Lately, I’ve been thinking over my decision to focus my new blog on crossing items off my bucket list. While at the time I had much resolve and a long list of items, I have discovered that many times, those items are easier written than done. And while I would love to spend my days trying something new or going somewhere I have yet to go, I need to face the truth: more times than not, I have neither the money nor the time to do just that.

I truly enjoy writing this blog for the Catholic Herald, and know that I will continue to do so regardless of what topic I choose in the end (of the day!). However, I feel that unless I have an actual, concrete focus in mind, I’m not really doing a service to my readers. 

In my mind, the perfect blog is one that allows its readers to come into the writer’s life and view moments that most everyone experiences. However, the fun thing I’ve discovered is that, while we may all experience these moments at one time or another in our short lives, the way we perceive them and how we handle them can be quite different. And that’s what’s so fun for me. I love learning about other people, because more times than not I end up learning about myself even more.

So, what I would like to ask my readers is, shall I stick with my one focus of crossing items off my bucket list, or shall I pepper my blog with personal experiences? Now that I have gotten married and no longer need to plan a wedding (thank you Lord!!!), is this blog still something that interests you?
