“writing down your thoughts and feelings to understand them more clearly“
I’ve tried journaling but I either get hung up in my own head or the little squirrel that runs up and around my brain distracts me.
In my mind I’ve looked at blogging as a sort of journal, one that I share with others, not one that I write in for my eyes only. This is my third platform for blogging, the original was blogger, and while I no longer post there if you are inclined you can go back and read all 805 post that go back to May 2008. I think at the time I started the blog it was more business focused but as time went I throw in all kinds of things, from owning a quilt shop, our pets, special occasions, new family members and those that have passed.
2015 rolled around and my quilt shop, Kelly Ann’s Quilting, was selected to be in Quilt Sampler Magazine as a top 10 quilt shop and I needed a website that could handle online sales. I had a website on the Wix platform designed and started blogging there. I closed the shop in 2019 and moved on…sort of…I hand my web-designer do another website on Wix for Neked Sheep Wool and started blogging on that website. Here’s the thing…Wix is a great platform but once you no longer have the business and close that website your blog goes away, so all the writing I was doing goes away. My original blog was tied to Kelly Ann’s Quilting and while I still hold that name close to my heart it was time to move along. This blog, Kelly Ann’s Blog, is not tired to any one thing….I’m kind of all over the map. There are times I post silly stuff and in the future you might see more serious writings because it is after all…ALL ABOUT ME…and while I can still be goofy there are some things that need to be taken seriously and you might see that side of me.
So back to Journaling…while I don’t sit down and write in a journal I do use blogging to sort of journal what’s going on or even sometimes my thoughts.
So I ask you…is blogging like a journal…do you enjoy following blogs?? I’m on the search for a good blog reader, one that I can use to subscribe to blogs and have them all in one place, do you know of one?
I’m still learning a lot about this platform so you may see things change up a bit or they may stay the same…only time will tell.
Thanks for following
