I have been thinking about this blog lately. I think it started in earnest when I had a comment from someone in England (or I assume that’s where they were from) regarding The Cardinal. While I was happy I had someone outside my circle of friends and family read the blog, I was disappointed (horrified?) that they may have read the post from the day before, which was merely about Wendy’s fish sandwiches.
That got me wondering about this blog.
I want to be a real blogger, that people like to read for their humor and insight. There are so many great bloggers out there whose posts are inspiring or educational. I think they’re pretty normal people — but they have this fantastic capacity to use the English language and pinpoint issues so well. People like Simcha Fisher or Jennifer Fulwiler.
I want to quit my day job and just blog. (just kidding, I don’t. Really.)
I used to only blog when I had thoughts about important things, like politics or religion. But that blog got tiring after awhile because I felt like I only went on there to rant.
My favorite blog was my JoaninRome blog. I felt like I actually was blogging for a purpose. But my life now doesn’t quite lend itself to blogging like that. To put it bluntly, my life is no longer that exciting.
So I end up blogging about Wendy’s fish sandwiches.
I think the question comes down to: do I post less frequently, but better, well-written, insightful posts? Or do I post frequent, random, maybe-I’ll-say-something-interesting-but-probably-not posts?
I’m leaning toward the former. We’ll see.
