I've followed a lot of people on Twitter and their blogs, and have gotten to work looking through recent entries, to get a feel for each blog and the people who comment there. Some bloggers make me laugh, some knock me out with the effort they put into making every inch of their life a beautifully designed thing. Some will probably never get to know me as an individual, some will probably become my friends.
I wonder, where do I want to go with this thing? What look should this blog have, and what should I write about? The thing is - I am not going to fit in, not exactly. I am never going to be able to sustain a blog that is focused strictly on design or crafting. I am going to want to talk about my life and the things that are meaningful to me, the things that crack me up. The things that piss me off. The songs that I can't get out of my head . . . and yes, the things I make and the things other people make that I think are really awesome.
Is that ok? Do I have to make this place really sparkly and covered in hearts and unicorns in order for others to follow along and get to know me? The thing is, I don't think there's anything wrong with hearts and unicorns, and I enjoy getting a glimpse of other people's heart & unicorn-style lives. But that's not me and it's not how I live.
Am *I* going to be enough, just as I am?
