Over the past two plus years I’ve had a hard time coming to grips with the word “blogger” being used to describe me and the word “blog” to describe my part time passion that is Your Inner Skinny.
I’m not sure why I have such a hesitation with the word blog or term blogger because I’ve actually been blogging for more than eight years. I’ve had a few different blogs that mainly revolved around the ad agency world and at one time I had one that was completely based on inspirational design in everything from everyday life to art to photography to movies, including pornography.
On my previous blogs I use to write daily about my everyday experiences and everyday life. However with YIS, I haven’t been one of those “every day bloggers”, as I call them, that writes about what they ate, what they did and what’s going on in their lives. I’ve mainly only written, or blogged if you will, about key moments in my life or key inspirations and it seems people like it this way.
From time to time I get the urge to sit down and just write about my day and share with you what I did, my workout, what ate and who I met. But then I think, “who the hell cares what I did today”? I wonder if I want to be that kind of blogger, or moreover, do my readers want me to be that kind of blogger? For the most part, my posts have been about my monumental thoughts or experiences for so long, and if I start changing that up, will I lose my readers? I don’t want to lose anyone, because really, YOU GUYS are the reason I have continued to do this for so long.
It also boils down to time. Who has the time to blog every day? I have no idea how people do it. I barely feel like I have the time to blog twice a week.
If I started writing about my day I want make sure the blog stays interesting and I don’t want to force my writing, but I also don’t want to limit myself to only writing the most deep and personal posts like I am now because that’s just mentally draining. It’s a conundrum.
To be honest, I don’t even know why I’m writing about this now. Maybe it’s just because that’s what I’m feeling and it’s my way of sharing.
Jesus, now I’m just rambling… Let’s get to the point, shall we?
What do you think? Do you care about what I ate today? Do you care about my workout? Do you care about if I got pen on my new t-shirt?
What do you want to hear about? What do YOU care about? Do you care at all? Do you just read this because you’re bored?
Again, YOU’RE the reason I do what I do, so help me help you… “HELP ME, HELP YOU”.
