Blog Worthy... ?
Let me start by saying this is a new work in progress, no name yet. I quite like her though, and hope for a good out come...
Now... down to the business of "Blog Worthy-ness" ...
This is where I've let my insecurities take hold lately.
I mean come on ya'll...
there are sooooo many really cool, insightful and interesting blogs out there.
It is easy to blog surf all frickin' day, if one had the time. You find a fav that you love and before you know it ... your following your favs's..... FaV's.
I know we are are all guilty of going to someones awesome blog that leads us to another awesome blog and then down the rabbit hole we go... getting lost and even forgetting where we began!
Interesting to me though.... is that some of my favorite artful bloggers and blog posts are polar opposites of each other. So really whose to say what is blog worthy? What appeals to one, may not to others. And even that can vary depending on one's mood at the time.
Ultimately it's the reader who decides. They decide when they check in on a blog on any given day and then get lost in the authors insight, art, photographs, wit, humor or whatever it may be.
And then there's the actual purpose behind one starting a blog. Or is there? Or does there even have to be?
Since beginning this adventure in January, I've found myself really close to adding more pictures and posts. But my inner critic keeps asking me "is this even blog worthy?" How dorkey is that!
I've been trying waaay too hard to determine what "direction" I should take with my blog. Who the hell say's there has to even BE a direction...the blog police? Geeze, how goofy have I been?
Originally, I "planned" on it being mainly art based, with a little life thrown in. But have struggled with this idea since... and found myself over analyzing every thing I considered putting up. The point being, I have wanted to post about little things sometimes, mundane even...nothing earth shattering, or necessarily "deep".
Hense....over thinking and micro-managing this "perfect blog beginning" in the right direction has not helped it at all, only deterred. It's that whole learning curve thing, not only in bloglandia, but about myself as well.
So, in an effort to push aside the darned perfectionist bullsh-t... (I wish this quality carried over to my closet and studio tidiness, no such luck, I'm a messy mess plain and simple) I hereby "expel" the the perfectionistic demons. (swig... inside joke, tx trisha!)
I hereby declare, reader beware...
I'm not going for blog worthy. In fact I'm pretty sure I'll be all over the map. I'm gonna stick with me, myself and ajae...no rhyme or reason will be found here. Blog posts may include but are not limited to;
ajaeart, mundane life occurrences, dog stories, tyrants and ramblings, family, music, nature photos and stories,things that make you go hmmmmmm? friends, inside jokes and what have you. And sometimes I do drink and blog :)
Just sayin'... xoxo ajae
