Bloggy Angst

          It's Monday.

                         Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking.

                                              Thinking about this blog.

Whats next? I am beginning to feel a bit antsy. I have more questions than answers. First, what is it that I want for this blog? Whats my goal? Is there a goal? does it have to have a goal?

Holy moley this blog has no flippin' goal!

I mean how the heck am I going to make this a Super Blog and earn tons of money and get a book deal and ......

             *Joanne Hyperventilates*

Pipe dreams Joanne

I blog hop alot and I follow quite a number of blogs; almost each and every one gives something special to it's readers.

And I'm not just talking about cool give-a-ways. There are some that teach crafts. Some are poets and others are great photographers. There are some that I follow that have great recipes. There is one that I follow that gives cool graphics away. That one has over 13,000 followers. There are blogs that teach and open my eyes to the word of God. 

And there I am. What  do I do anyway?

Do I teach?

Do I enlighten?
                       Not really

Do I display my unbelievable creations and or sumptuous recipes?


I am a sort of jack of all trades but master of none.

I have gone back and forth on the subject of adverts on the blog, but the blog is too small for that.

I have gone back and forth on the design of the blog.

But I love green and the layout seems to suit the name well.

I have thought of trying to go with Blog Her or some other cool woman's site, but I really don't know what the H. E. double

                                                                   is wrong with me that I just don't go for it!

I have to face the fact that I hate change. Once I am comfy cozy I want to stay comfy cozy.

So for now It stays the way it might not have all the      

                                            But It's home.


  1. Joanne, you do have something very special, and you don't even know it!!! All these things that you have listed that make others blogs special. But you give us the most important thing of all. A guaranteed smile or a big laugh to start the day!!! That is so important for our mental and physical health, people who laugh the most are healthier!! And then you leave us with stunning beauty and mystery on the weekend. I like everything the way it has been and is, it has gotten to be like visiting an old friend, I know how you will look and I know I will have fun and a good time, and perhaps even some insight, too!

  2. I'm with Ginny on this, I've only started following you, and you make me smile. Your doing a great job. Keep it up.

  3. Joanne - your blog is fantastic the way it is. It is like going home for a visit, sitting down and having a chat. When it is time to go home you still want to linger and when you are gone too long you can't wait to get back. Thanks for giving us that feeling!

  4. Your blog IS unique. I follow a couple of hundred and there is none like it:)

    BTW, I had picked this template for my blog at the beginning, but then clicked immediately to a friend's blog and noticed she had it so I changed mine. It always makes me smile, because if she hadn't had this one, we would've been twins:P

  5. Why does a blog have to have a point or a goal. This is supposed to be fun and a creative outlet. You're doing fine...just roll with it girl.

  6. I look forward to each of your blogs!! Just keep on doing what you are doing!!

  7. Stay true to yourself. Your blog is a reflection of you and if you try to be something else, you'll be unhappy with it!


  8. I agree with everyone else. Your blog always brings a smile to my face. Your blog is unique, and I always enjoy my visit here.

  9. Your blog is you and you are what makes your blog special. And, it is my ten minutes to breathe when I allow myself the time. Thank you for what you do.

  10. Your blog is always clever and entertaining! Keep doing what your doing. Oh, and that picture of the kitten under the dog ear made my day :)

  11. I think we all go through "Bloggy Angst" every once and a while. I go through it about every week or two :-)

    Take care and have a nice day :-)

    BTW, thanks for your recent comment on My Blog :-)

  12. Comfy and cozy is good, and it is a goal, and a sweet place to get encouragement.

  13. Joanne! I love your has sincerity, honesty and truth. I hardly remember a time I didn't come here that you didn't put a smile on my face. I totally hear you though and I feel and do the same thing to myself...but I believe our blogs will evolve, every day we get steps closer and we don't even know it. Perseverance my friend! Hugs!

    Oh geez, I almost forgot. I memed you! Check out my post tonight. ;-)

  14. And a nice home it is! Love hopping over to visit you! I say, if it ain't broke don't fix it. You're doing a great job girl! I can always count on you for a good laugh or two!

  15. Hey, if it isn't broke, don't fix it. That is how the saying goes. Excuse my poor grammar. I like the way you have things just fine. If you decide to change things, you will know when and how, but until then, I think everything is working well.
