me….Where life takes me....Always a work in progress!

  1. LOVE the new photo you've put up here! Beautiful.

    As to direction...I totally agree with you. Blogging is whatever YOU want to do with it. And Wordpress is tricky, so I get it. There are plenty of free websites, but honestly, Blogger works just fine. Good for you, Devin! Oh, and imo we're ALL just "blab this and blabbing that" hahaha!! xoxo

    4. Hehe thanks! I can’t remember what casino that was at, but they had this whole masquerade theme, it was really cool!

      Thanks IK! I will definitely do me and do what I want. That’s what it’s all about in the end!

      You’re right, it seems there are tons of sights for doing this. Wordpress was definitely different for me, I couldn’t quite figure it out, but that’s ok. Like you said, Blogger works just fine!

      Glad I’m not the only one thinking that we are all just blabbin away! cause reality is we are! hehe!! Thanks IK! I feel better :D

  2. Don't get caught up with "your blog has to have a niche" yada yada. It doesn't. You blog for YOU (I suppose?) and only you decide how to blog, and I think this sort of blog about life s the most interesting kind of blog. If I want information on something, or patterns or recipes, I don't look for blogs. As for Blogger vs Wordpress, I think Blogger sucks, but that wordpress.com also sucks. The later is incredibly expensive. Even if I pay for hosting, domain and typekit fonts (and the design for some of my blogs) then it's ALL MINE. I don't think there is a big difference between Blogger and wordpress when it comes to blog features, other than that Blogger can't handle pictures decently... But if you like and are happy with Blogger, of course that's what you should use. It's not like you have to switch to Wordpress because other bloggers say that's the more professional looking blabla.... there are so many gorgeous Blogger designs these days.. you just need to find them. There are so many opinions about blogging these days, but people have forgotten what blogging really is about. Keep on doing what you want to o and enjoy it!

    1. Thank you! You’ve also made me feel much better!

      I’m new to this whole blogging thing and I think you’re right…it seems everyone is trying to be the most popular or whatever and for me that’s just not what this is about. I’m ecstatic that people want to read what I have to say and I love that I can share my life and other stuff with people. It’s a cool thing and it’s a great way to meet new people and share in the lives of others.

      As to the location of the blog I had to laugh about both places sucking! Hehe, which I have to agree with you because it’s very limited in what you can do, but for now it works. I can see how your saying that it would be expensive :/. That’s good to know, I’ll have to research it definitely if I choose to go that route one day. For now I’ll keep on doing what I do. Thanks Susanne!!
