This is me! Trying to work on my webpage which you are undoubtedly looking at going: I HATE IT.
But seriously? These changes are more for me.
Some days I want to write about TV but I don’t because I don’t want this a TV blog. Some days I want to write about exercise but I don’t want to become one of THOSE blogs either. I find that if I write too much about any topic other than home/family, then I’m becoming a topic blog or something. WHY DO I MAKE THIS SO DIFFICULT? So, I thought I’d make it an EVERYTHING blog. If I want to write about Glee songs or how Parenthood made me cry AGAIN, or how Happy Endings and Parks and Recreation are finally filling the sitcom void left in my heart by Friends, I CAN. Because now my web site has SECTIONS. Fancy.
Or if I want to write about running 5 days in a row. Or recipes. Or poop. DON’T MATTER. Somehow, putting my website into CATEGORIES under the heading EVERYTHING liberates me a bit as opposed to the old “Writer, Mother, Photographer” schtick which was probably only accurate for two days.
Now? EVERYTHING. I love it.
The most recent thing I’ve written will still show up on the top of this page in the BIG BOX. (This layout also forces me to use pictures which I sometimes don’t because I’m LAZY.) And then the most recent in the categories below in those boxes.
So…I hope you don’t hate it! Because I think it will free up my brain a bit to know I can write about everything even if it’s not domestic related.
And for one final note: I learned a valuable lesson this week. It’s usually too late to stop juggling things when you start dropping the balls. HOWEVER, once you drop them all? It’s like there’s nothing worse you can do! Yay for letting down everyone instead of just a few people! (If you’re one of those people. SO SORRY. I think I finally learned my limits now. EEK.)
