Evolution and elimination

As I started blogging (both writing and reading OPB- again, Other People's Blogs) it became very clear to me. I'm supposed to have a theme. My blog is supposed to be ABOUT something. Some of my favorite early blogs were about fashion. I was amazed to find out that people chronicle their clothes, day by day. Shocked. People look good enough to take their picture daily? And share it? Holy mother. I get photographed about once a year, and that needs photo shopped. My first blog I followed was Kasmira. No joke, she photographs daily. And opens herself up to the kudos and criticism of others. Ballsy. Admirable. Then I found Kimberly, and the Slightly Southern gang at Cute on the Cheap. But as time passed I found myself admiring the stylings of other bloggers. Real "life" bloggers. Sharers of wares and witticisms. Purveyors of Pucci and Prada. You name it, I found it. And loved it. Still do. And even though I am aware that my blog should be about something, I don't quite think it has a recurring theme. And at this point, I don't think it will. But I'm OK with that, and I hope you are too. I've shared my house drama, husband drama, kid drama and my life as a momma. I tried the outfit deal, but it's not quite for me. (I lose my camera cords on a regular basis, don't know how to use a self timer on a regular basis and kind of look like hell on a regular basis.) I am, however a big fan of sharing is caring so while I have eliminated myself from the photographing portion of blogging I think I've evolved into accepting that my blog may be a bit like Seinfeld. It's not really about anything. But you know what? I think I'm going to go along with this flow.... Come along for the ride, won't you?

I say write whatever you like. I supposedly have a theme but you know I don't stick to it. I was turned down for membership in a fashion blog group because I wasn't fashion-y enough for them!

I love your Blog KT - please don't change it. I completely can relate though as mine too is just bits and peices of me and my life - is't that what is great about getting to know friends though, just getting to know the bits and peices.

Blogs about nothing are some of my favorite kinds. Keep at it.

And, I say we start a blog group "Those who write about nothing" and if it turns out a member writes about something they get expelled. Ah, power!!

I agree, don't change it! I love reading all of your random topics. It's your blog and you can write what you want! We'll still read it.

I just write about random stuff. There's usually enough drama around here to give me plenty of material.

I love that you are so random! You never know what you're going to get! I wouldn't change a thing.
