For 18 months, from October 2011, I was an Emma’s Diary blogger.
I really enjoyed it. You might think that blogging here pretty much daily and trying to write tech stuff regularly at Tech Solved that I’d have enough writing to do, but it appears you’d be wrong. I loved having a space where the focus was on the pregnancy and then the one child. Here he’s one of many, but there he was my focus, and while some times in the run up to the actual post I wondered what I would write about, it turned out it was always easy to do.
But all good things must come to an end, and with one thing and another, I’m no longer writing there.
And I’m sad about it.
It was good to be part of a team blog. I loved the event we got to do, and have made good friends through it. I’m sure we’ll stay in touch, but it won’t be the same.
I am determined though, that I’m going to keep a special place here for Tigerboy. And more than that, I’m going to make a special place for each of the others. So maybe not every couple of weeks, but regularly each of the children will get a post focused on them. With four children, if I did one post a week, that would mean they’d each get twelve in the year – that would work, wouldn’t it? I’ll have to talk to the older ones about what it’s OK to blog about them – as they’ve got older, I’ve pulled back from their lives, which is part of why the blog is so marvellously eclectic these days.
But that’s OK, isn’t it? Eclectic is good. There’s no real reason to limit yourself to a particular niche, unless you’d like to make a living, or win awards.
I guess I’ll have to make a living a different way. (Hint, we do blog stuff. Over at Colneis. We can do you a blog for business, or help you migrate off wordpress.com or do whatever it is blog like that you need. We’ve got a fair bit of experience of this stuff between us.)
And yes, it means the blog is changing focus yet again. You’re used to that now though, aren’t you?
