It's been a while since I posted, far longer than I like to go without writing something. And I think it's because I've been giving a lot of thought to what I want this blog to be and where I want it to go.
Other bloggers that I read seemed to be really good at making their every day life seem interesting. They appear to be able to turn a mundane day where nothing much is going on into a blog post that's fun, or interesting, or even enlightening to read. I envy their ability to do that because that skill has totally escaped me. I sit at my computer in the afternoon and look back at my day and think, what did I do that was interesting to write about? Well I hung a picture in the living room of my daughter's house. And I went to Walmart and bought a few groceries. And for the life of me all I can think to say about my day is, I hung a picture and went to Walmart, and that doesn't make a very interesting blog post, for me to write, or for anyone to read.
I think the most accurate colloquialism would be, "I don't know how to put lipstick on this pig". Now it's not that my life is a pig, fact is I'm really enjoying my life. so much so that its flying by incredibly fast. I just don't know how to turn a trip to Walmart into a literary adventure. Other RVers describe their life as an adventure but to me my life seems completely ordinary other than living in a house that moves.
I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of being a full-timer and of writing this blog and I think I need to make some changes and maybe do something different with the blog but I don't know what that should be. I know my life isn't going to change overnight and become an exciting adventure every day so maybe I need to look at things differently, or write about something else, or maybe adopt a different writing style.... WHOAAA dude!! did I go to WALMART today or WHAT ??!!!
