I have been reading a lot about blogging, and have stumbled upon a simple enough statement that makes sense on reading it – Every blog should have a mission statement. It, I am told, will help keep us on track towards our goal. This led me to ask: what is my goal? What is Bob’s goal?
I looked at Bob
and smiled. His goals are simple; eat, sleep and be hugged.
Ellie’s are different, as everyone knows, her life revolves around tennis balls, socks, being busy and…. Bob.
Which leaves me. I sat at the keyboard fingers poised struggling to find the elusive mission statement.
Thoughts were flitting through my head working on a treadmill as I struggled with a mission statement.
I started blogging to get me writing, improve my photography skills and have fun. In the past ten years my children have flitted past the ages of 21, so I reasoned, I should have plenty of free time. However, time is being gulped up by many part time volunteering ventures, working part time, dog training for S & R, and all the usual wifely duties. I wonder if I am doing too much flitting and not enough focusing. Trouble is what do I cut out to make time for writing etc? They are all good causes, and worse still – I have fun attempting to do what I can.
So I will start again: My blog is about finding fun while helping others and writing about it because at the end of the day age is simply a number it doesn’t define us neither should it limit us or stop us exploring this incredible world. Phew! It is a mouthful.
Perhaps I should try again?
Does anyone have a simple mission statement?
