I’m not a mummy blogger, but I blog about being a mum. I’m not a foodie blogger, but I blog recipes. I’m not a news blogger, but I blog about news and current events. I’m not a religion blogger, but I blog about religion and Atheism. I’m not a linguistics or language blogger, but I blog about people’s poor use of English.
Maybe I’m really all of those things.
One thing you’ll – hopefully – never see me do is participate in things like ‘Wordless Wednesday’ or ‘Things I know Thursday’.
I really don’t believe in applying labels to myself and defining myself in such a limiting way. I don’t believe in being constrained to a topic. This is my blog, and I’ll be who I am. I’ll blog what I want to on any given day.
Yes, I’m a mother. Yes, I cook gluten free stuff. Yes, I have opinions on news. Yes, I’m an Atheist. Yes, I can spell. I don’t see why all of these things shouldn’t come through in my personal blog.
How do you feel about applying labels to yourself or your blog? Do you find it limiting? Or do you blog only for a specific purpose or message?
