Just within the last month, I ventured into something pretty abnormal for me. It has been lots of fun and I’m teaching myself a lot but I have been hesitant to share it because I don’t know how. Let me rephrase that: I don’t know where* to share it. GH said, “You should make a blog about it.” Wait, why can’t I make the blog about it?
I love this blog. I love it because there’s no one else doing it. It’s not big, it’s not small, it’s nothing but something to me because it is me. It’s all my ideas, experiences, and voice. I make it a point to make sure you know I’m genuine when I share something with you. I’m not here to waste my time by being somebody else I’m not. I don’t want to waste your time to read inauthentic words either. I really don’t know what type of blog I have other than that Lao blogs are very rare as is, especially with a single author with many identities that I … uh, identify with. Since I kind of already renewed the domain purchase so I got to do something here, amirite?
So, what happens if there’s something that is a separate idea? Will it stick out like a random nub on a niche blog? The new adventure I’m on isn’t necessarily All Laotian, All the Time but it’s still me. It revolves around me being a mother and how to be myself while being a mother. So… I still don’t know.
If I were to make a separate blog:
- Too much time. I’m so lazy. And so tired. Lazy, tired mom.
- (Buying) A domain. I’m already shelling out money for this here WordPress-hosted blog and it’s so little freedom as is.
- A new, fresh start on a specific niche, for once.
If I were to add it on this blog:
- It would kinda, sorta fit with the current content. I’m still that Lao mom/wife/blogger/tweeter/bitch-friend.
- It would add more unique content to my site.
- It would save me time rather than devote to two separate blogs.
- It would still leave me as an Uncategorized Blogger because my content is all over the place.
At this point, I’m really too lazy and poor to devote to an entirely separate blog. Although I really do like the idea of a fresh, new blog to chronicle this new adventure and probably more audience-pleasing versus content-driven. Also, I really want to share with you because it’s been really awkward and funny and awesome all at the same time. Hey! Kinda like this blog here.
To fellow bloggers: When do you consider to start an entire separate blog? What criteria has to be met?
To appreciated readers: What would you consider as the niche for what you read here at TheLaotianCommotion.com? Mommy, cultural, lifestyle?
