Every year I think about the New Year’s Resolutions I want to make. They are almost always in the same vein as most peoples’: lose weight, exercise, break bad habits etc…I commit to each resolution with vigor and, as I’m sure many people have experienced, by the end of January my enthusiasm is waning, by Valentine’s day the resolutions are all but forgotten.
This year, I thought I would try for one that I could perhaps realistically follow through with. It’s simple really, I’m resolving to revive this dusty old blog. At this time I am leaving some pretty broad parameters for revival: I am committing to blogging at least twice a month. Now that The Kiddo is old enough to play on his own for brief periods and he has decided that upstairs is his favorite place to play (and upstairs is where my computer resides), this goal should be an attainable one. The Hubby has found me this wonderful new theme for said blog and I feel that he thus deserves to see his wife use it from time to time.
I don’t know where this new blog may lead…I cannot promise that my posts will always be about knitting or will contain photos (which to me are the lifeblood of an interesting blog), or that this new blog won’t be continually saturated with anecdotes about my child and parenthood that will be interesting to no one but me, but it’s my blog, I can do with it what I choose! I have written blog posts so often in the last year and a half, always imagining some distant reader perusing those words and becoming inspired or at least mildly interested, enough to come back and read the next post. Now I think I will try to focus on writing for me. It’s what’s most important anyway. Should someone else decide to read this, then all the better. I hope it will be enjoyable to anyone who would devote their time to it.
