In the past week or so I have been doing a lot of thinking about this blog. I feel like I am losing my identity with it, which is kind of funny. In my life I think that both Uncas and I have done a good job of balancing being parents to Eddie and still having time to ourselves (both together and separately). But on this blog, I feel the title these days should be Adventures of Eddie. There doesn't seem to be much balance; I just seem to write about Eddie updates.
I suppose that Eddie is really the more interesting topic these days, and I shouldn't assume that people really care about what I am doing day-to-day. But I did enjoy writing about our life - sort of like a journal. I like looking back and seeing what we did 1, 2, 3, 4 or even 5 years ago. Yes, I really have been blogging for that long, which proves my point - I wanted to do a post about blogging for 5 years and that anniversary came and went in July!
I am trying to figure out how to get back to blogging about the whole family and not just Eddie. I really don't necessarily want to turn this into his blog. One idea I had was to actually stop blogging all together. But I am not sure that I really want to do that. I think part of the big issue is finding the time to blog and I think I somehow feel that I need to have pictures (of Eddie) in every post.
One solution that I did just think of a few minutes ago is to try blogging again every day. I think that would force me to write about something else besides Eddie. While he changes and grows quickly - it's not like he is adding a new skill every single day! And my baking blog is on a hiatus for a while, so I would like to take this time to do some baking on my own and then I can post about it here.
If I do decide to blog daily, I probably won't start until September 1 (and by then, I might forget about this entirely). Until then, I am going to do some serious thinking about whether or not I really want to keep this blog going . . .
