I've been surprised at the comments on my Stranger in this town post. I guess I shouldn't have been. I didn't even realize my post was sad.
Is that a bad sign? My partner at the giveaway has also mentioned that she hopes I am my happy self again soon. And we've never even met in person.
How is it possible to be sad and different and not even notice?
I don't want this blog to be sad and pessimistic. I want my readers to come here refreshed and comforted. I want you to feel like you've come over to my house for (herbal) tea and we're chatting and connecting. That's why I blog. I'd invite you over but my house is a mess.
I've been thinking a lot about where I want this blog to go. Do I want to get insanely popular and get 10-15,000 hits a month so I can review a car seat from Recaro? Is that what matters to me?
Don't get me wrong, free stuff is nice. Really nice. And I love giving all of you free stuff even more.
But that's not what I want this blog to be about. At least not all about that. Of course I want to share with you great products and companies I've found.
But even more I want you to have a glimpse into my soul. I want you to feel like you know me. I want to be your friend.
Does that sound cheesy or what? But I actually mean it. I have friends and family that don't understand blogging. "What do you talk about? Why would people read it? How can you stand that horrible word 'blog'?" And I always find it difficult to come up with an answer.
So I'm asking you......why do you blog or if you don't why do you read blogs?
Now for my important news.......no, we haven't been offered a job. But tonight I will be attempting to change my domain name to be http://themomnerd.com so in case it doesn't automatically forward please update your links to me! And if you can't get on for up to 24 hours that is why.
So until then.....thanks for listening (or reading, you know, whatever)
Caution! Sharp curve ahead...
