Finding my Blog Voice

I have been thinking a lot lately about finding my blog voice. I feel like I am a bit all over the place and I need to hone in and figure out exactly what I want to do.
Do I want to join the masses of Mummy bloggers, or do I want a crafty diy focus, do I want to be about home decor and renovating, or the myriad of other things that interest me. How do I want to continue to go about this blogging thang.

The bottom line for me is that I want my blog to be encouraging.
To be helpful and to serve some sort of purpose.
Because even though it is about me,  I want it to be  so much more than that, it is about connecting and communicating in a way that heartfelt and honest, because sometimes that can be hard to come by.

I think about what I like in blogs, and why I continue to keep visiting them.
I like blogs that are real, and are not trying to 'impress' anyone.
I like blogs that are pretty and inspiring and have lovely pictures
I like blogs that make me laugh and that I can relate to
I like blogs that make me feel like the writer is a real person.

I want to blog about what I love, and what I am passionate about, rather than blogging about things that I think will get more visits or followers. Because I feel that being genuine and true to myself is important.

I know that a lot more people read my blog that just the people who publicly follow, of course I would love everyone who is a return reader to 'follow', because I am a sticky beak and I want to know who reads my blog. Also because I love comments and communicating with people.

These are my thoughts on my blog.
As a new stay at home Mum I feel I have a bit more time to focus on my blog now, than when I had a million things on my plate with uni and work and everything else.  So, I really want to improve it and keep moving onwards and upwards.

  1. A fantastic post, Karen. You have hit the nail on the head and if that is the direction you want your blog to head I am sure it will be a very popular one. You have given me food for thought. Thank you.

  2. Right now it appears like BlogEngine is the top blogging platform
    out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?
