I have been on a blogging and cake decorating hiatus lately. Honestly, I’ve been walking a fine line between frustration and confusion for a few weeks now. Frustrated by an extreme cake request and equally frustrated by the argument that followed with the customer. Some people are unreasonable. But, I get it. People do not always understand the amount of work, time and dedication that goes into some projects.
Shortly after the un-cake-tastic customer, I began looking at info on updating my little blog. I really desire to take it to the next level. I want to add some link-up parties, guest posts, contests and much more. So after searching high and low, I stumbled upon an online blogging class. I promptly signed up and waited in anticipation for the class to begin.
After the first class, I learned that it is highly frowned upon (according to this teacher) to blog about more than one point. There was other info covered, but honestly I kept coming back to this one. If you look around my little site, you’ll notice I DO NOT blog about one thing or another. I created this blog initially to post about baking and cake decorating, because that’s what I do for a living. But through blogging, I have learned so much more about myself and what my interests really are.
The fact is, I have many interests! I have many hobbies! I wear a plethora of hats in my daily routine, just like so many other people in this great big world, and I want to share my experiences in hopes of touching someone who is or may be in the same boat as I am. After all, isn’t blogging about more than just sharing one topic you have a passion for? Shouldn’t blogging be about anything, and everything, you want it to be? Sure, I understand the benefits of focusing on one topic. I can also understand how certain situations would require a one-topic blog, but is it really a cardinal sin to cover multiple topics? Well, after my first class, I felt that I had been living a sinful blogging life and was in need of repentance.
I couldn’t get this out of my head. I harped on it for days, and now weeks! It has bothered me so much that I have been hesitant to really post anything! How ridiculous! Then, I realized, it’s been weeks since I last posted so how do I break the ice? It felt impossible to get the blogging ball rolling again.
Over the past few weeks of my blogging sabbatical, I have realized that there really is no “right or wrong” way to blog. It doesn’t matter what some online class told me. I will continue to blog about all things that make my life sweet. And through my little posts, it is my hope that I can bless someone out there surfing around in cyber space. I have also realized some other topics I want to cover, and changes I want to make in life that actually may require a separate site. But who knows. I will not be fearful but will embrace the blogging world with arms wide open.
