Getting Focused

Sometimes I have trouble focusing... I have so many thoughts running through my head that even I have trouble keeping up with them all!

I'm having one of those moments right now... I'm thinking about my blog and realise that it doesn't really have a focus. When I started my first blog, I used it as an electronic way of getting my 'update letter' out to friends and family, so was quite long and detailed. The entries slowly became more regular and shorter, but the general idea was to keep friends and family up-to-date with our lives.

When I started this new and improved blog, again the idea was to keep everyone updated with our lives. But I've been inspired by other friends' blogs, which can be more anecdotal, thought-provoking etc so I've written a number of entries that weren't so much updating as they were sharing thoughts... which I'm doing at the moment!

I'd love to get your feedback... As a reader of my blog, what are your thoughts on the following:

1.) Should my blog be focused on one thing - i.e. one main theme and if so, what should that theme/focus be?

2.) Or, do you like to see a variety of things (e.g. update on the family/what we've been doing; funny stories/anecdotes; thoughts I'm having/responding to blogs that have got me thinking etc)?

3.) I've become very passionate about cooking and trying new recipes... I'm interested in blogging about it... should I start a new food blog (like my book blog), add entries to this blog, or just not bother at all?

4.) Is there anything else you'd like to see on this blog?

If you would be so kind as to leave a comment below, comment on Facebook or email me your thoughts, I'd absolutely LOVE it!

  1. I like all of the above, being far away from you it's nice to get a little window into what you are up too, but it's also cool to find a new recipe or hear about a cool book you have read. Do whatever you want Janelle...after all it is your blog! :) x
