Contemplations

5 06 2009

My poor WordPress needs a theme. Not like a layout theme, but a writing theme.

My primary blog is my LiveJournal. My closely guarded blog contains details of my everyday life, my deep-as-possible-for-me thoughts, pictures, and flat-out revealing details of myself, my family, and my every day life. As you can imagine, my LJ is locked up tighter than a NASA-grade chastity belt. My WP, however, does not allow me to have these nice privacy features. It’s as public as public can get. Therefore, I am reluctant to share anything on this blog that gives away great details of my life.

So, I’ve concluded this blog needs a theme. I need a topic I can keep up with on this blog, much like my 101 in 1001 blog. It’s all about my Mission 101 and nothing else. I update it for my select readers there, and I would like to update my WP on a quasi-regular basis for my readers here. Besides, this is the blog I associate with my Ravelry. Who wants to read my random freak-outs over how LJ wouldn’t let me log in or some other random crap I update on here?

I’ve considered turning this into my yarn crafting blog, but sadly, I don’t crochet enough to warrant a blog. I enjoy crocheting, but I take my sweet time churning out projects. I’m not an obsessive yarn buyer. Now with Wal-Mart no longer selling wool yarn–let alone white wool–I can rule out a yarn dying blog for the foreseeable future. :-/

In the past, I’ve tried blogging about my many pets, including my cats and my goats. Unfortunately, both topics get really boring after a while. You can only talk so much about goat antics and cat frenzies.

So, for now, I shall think on this. My WP needs something so that I’m not neglecting it for weeks on end. I’m open to suggestions, so fire away.

Even if you don’t crochet enough to warrant frequent posting, this could still be a general crafting blog for you. You could talk about issues going on in the crafting world (copyright, safety issues with the government, etc), you could post links to neat projects you come across, different ideas you want to try, yarns that catch your fancy, etc, etc, etc. You can do it!

Hi there,

Blogging is funny. I used to have several different topical blogs, and I didn’t keep up with them very well. So then I just created my current blog and sort of lumped them all together. If I’m feeling crafty, I post a picture. If I cook or garden, I’ll add that too.

Maybe for your WP blog you can choose the not so personal stuff from your LJ, and blog it in both places? Good luck!
