Lately, I’ve found myself in the middle of an identity crisis of sorts. I started this blog because I’m a hardcore word nerd (which is totally glamorous, if you ask me) and I was looking for an outlet to flex my writing muscles. Yet, in recent weeks, I’ve found myself turning my nose up at some of my own posts way too often. They seem so frivolous and fluffy, as if they’re written by someone on autopilot. And maybe that’s because they are.
I’ll spend an hour finding the perfect shirt and skirt combo and then surround it with writing that is nothing short of bullshit. Yes, I mean it when I say I like a particular outfit. But it’s as if I’ve been sleepwalking through the writing part of my posts. I’ve been throwing superlatives around like rice at a wedding and leaving it at that.
This must change.
There’s honestly no point of continuing with this blog if I’m not doing it right. Spewing out thoughtless sentences and not challenging myself or trying to improve my word nerdery (yeah, you can be a language geek and make up your own words) just feels wrong. I feel like a little bit of a fraud.
So, I’ve decided to switch some things up around here. I’m hoping all the changes will be for the better and I know the general direction I want to move in, but I need your help. I’m curious to know which posts are your favorites. Are there any that stand out? Is there anything you’d like to see that I haven’t been covering? Do you have any constructive criticism that might help a sister out? I’m a big girl, I can take it.
