Pour Your Heart Out: What is this space?

Lately, I struggle with this space – what to do with it, what to write, who I am.

What do I share here?

Do I write about my struggles as a mom that works full time outside the home?

Do I share my stories of depression and how I work to overcome it?

Do I share the quick and easy recipes that I have found and love to cook for my family?

Do I write about my love of books and try to promote my other new space to share books with others?

Do I share the trials of someone who is trying to build a freelance career but is unsure if I am best at article writing instead of my true passion – fiction?

Did you know that I am actually really funny in real life?  How do I share that here with my few readers and others that happen to stumble across my blog?

These are all questions I ask myself all the time.  Of course I would love to have readers and lots of comments but I also don’t want to sell myself out.  I probably change my mind every other day on the direction of this blog.

Once upon a time I had a decent readership and then my depression and messed up life got in the way and I quit writing.  I have been working on and off for the past year trying to build it up again – without any consistency.  This is all totally my own fault, but it all boils down to the questions above – Who am I and what is the space?

    Sounds like you are going through some growing pains and that something spetacular will be the result!
    Keep plugging!!! :)

  2. I think you have to decide for yourself what to share. Just be you and spill it onto the screen. xo
