In March 2007, my mom asked me if I would like to start a blog as an extra-credit thing project for school. It sounded like a cool idea, so I started a blog that was mostly themed around movies. As I got older and learned my way around the blogosphere, it became a place where I talked about life, faith, writing, reading, and all kinds of things. It was also place where I made some great friends.
And then in 2010, I started a separate writing blog on Blogger. I ended up preferring the way Blogger worked compared to my other blog host, so I decided to create a new blog for “life stuff.” I maintained the life and writing blogs for a while, but it was getting difficult to balance both, so I decided to start over one more time, this time with Lovely Whatsoevers.
Blogging should be fun—if it feels like a chore or a thing to be checked off the list, consider stepping back from it. If it’s not something you enjoy, then you shouldn’t force yourself to do it. Sometimes that means taking a short break to recharge and figure out what you want to do with your blog.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the disagreement and problems in the blogosphere. But it’s also easy to be nice to each other. :)
