So it seems to me, as an avid reader of blogs big and small, that most of them have a topic. There are a gazillion blogs that are about the family of the writer, of course, but there are blogs about politics, weight loss, home remodeling, books, etc., ad infinitum. I like all those blogs, but I wonder: is it OK to have a blog that’s about anything and everything?
I kinda sorta try to write mostly about Carter, and that probably won’t stop, because he tends to be front-and-center in my life. Anybody with a child with disabilities knows how that goes. But I also want to write about current events, the mess that my extended (and not so extended) family has become, my childhood, my personal struggles with mental illness, my experiences with co-parenting, step-parenting, and blended family life, my dogs, my faith, decorating my house, books, my lost career, and plenty of other things I can’t remember.
So I’m wondering, does anyone have any interest in reading such an unfocused blog? Not that I have many readers now, but when they come, I hope they’ll come again. Bottom line, am I an interesting enough person, and a good enough writer, to keep people coming back?
