I've been doing some thinking about my blog and why I haven't felt much like posting lately. I haven't come to any solid conclusions, but things I have been considering are 1) who my readers are 2) who I want them to be 3) what I want my blog to be about and 4) new ways to add interest. I have been considering a switch to a more private blog (like livejournal, or friends-only), but I think for now I will keep it here, since most of my readers do not have lj accounts, and I don't want to have a required sign in.
Along with this, I've been thinking about my life -- what I want to get out of life, what I want to contribute, etc. I've been a little down lately, and I'm thinking I need to find more purpose. I don't want to start any volunteer activities right now, because I expect school to be pretty busy this fall, but I'm going to be thinking about what I want to do after I'm done with school. I feel like I need to contribute more.
More mundane stuff: I'm currently listening to a CD Ethan bought for me that I like. It's The Shepard's Dog, by Iron and Wine. It's pretty folky, but I've been getting into more of that lately. He was worried it was too "breathy" for me, because I've complained about John Mayer's singing in the past, but it's nothing like John Mayer. So I like it.
I plan to post some more pictures soon -- I have a fun one from a hike with Fievel, and I also want to show off my garden. My vegetable garden is doing okay this year; I'm glad I started small. I'm not sure the onions I planted are ever going to turn out, but the zucchini is doing okay and the carrots are sprouting. This is the first year I've had a vegetable garden, so I figure it's a learning experience.
So that's it for now. I'll keep thinking, and if I decide to make my blog friends only, I'll let you know. :)
