Out of curiosity…

So, the other day I mentioned to someone that I have a blog, this blog obviously, and they asked me what kind of blog I had. Was I mommyblogger or a fitness blogger or a funny blogger or what? What’s my schtick?

And, honestly, I don’t know. I write about the kid some, I write about the fitness stuff some, I make myself laugh a fair bit but I don’t know that I’m a “funny blogger” (I can off the top of my head think of about 10 bloggers who are funnier than me).

I guess I haven’t worried too much about categorizing myself because it doesn’t seem to really matter. I’m a small time blogger. I don’t make any money off this blog, I’m not on the path to be the next Dooce or anything like that. I just like to write and I like it when people leave me comments and I like have a record of my life.

That being said, I’m curious about what you, dear gentle reader, like to read about most. Are you charmed or annoyed my yammering about my loin fruit? Does talking about races and training thrill or bore you? Do none of these apply because you just found my blog by searching for mice? (Not kidding about that, by the way, “mice” or “scary mice” are the two most popular searches that lead to this little corner of the internet).

Tell me what you think here:

    I like it all, and that’s how I voted. I like reading blogs that are a slice of life. I guess I’m an eavesdropper at heart – I just like getting a peek of what somebody’s life is like. You’re not just one category and unless you’re selling ads or promoting your book or something, I like the variety.

    @Gretchen, I’m the same way. I like to describe myself as a “freelance anthrolopogist” because I am just so damn nosy/curious about what other people’s lives are like.

    I just like to read, so keep doing what you’re doing. I don’t think there’s a need to fill a specific category on any blog unless you earn money doing it-like Pioneer Woman. I like random ramblings.

    I like it all. Who wants to be categorized anyways? Aren’t we always telling our kids and our students to think outside of the box, be creative and don’t stick to one style or one way of thinking? I say go with what you want and what makes you happy 🙂 I like reading it all and it just shows how versatile your talents are. 🙂
