2012 blogging plans

This past semester has been a rather slow blogging one for me, but, more troubling, I’ve also done relatively little writing of any kind. As I considered some of my desires and goals for the coming year, I realized that this blog deserves a bit more attention, but I also needed some kind of focus for it. I know, I know, I’ve tried focus here any number of times and it never seems to stick for very long. Well, if it doesn’t this time, it doesn’t. Nobody loses. That said, I do plan on posting here every (or most) weekdays. However, I’m returning to an attempt I made a while ago: I’m going to post positive things. No politics, and no oh-gosh-but-the-world-is-so-very-fucked-up. I hope to spend the bulk of this coming year sharing joyful moments, music and videos that make me smile, photos that speak to the beauty around us, and even simple, short affirmations of something good that I am looking forward to or that happened to me. This isn’t about comedy or easy fun, though I may very well post things that are just funny, but more an attempt to share things that reflect the many and varied positive creations and attributes of our species.

So, yeah, that is the blogging plan for LtL in 2012. Hope you’ll join me.

Oh, and also, I’ve got a new theme. What do you think? If you have any troubles with it, let me know.

On this day..

One thought on “2012 blogging plans

  1. My personal opinion: write about whatever tickles your fancy at the moment. Unless you are really trying to make a mark in the blogosphere and blog about a specific topic (and finding the niche is about a gazillion to one), write about what makes you laugh, cry, or just surprises you. I don’t think you need to have a theme or specific genre in order to write. Writing is about writing and if you want to write, then you should write. If people want specific topics, they click on your tags and categories. I think you will find a theme over time if you just write for the love of writing.

    Just my two cents’ worth…and as always, you get what you pay for 🙂
