Someone recently told me they had stopped reading my blog because it had changed. That it was light and funny at the beginning but it had become an online journal.
I was dumbfounded. I didn’t think my blog had changed directions at all.
I thought about it for a while (cause that’s all I do, I think and I think and then I think some more).
Then I realized this person had started reading my blog when I moved it to WP. They didn’t know it from its humble Blogger beginnings.
I had blogged plenty about my mental issues during the Blogger days. Then, as I moved the blog to WP, I was hitting a period of my life where I had different things to blog about.
Then, it occurred to me that I had an “About Me” page but not an “About this Blog” one.
Naturally, I immediately created one.
The thing is, this blog is about my life. About my journey through it. Thus I blog about whatever I’m thinking at the moment. Whatever interests me. The things I’m passionate about. About being an immigrant in Canada. The experiences I have on the journey of my life.
So yeah, my blog is definitely an online journal.
That is why it is called Summer Solstice Musings Or The Adventures of the Summer Solstice Girl in the Great White North.
And since I deal with mental illnesses, sometimes my adventures will be serious and sad. But some other times, my adventures will be happy and exciting.
HOWEVER, I do want to find a way to keep this blog a bit more organized. I’ve been looking for a solution and even got my name registered for a website but that didn’t go anywhere.
In any case, now that I’m part of the Canvas family, I figure that most of my musings about mental illness will go in there. Not all, but most.
In summary, my blog – just a myself, is a work in progress. But at least, now people stumbling upon it, can get a better idea of what it is about!
