Here I Go Again

I don’t know if I can’t find the time to blog or I just don’t want to blog anymore. No, I want to blog. Is it a motivation thing? A time-thing? Not being inspired thing? Have nothing to say-thing? I don’t know but here I go again….

Yep, I am thinking of starting A NEW BLOG, AGAIN. But why? Why would I start a new blog when I have this one? Maybe because this blog has run its course and the voice is gone? It has served its purpose and now it is time to start anew?

My problem is this, I don’t know what kind of blog I want. I don’t know what I want to convey or say or put out there. A personal lifestyle blog for sure but what do I have to offer? THAT is the big question that I can NEVER SEEM TO ANSWER. It drives me up the freakin’ wall.

I do have things to say but it is so sporadic and varied and off the cuff that I can’t seem to “brand” myself right. LOL Really Carol? “Brand yourself”? Well, it seems to be what all the cool kids are doing. But why do I want to be like the cool kids? Because they are getting the attention, that’s why.

Just stop it. I recently read another blog that said exactly how I felt. Quite frankly, she has inspired me to go back to my roots and write a blog that is what it used to be back in the “olden days” – a real blog where it was just about journaling online about your thoughts and opinions and not what it is today where everyone has to be an expert on something.

  1. It’s like you’re in my head. I keep toying with the idea of a new blog.

    I enjoyed blogging when it was mostly about journaling and being part of a community. It all went downhill when it became a contest to see who could get the most traffic and since controversy generates traffic blogging was taken over by flame wars. And then monetization came along hence the need for branding.

    See, I’m talking myself out of it all over again.
