new idea's...

okay so for ages i have been trying to think about what i'm trying to do here for a "theme" for this, 'cause everything you read about blogging and why other bloggers are successful is because they have a "theme" or a uniform idea with what they're about. and i see why these are successful because that way you can google "fashion blogs" or "cooking blogs you can come up with there creme de la crop of blogs that talk exclusively and passionately about what the writer is passionate about. and this is great! i myself love the fact that in doing this you can come up with great people like selby or tavi or yvan and julie who are really awesome and articulate about what they do and don't have to worry about swearing or saying something "controversial" (or in yvan and a bit in selby's case, taking photo's of "controversial" things) without having to worry about what the middle man thinks. And this because, there IS no middle man. The whole blogging revolution has appealed to so many people because everyone can go and set up an account for free, write a bit, click "publish" and people like me who write when we have a spare moment or when we have a random thought that inspires us to write about something that we enjoy or had fun doing can get a little rush and at the click of a little button, can feel like a portentous little journalists for a few minutes!
one problem that i've had here, is that i'll be the first to admit that looking over my previous posts, if this blog popped up on my homepage on blogspot, i wouldn't read it! it doesn't have a uniform theme, and i think partly that there isn't any one thing that i'm passionate about, but so many! at the same time, I am envious of Tavi, having the ability to write so well about the fashion she see's and is able to find the most incredible things from the Salvation Army and turn them into these incredible pieces. I like Tavi also love fashion, and though my dad isn't crazy about it, I actually find the industry really interesting, and though i doubt that if i did put my blog under the category of "fashion", i'd be able to write about fashion, not as well as She does, but alright! The problem with this would be that i know and can tell you now that i would half the time think of what i think is a good idea about a post that i could write about, but feel like i couldn't because mine was supposed to be a "fashion" blog.
What made me really happy the other day, was coming across the blog Currently Obsessed With. It made me realize that it doesn't really matter if you don't quite have a theme or a niche that your blog fits into, as long a you write well about what you really care about!
So that's my plan, and maybe in a few months i'll look over it and see some kind of pattern emerging in it and be able to categorize is somewhere other than the abyss of the other teenage blogs in the "miscellaneous" category :P
however for now, i'm content, and i'll see you round xx
