I started Updatedhomemaker.com less than a mere four months ago. In that time, I have proudly had 592 visits and gained 23 followers. Thank you for following me.
You may have found that my posting has dropped off. I started updated homemaker on my 39th birthday in June with the thought that if I don’t start writing now, I’ll never do it. So I jumped in headfirst – but wasn’t sure what kind of pool I wanted to swim in. I dabbled about finding other bloggers to follow – their blogs, their tweets. I would follow people back when they followed me. Then Andrea Badgley at Butterfly Mind tweeted about Liv Lane‘s ecourse titled How to Build a Blog you Truly Love. I signed up right away.
When I look back on my posts, they are quite scatterbrained. I provided recipes, posted visuals about what I love about summer, examined the role of the homemaker, but most of all talked about BIG topics that not only touch a homemaker, but everyone. Those are the posts I loved to write. They were sometimes agonizing as to how to express my thoughts on them. Many times there was a personal story in the background. However, I wanted my post to be about the root idea underlying the personal story. When I was able to trim it down to what the idea was, it turned into writable, contemplative topic to which people could relate.
So I am shifting my focus to contemplative topics to find a path to follow. My NEW blog is at http://consciouscourse.com ,Thoughtfully Considered Direction through the Avenues of Life. I hope that you will join me over there along my writing journey with a defined focus. I am still in a transitional stage as I switch so much over – from wordpress.com to wordpress.org, new twitter, new facebook page, getting on google plus. The ecourse will be concluding in a few weeks and I will really be rolling as the cold weather and indoor time moves into Minnesota. All the new links are at my new page.
Oh, and I was inspired to no longer remain anonymous, my friends. My name is Laura Fuelleman and I am a writer… and so much more.
Glad to meet you.
