I don't know what to do with you little blog. I think I've used you up for a long time saying sweet nothings in your ear for many years now. From a time when blogging was before Facebooking or Twittering, I adored that I could vent or rehash or just mumble on here for no one (or my mom) to read. It's been fun.
But now I think I want to try something new. This is not a resolution. I don't make resolutions. I make lists of shit to do. I have lots of those. Plenty of sticky notes on my computer reminding me of the gagillion places I want to travel to, eat at, knitting projects I want to get to, and life long dreams I want to accomplish.
So now what? I've thought of a few things. I thought, maybe I'll really truly write that book I've tried writing about 20 times already. Maybe it won't be about my crazy family. Maybe it'll be about my upcoming farming adventures or all the ways you too can save money. Then I thought about doing a more visual blog. On one of our worst vacations, I made it a point to carry a pictorial diary with me. Every day I drew what happened instead of writing it down. I suck at drawing, but for some reason I loved the way they came out. Do I do drawings of an every day freelancer? Would I actually do this? Draw and scan every day? If only I could draw effortlessly on the computer then this would be a no brainer.
And then I thought about abandoning you altogether. We've had some good times, but I started becoming tired of it all. And frankly, I didn't feel like I had much to say that anyone would care about.
So what do I do? Why can't you answer me, blog? Why?!
