Sometimes I like to look back through my old posts, remind me of what inspired me when I started to blog; how often I wrote and what about. I’ve realised how the content of my blogs has changed, and how strange it is for me to have an ‘audience’ in my head when I write. I started just because I wanted to write stuff, and have somewhere to put it! Although I don’t have many followers or commenters most of the time, it’s strange how knowing who reads this can change the way I think about my blog; and how I can feel obliged to post stuff, instead of waiting for ‘inspiration’! Although I love documenting our everyday lives on here I’m hoping to do a little more writing just because, although I also anticipate a lot more photos coming this way soon! I’m working out where my love of images and words intersect, and where they complement each other.
Although I will continue to write about little things in life and where I’m at with everything, Phoebe, and what we’ve been doing, I’m hoping to feel less obliged to document every moment, every day and every good thing. Some lovely times in my life aren’t on here, and that’s ok- it doesn’t mean that my memories of them will spontaneously disappear, just like if I don’t take a photograph of a great moment or view it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen either. I’m currently trying to spend less time on technology related documenting and thought processes, more time with my new notebook, pens and ideas. I’ve got my paints out in the lounge all the time, I’ve been trying to make decisions on what colours to paint canvases for our bedroom wall, [I’m horrendously indecisive at times, it always comes down to too much choice]. I’m daydreaming about a possible novel writing nanowrimo adventure, rather than about what to instagram or anything [though I do love me some instagram!]
So, in short [!] forgive me for silences, things might be changing, or perhaps they will seem the same to you, I don’t know. Tell me your thoughts [comments, twitter, facebook and talking all work!] and we’ll enjoy this space together.
