Having a blog has always plagued me. Even though I’ve had this one for a couple of years now, I still don’t completely understand. These questions have always been on my mind every time my finger hits a key: What do I write about? What do I let strangers read about me? What kind of knowledge do I provide them with without being sued? Do I write about life? Do I write about my love for cooking? Do I write about my sick parents? Do I write about my personal struggles with anxiety, should I even tell you I have anxiety? Do I write about how hard it is being an only child? Do I write about gluten free, organic and my favorite person Jillian Michaels?
I don’t know, what do I write about?
And while I’ve changed the direction of this blog several times, I can’t understand who I am helping. Am I helping you? Am I helping myself? Is a blog not the purpose to maybe help someone? Or is it just an output of misguided energy (in a good way)?
Should I help you see the light on nutrition even though I have no certification or schooling to do so? Should I help you find simple workouts for those that can’t do too much strenuous activity? Should I share with you free resources?
I find that most people in the blog world connect with other bloggers and share on each others posts, and if not but most of the time piggybacking on what the other has to say. Is this what I should do? Is the purpose of a blog defined somewhere? That would be really helpful.
I haven’t written any books. I don’t have my Ph.D. I think my 30 before 30 list is really awesome. But that’s about it. I’ve gotten into a really bad habit of watching tv for hours upon hours when I get home because I’m finding more of a release in laughter than sweating my butt off working out. I’ve already got facebook, pinterest, and email. Are those not outputs of energy? I guess I don’t really understand.
