I seem to have found a manageable blogging rhythm, with a nearly-consistent weekly list of links, with book reports showing up whenever I
finish a book finally write a hiaku about each finished book, and with photo posts whenever the mood strikes.
Oddly, and accurately representing my life, once I find a manageable rhythm, I tend to get completely bored. It’s like I’m so used to fighting for balance, I don’t know what to do in those rare moments when it appears.
So, in that light, here are a few Blogging Resolutions for the coming year:
1. More stories about sewing and quilting.
-Considering the upcoming quilt show and the newly-created tumblr, this will happen quite seamlessly. (Unintended pun.)
-I’ve directly inspired two friends to pick up quilting, and would love to increase that number!
2. Start some conversations about natural beauty products.
-Confession: I’ve been shampoo-free for 3 or 4 years (wow – I didn’t realize it’s been that long), and I’ve been moving toward a full arsenal of clean/organic/vegan skincare for the past 2 years.
-There has been a LOT of trial and error, and it’s still a definite work in progress, but I probably have some information to share, and could benefit from your feedback as well.
3. Talk about my double vision.
-It’s tough to talk about it without veering into bitterness or forcing the conversation to a place of false optimism, so this will be a definite learning process for me.
-Particularly, I think it would be good to have a more concrete record of my symptoms and the diagnosis process, and to have a place where others can ask/answer questions with me.
Disclaimer: This is merely a picture of what’s already on my mind, and what I will encourage myself to write about if/when I find spare moments and motivation for blogging. Thankfully, I have no epic blog following or any responsibility to produce content. I will feel no guilt or shame if nothing new happens on the blog in 2013.
