To Blog or Not to Blog

Smithers makes some really good points. And it’s something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately in regards to hotpinkevil.

I started this blog shortly after moving to Chicago as 1) a way to keep a journal of my life as it was changing and transitioning and doing new things in a new location, and 2) to keep in touch with family and friends back home.

After returning to Minneapolis, my life has gotten much busier and my lack of blogging reflects that. My regularly busy schedule, although different, has resumed and I am no longer able to blog from work. I think of some really good non-boring (at least to me) things to blog about, but by the time I sit down with the time, I have forgotten it all and write something kind of uninteresting. And if it’s uninteresting to me, it’s got to be for you too.

So what to do now? Do I quit blogging? Or do I figure out how to improve it?

The two reasons I originally started blogging have not disappeared. I still have a life that I want to record and maybe you still care to read and comment on what I’ve been journaling. So I’ve decided to improve it.

This is how: whenever I think of something I want to blog about, I’m going to jot down the idea. If I think of something that I want to blog about and I have the time, I will blog then. Otherwise, I will write a series of posts about once a week when I find the time to sit down and do so. I will post these blogs individually over the course of the week (and include the original date) as to not inundate you with several posts at once. This will keep us both up to date and hopefully more entertained. Quantity and quality.

Feel free to read hotpinkevil more often, and comment, comment, comment! I’m off to start blogging!

The MS Paint happened because "someone" broke the camera. But I'll keep it up.
