Anyone who’s been following this blog for at least a year or more might have noticed change is kind of normal around here.
I started off last year with 5 posts a week about motherhood, books, my creative writing, recipes, and odds and ends. I tried to find my niche, but wasn’t satisfied with boxes, so I jumped into the enormous box that is lifestyle blogging. But even that doesn’t feel right.
Then my mid-year break hit and then my family was hit by two deaths and then we had to move by the beginning of December. Keeping up here was hard, so I started posting 3 times a week. I started doing more bookish posts and basically ended posting recipes. I’m bad at meal planning, anyways, and I lack an adventurous family.
This year started with much the same, but with a 6+1 schedule. A few months in and I’m back to 5 posts a week with weekly questions because I’m a Kat and I’m curious; some personal stories, experiences, and memories; adventures in ratio baking; and the ever present motherhood, creative writing, and bookish posts. It’s been a few weeks, and I’m happy. For now.
I admire the bloggers who can consistently post in a niche, who can thrive and be happy with it. I sometimes wish I could do that. But I’m an ever-changing person, and this blog is an extension of me, so it will always reflect that. As a person, I go through phases. I have the same interests, but my interest in them waxes and wanes. Last year, I was all about being a mom. I couldn’t talk about motherhood more. I had to contain myself so this wouldn’t become a mom blog.
Right now, I’m all about being a reader. I can’t stop thinking about books. There are so many bookish posts rattling around my head. I’ll have to try hard to contain myself so this doesn’t become a book blog.
This is all to say I am a person who goes through phases and my blog will always reflect that. Right now I am very bookish. There will be more bookish posts and more book reviews, but I’ll still post about being a mom, my adventures in ratio baking, my creative writing, and some personal essays. Just don’t be surprised if the bulk of my posts take a bookish turn.
Haha…bloggy…dear Brooke, you’re definitely rubbing off on me!
