I was thinking about this last night, and wondered where my blog would be, on this continuum of blog content, ranging from mainly consumerism on the one end, to intimate details of a not-so-private life on the distant other. And I've come to the realization that this blog sits squarely in the middle. Perhaps this is why readership tends to be spotty in these parts, since my blog content is neither overly monotone or witty, nor is my aesthetic sparkly. And I must add that I try my best to keep my private life well, private--for the most part. (I've blogged semi-extensively about these subjects, both here and here.)
Yet, I continue in this blogging endeavor not only for my shop, but also for my own sanity. This blog is, in truth, the only space and place where I creatively write on a regular basis. Furthermore, there is a deeper undertow here, both in content and form, which I thoroughly enjoy exploring. It's an intended depth; an inherent subtlety. (No, I am not blog bashing, I am merely acknowledging the aim of my blog.) It is my hope that this more-than-meets-the-eye demeanor is fully grasped, rather than misunderstood.
