As a person, asking me why I blog is sort of like asking me why I have skin. Blogging is a huge part of me because journaling is such a huge part of me because writing is such a tremendous part of me. Do we see a pattern here? I both do and do not keep a personal blog. When I write about personal feelings and bad days and upcoming events, and I record historical happenings, I tend to do all that in a hardbound journal where I can doodle, and while away the hours without paying much attention. When I blog, it’s usually with a purpose, so even my personal blog – which is all about living with Fibromyalgia – has a purpose.
If you’re asking me why I’m *here* – why *this* blog – why *now*? I’m not sure I have an answer to that yet. This is a business blog. I started my business accidentally. It evolved out of all different kinds of things that I’ve explored, which have taken root in my heart. I know that I need a blog, but as a jeweler and artist, I’m not really sure what to *do* with it. Right now, it has no focus.
If I were a materials supplier, my blog could be full of featured products and tutorials, but as an artist, I don’t necessarily want to focus in that direction. I’d really like to use this blog to distinguish my company and products. I’m just not entirely sure how to do that.
