Is it too late to post about resolutions?

I know it’s a little late to be thinking of New Year’s resolutions—most people have pondered this and set their goals much closer to the beginning of January then the end.

But, I need a little more time to process what I am actually willing to do and I find that if I wait a few weeks and kick things around a little, I set more reasonable goals.

All that to say that part of my goals for this year revolve a bit around my blog.  There are a zillion blogs and I have kinda floated around for the last few years, not really knowing what I was doing with mine. 

I think if you read a post, you should get something out of it.  I read several blogs and I get practical info, inspiration,  and sometimes just a laugh.  I started thinking about what people were getting out of my blog, and what I wanted to focus on.  I’ve mostly written humorous posts about our life in the ‘burbs. And, really, there’s only so many of you who might give a click (hahaha!) about that.  I started to get a bit of traffic and realized that I had an obligation as a blogger to provide some value to the eyes hitting my pages.

There are so many things I am interested in at this point in my life that I had to really think about it.  I like writing the funny stuff, but I also spend a lot of my time thinking about other things—social justice, becoming a writer, spiritual stuff, marriage stuff, how a real family can lighten their environmental impact, mom stuff.

Mostly, I have thought about being intentional.  Living a life of intention through all those things I’m interested in.  Since our family life has changed so much in the past few months, it’s given me a chance to think about I really want for us—as a family, as individuals.  What we are meant to do with our lives.

I’d love it if you hung in there with me as I figure some of this out.  {cyber hugs}
