Blogtopia – From Here to Where

Posted in Editorial, Writers, Writing with tags , , on October 7, 2011 by darkjade68

It’s interesting, though I started my The Written Word Blog some seven weeks ago, I had actually created a Blog on WordPress a bit back. I don’t remember how I happened upon WordPress, but I created a Yankee Blog, something about being a New York Yankee fan, living on the West Coast. I never visited the Forums or anything, or really gave it much focus other than Writing a few Articles that my One Fan liked, lol. Wouldn’t you guess he was also a West Coast Yankee fan.

But here I am many years later, as at this time in my life I’ve decided to try to get myself in the habit of Writing on a daily basis. Because, Writers Write, right? Or so I’ve heard.

But what’s interesting to me is this whole process of starting a Blog with a certain Premise in mind, and how what ends up coming out of you, as well as readers reactions, end up to a degree, potentially anyway, reshaping your Blog.

Originally I just wanted a place where I could Write Write Write, and that’s basically what I’ve been doing. However, I keep noticing how my Focus keeps shifting. As a result what I’ve heard most about my site seems to be the word “Variety”. I find this interesting, as my intention wasn’t to move from one thing to another, but it does seem to be going that way. But where will it go next? At this point I’ve skipped around from Personal Articles about myself, to Poems, a Couple Blog Series, which by the way are very fun to Write. And lately, I’ve been edging more towards Concentrated Writing, if you will. Short Stories, Medium Stories, and potentially Large Stories.

I now find myself curious as to the Evolution of other Bloggers Blogs? What was your Blog initially? Where have they taken you? Where are they now? And where might they go to next?

For instance, I haven’t been around long, but in the time I’ve been here it seems like the Blog Healing Mutti has gone from someone who suffered from Post Partum Depression, to someone who now wants to help others more than anything else. Which is inspiring. And over at Evolution of Insanity, Pete/Ard seems to be shifting a bit, without leaving his roots behind, from Sharing his interesting day to day life, to someone who is truly interested in Exploring Creative Writing.

And so I am left wondering, as I stated above, where have all of your Blogs come from initially, where have they taken you, where are they now, and where do you think they might go?

Interesting stuff in this Blogtopia of ours eh?
