What should this blog be?

I have been thinking about this a lot lately...about what I should do with this blog.  It doesn't get much traffic.  Believe me, I don't expect it to be as popular at Pioneerwoman or Mckmamma or many of the others I read but more than the occasional passerby would be nice.  (sorry if it sounds like I'm whining).

I'm not really sure why I decided to start a blog.  It wasn't to make money..I didn't even know you could make money off of a blog.  I guess it was to write down all the feelings I had about being a woman, a mother, a wife, an employee...etc...things that I couldn't really say out loud to anyone close to me.   Does that make sense?

But, other than being an on-line there really any reason to continue?

Or maybe I should change the blog up a bit...make it about something...more than just my ramblings.

Sewing?  I don't really do enough and I don't feel especially gifted enough in it to write about it.  There are many other bloggers who are better.

Photography?  Same.....

Fashion?  Believe me...I'm no fashion maven. And honestly, there are too many fashion bloggers out there that I really don't understand at all.

Makeup?  Nope.

Hair?  Hell to the No. I continue to Ramble?

Do I add more pictures?  I read once that a blog needs pictures in order to spark interest.  Is that true?

If anyone is reading this...any suggestions?




  1. How about a scrapbook of your life? A good place to keep track if what your family is doing, how the girls are changing, etc. But I also think just journaling your feelings is good. You should blog for YOU not anyone else.

  2. Hi Kristen,
    I enjoy your writing and you have clever commentary. I think more pictures would be great. With so many blogs and readers jumping from one to the other, picture hold people's attention.
    Hang in there!
