What is My Blog About?

"What is your blog about?" a friend asked me yesterday, as I was organizing the day's supplies for our preschool class while the children played. Um, hmm. Good question. Anyone know what my blog is about? Anyone help me out, here? How would I give a short answer to this question?

Is it time for me to reflect? I've often wondered if I should be more focused in my blog. The problem is that I'm not focused in my life, and my blog is a slice of my life. It's that part of my life that I feel comfortable (not always real comfortable) sharing with you, my reader.

Oh! Thank you for listening, as I think I just found my definition. My blog is like a column where I share some of the people, events, emotions and resources that are currently a part of my life or that I've just discovered and am excited about. The keyword here for those who know me off-blog is "current". For a little while each day, I'm not time-traveling: living in the past and the future, as some of you know I otherwise tend to do.

When I say I'm not focused in my life, is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. I try to go where God calls me. And maybe sometimes I'm not listening well, or other times maybe I'm hearing things, but at least that's my intention.

So, here's why I haven't been blogging much the past week or two: I've been very busy getting organized with my new preschool class. Okay, it's not brand new, but it was time to spend more time getting better organized. I won't give you a list today of all the other things going on in my life as well, but maybe I'll let you in on them a little at a time in the following days. Just maybe. Much of the time, I don't know what I'm going to blog until I begin.

So, if you're a blogger reading this, would you be able to give a short definition of what your blog is about? And if you're a blog reader, what do you look for in a blog?



P.S. Most blog posts are not articles (despite their length). Articles are revised and rewritten and revised some more. Sometimes with a blog post, I think (as I did this morning): I should cut this down, I should change this; however, duty calls!

Short definition: Catholic Homeschooling and frugal living.

What do you look for in a blog? Passion, love and Christ. :)

Let's see: a blog to help more people get to Heaven. Kind of presumptious of me but I do want to help by posting devotionals, etc.

In a blog I look for short, to the point posts mostly by a person who loves Christ and His Church.

Alexandra and Esther,

Wow, considering what you look for in a blog, I'm honored that you come. :)

Thank you for answering my question and sharing about your blog.

Stina, Thank you for coming to my blog and for sharing about yours. I'm on my way over to meet you at yours. :)

I have been rethinking what I wrote yesterday and I had to come by and change it.

My blog is (hopefully) about serving my God, my family, and my country.

In blogs I read, I look for real people living faith-filled lives that I can learn from and relate too.

You have a very good blog. One of my favorites.

Thank you, Esther. You just "made my day". :)
