Happy to just be me....

Many many times I've tried to set a specific topic for this blog. At first, it was going to be about motherhood, then being a college student. Then I decided I was going to write about being a journalist. Then I thought I'd cover black celebrities (as if there aren't enough blogs talking about Beyonce and Jay-Z). Then I thought I'd cover magazines. Or food maybe.

I thought I'd have to focus on one particular area to get folks to read. But I realized I can't limit myself like that. I am a mother, a college student, a journalist. I love magazines, but I love to eat too.

So I said, "Forget it!" I'm writing about me. My thoughts, my dreams, my projects, my life. What a great way for people to learn about me. I'm way too crazy to have a simple blog about recipes (no offense to the people who do). I like letting you see all of me, if that means writing about my daughter one day and the newest Giant magazine cover the next, well, then that's what I'm going to do.

I thought my page hits would suffer because I'm not writing about all that's "hot" right now, but they've stayed the same, primarily because I write from the heart.

I'm happy to just be me.

You really are an excellent writer and I enjoy all of the topics you cover. Don't feel like you have to stick to one thing- blogs can always change and evolve with time. Mine certainly has.
