Figuring out this blog — part 1

by Sara Drawwater in


I’m trying hard not too overthink what I am doing as that’s the only way I can actually hit ‘publish’ everyday.

But inevitably, I've been thinking about what I want this blog to be.

Truth is, although I've had this blog since 2013 (yikes), I've never figured out what I want from it and I have certainly not written consistently.

Important questions about this blog

  • Why am I writing?
  • What is my why? 
  • What are the main topics or common threads?
  • Who should read this blog?
  • Why should people read this?

I don't know the answers quite yet, but having forced myself to write, I'm really trying to figure out the answers.  

Current thoughts on topics for this blog are:

  • Not accepting what happens to you by default
  • Highs and lows of running your own business
  • Balance between living and achieving
  • Lessons from what life throws at me
  • My motherhood journey
  • Appreciation and joy
  • Simplicity
  • Zambia and it's influence on me 

I'm obviously struggling to pick a niche!
