Hope everyone is having a fantastic day so far. I decided I wanted to write about something that I’m struggling with right now, so that you’ll understand why I’m still not posting very much.
Blogging and social media are fabulous things. You have the ability to connect with people all over the world, share information, find others who share your interests, and potentially help others as well. But when you decide to create an online presence that you want to share with others, there’s a lot to think about. I started this blog to share my personal weight loss and health journey, to discuss living a plant based lifestyle, and to potentially help others in some way. I like the people who follow me, I enjoy the interaction, and I like it when I share things that people say have helped them.
I’m in a lot of communities for the type of blog that Body By Emmy is, and there are so many great ones out there. But, there’s a lot of value that others provide that I’m not sure I ever will provide for you. I know that every blogger is different, and I don’t want to be just like everyone else.
What I’m struggling with is that there’s a lot of other pieces that I’d like to share with you that don’t really fit this health and fitness format that I’ve developed. I guess this sounds like I just have a giant ego and think people should pay attention to me, or care what I have to say. I guess if you decide to put yourself online for others to read, then maybe you do have some ego or desire that those who don’t make that choice have. I’m not going to apologize for it, or analyze it, this is just something I enjoy and want to do.
But, I’m having trouble deciding how to do everything I want, and still provide value. I have another blog that is pretty much dormant right now. It’s called Emmy Caitlin, and it has pretty much been a personal blog before I stopped writing on it. Right now I’m torn on whether or not to use that as a platform to share the other things I’m interested in talking about, and keeping this blog to devote to fitness only. Or, I could combine the two and just turn it into a lifestyle blog where I share it all. I’m leaning toward the second option because I feel like splitting them, is in a sense, splitting me. Basically, I’m just not sure where to go at this point.
For now, they’re going to stay separate and I will try to write on both on a more regular basis. If you’re interested in following my other blog Emmy Caitlin, you can find it here, as well as the Facebook and Twitter for that blog. At some point they may merge, but I will let you know well in advance in case you want to leave either platform. If you have an opinion on this, or think I’m just an egomaniac, let me know!
