Randomly Me

"The odd thing about this form of communication is that you're more likely to talk about nothing than something,but i just wanted to say that all of these nothings have meant more to me than so many somethings."

-You've Got Mail

I've blogged about this before, and I've spent a lot of time giving it thought. Most "experts" in the blogging world will tell you that you should pick one general topic for your blog and be an "expert" in that field. For instance, be a healthy living blog, a fashion blog, a mommy blog, a cooking blog, etc. Basically, pick a topic and stick with it.

I love writing, and I enjoy having a spot here at Living Life Without a Net to share my experiences...even if my posts have been few and far between. The truth is, I tried to figure out what kind of blog LLWAN was going to be. I started out this blogging journey inspired by my friend Monika's fitness blog, In Training. I remain inspired by healthy living blogs such as Healthy Tipping Point and It All Changes. These blogs encourage and inspire me to want to have a blog. But what would I blog about? When I tried to sit down and think of one subject to blog about, I just couldn't find that one thing that made me want to devote my entire corner of the blog world to it. So I stopped posting. I thought maybe if I just stopped posting, I would have that Oh Yeah moment when it would all fall into place or I wouldn't care about blogging anymore. This course of action did not work. The more blogs I followed, the more I wished that I was posting, and the more I thought about what to blog about the more I thought about how random my life is.

Some people are able to compartmentalize all of their roles and parts. Me...I'm more like a whirlwind of craziness. I'm usually doing 20 things at once. The lines of who I am and what I do are constantly blurring, and I've finally come to terms with the fact that this blog is the place where they all converge. I'm ok with that. Besides, I'm writing this blog to have fun, not be an expert. And I hope that we will all have fun with it along the way!

My blog resolution for 2012 is to just be myself and to post more (2 days a week to start and we'll see where it goes from there). I hope you'll follow along on my sometimes wacky, rarely boring journey.

I pray that 2012 is a year full of love and blessings for each of you (and by each of you, I mean the 1 person that is subscribed to this blog).
