Now feels like a good time to reflect on where things are at, in life and in blogging, and hit the reset button wherever needed. And one of the ways I like to reflect is by geeking out about my blog post categories.
I’ve geeked out about categories before – see here. I really enjoy examining my list of categories from time to time. It helps me to brainstorm what I want to write about, and it helps me to not become overwhelmed by all the different things to write about. (Like, yes, we did eat a delicious home-cooked meal last night – but I don’t really write about food, so I can just enjoy my eggplant parm for what it is.)
I decided to pare down my list of categories a little, and here’s what I came up with:
- Books + Reading.
- Family + Parenting.
- Rhythm + Routine + Rituals.
- Wellness + Recovery.
These are the topics I love to think about and write about.
Often my posts are dictated by what’s happening in my life at a particular moment, and I think that will most likely continue. I would love to have a little more intention to my planning, but with all the responsibilities I’m balancing, I feel blessed if I’m able to steal a little writing time to write about whatever the heck is on my mind.
It does feel nice, though, to have a tight list of ten categories I can look to when I’m writing and planning. It helps me to pay attention to where my thoughts and my words are at any particular moment, and it might help me to have a little more balance in my blogging. MIGHT. All caps. We shall see.
