I have a love-hate relationship with my blog.
I love it because it’s an opportunity to reach people, to share information with friends and family, and to expand on stories and issues that are important to me.
I hate it because I can’t entirely decide what it should be. As a journalist, my favorite blogs are those that I create that are informative, deeply sourced, meaningful, thought-provoking, funny, etc. etc.
But I’m also a working mom. And that means I’ve got two full-time jobs. Who’s got time to write, let alone read, shower, or exercise?
I realize I’ve set the bar too high. Who’s reading it anyway? Not even my mother (she would if she knew how to use the internet). So I’m turning over a new leaf. Starting tonight. I love my blog. I’m going to keep it simple. Share insight and interesting, important information. It probably won’t be deeply sourced. And that’s okay. It’s a blog. Not the New York Times.
