This week, I've been catching up on reading blog posts and listening to various podcasts. I just cannot help but be fascinated by the wide range of topics and ideas that people are passionate about. I mentioned earlier this week that I'm trying to find perhaps a fresh approach to my blog and to blogging. (image credit)
I've never been a person who likes to get into a rut. I like to try to keep things fresh and not get bored. I've never been one that likes to be stereotyped - either in real life or in my blog life. What the heck am I talking about? Who knows sometimes?
Reflecting on some of the conversations that I've had on blogs and e-mails, I keep thinking about how blogging people are in real life. Sure, a person's personality is reflected somewhat in her/his style of writing. But, in thinking about a person's blogging persona - Do people come to expect a certain tone or a certain type of post after reading someone for a while?
Just a bunch of abstract thoughts, I know. I'm in one of those kind of reflective-type mood tonight as I write this. As I place the mirror up to my blogging face, I ask myself what I see? Do I like what I see? I know I have portrayed myself as a certain type of blogging personality - or sorts.
As I'm trying to find my blogging voice again, sometimes I have nights like this when my mind wanders. Is it possible to re-invent your blogging self? Do I want to try to change something about my style - just for the sake of change - just to satisfy my need to not be stereotyped as a certain style? I dunno. Sorry for the randomness, just my thoughts for tonight....
