blogging for all ages? or all THE ages?

So I've just been thinking a lot, about this blog and all that jazz... and here's the thing. I love blogging, I really do. I love having a place to write down my thoughts, and my life, and keep a record of ME. You know, for all posterity and what have you.

I've had this blog for a while now. Quite a while, actually. And my life has changed exponentially throughout the years. It's fun to be able to look back three years ago and see what I was thinking and feeling, and it makes this whole blogging thing feel very worth it. It's amazing to be able to go month by month and see all your little epiphanies, your hard times, your good times, funny stories, dumb stories... everything that has culminated up to today, writing this post. Simply amazing.

But try as I might, I can't help but wonder... does anyone else care? Who is out there reading this? Who is out there clicking on this blog and simply clicking off because to them it's not that great? But who are the people who come back day after day to see if I've written something new? Who are all the anonymous readers out there, not commenting, but having thoughts about what I write nonetheless? I would love to have my blog be more of an interactive space. One where we can share thoughts on life, and how to muddle through it all. Blogs are such a great place to help each other out, form connections and share ideas.

So I guess what I'm wondering is, how can I connect better with all of you out there? What can I do to make this space more inviting? What is it that brings you back?

And further more, I'm wondering if the p.s. thing is a little outdated? I'm wondering if it's time for this blog to grow up?


And if you couldn't tell, comments would be appreciated. :) Come one, come all, let's talk!

p.s. see what i mean about the p.s.?

  2. I love your blog! Probably my very favorite thing about your blog is how honest and real your posts are. When I come to your blog I don't feel the need to punch you in the face cause you're not the cliché blogger that seems to be bombarding the blog world =)

    I think you are a wonderful writer - keep it coming!

  4. I love your blog. I'm kinda a blog lover and spend more time than most teenage girls do on blogger. Your blog is one of the favorites and I also like that I sorta kinda almost know you. That's fun too.

  5. I have had these same thoughts! Can our blogs intertwine sometime? I think we should do that. Guest postings and such? I am thinking this will be a good time.
