Happy one year anniversary, blog…38 days ago!
As you can see from my neglect to realize the anniversary of my blog, I haven’t been the greatest at maintaining this site. For the past several days, I’ve been debating back and forth whether to keep up with this blog or not. While just recently I’ve begun to get more than two views a day, I’ve had yet to gain actual followers. Is this blog even worth my time? Do I even have the time for it? Why would I continue even though I hardly post? What’s the point???? (These are things one thinks about during the idle days of summer break.)
Many times in my internal struggle to blog or not I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no purpose in continuing. I could spend my time instead reading or socializing. Once school began again who’s to say I’d even have time or want to devote my time to blogging. On the other hand, the thought of pushing myself to create on a daily basis and the rewards that it might bring appeal to me. I want to hone my writing skills and be part of a blogging circle.
That’s why I’ve decided I’m not going to quit. Instead, I’m going take this next year to change the direction of my blog and try something else instead of giving up. I’m allotting myself and this blog ONE MORE YEAR to gain followers and make its way somewhere into a blogging community. And after years of blog-following I’ve noticed one key element that makes a blog so popular: the blogger themselves. Therefore, I’ve decided to turn the focus away from sharing things I love to sharing things about me and my everyday life.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s about to get real personal up in here.
Naomi, 20 years old, spending my summer in my hometown of Louisville, KY. However, 8 1/2 months out of the year I spend my time in Chicago, IL where I attend Columbia College Chicago for Theatre-Acting. My hopes include a lot of improv and starring on a television sitcom. My dream is to be a cast member on Saturday Night Live. It’s actually good timing that I’ve decided to make my blog more personal because this upcoming fall I’LL BE STUDYING AT THE SECOND CITY (! (through Columbia)). Yep, you read that right. Home of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Joan Rivers, John Belushi, Mike Meyers, Dan Akroyd…I could go on forever. In other words, basically everyone you’ve ever seen on Saturday Night Live ever or anyone that makes you laugh so hard you lose about 20 lbs in one sitting. I am beyond excited!
Aside from that piece of information, there’s not much else I can think of to share at the moment. By now you should have an idea of my interests, the blogs I follow, my favorite colors, etc. And don’t worry, I’ll keep creating those kinds of posts in between the rest. Be on the lookout for daily outfits, photo-an-hour posts, the occasional iMovie-made video, and general documentation of my everyday life.
