I am sure some if not all of my readers have noticed that I have a hard time with keeping to a consistent theme on my blog. Subjects may include rocketry, fireworks, zombies, guns, gnomes, observations, school, parenting, survival, cats, cars, gadgets, and politics; where is this guy going next? To me these all seem related somehow, but of course they are. They are all related to me.
This may or may not be an issue, but I find myself wondering if this is a problem with people who may stumble upon my blog. Regular readers probably find my all over the place style to be comforting in a rather unconventional way, but what about the random hit? Should I even be concerned?
I sometimes get a bit jealous of other blogs. Blog envy? Consistency and excellent quality are important to any publication, be it online or in written form. I respect that and try to do my best; however, I simply have too many interests to confine myself to one, or even six fields of endeavor. Why this troubles me is at this point un-known, but not un-explored. I sometimes agonize over this silly blog probably more than I should. The question is not one of consistency but of focus. Should I endeavor to restrict my ramblings, or stay as out of focus and random as the last two hundred or so articles I have posted?
The question is of course rhetorical. As Popeye says, “I yam what I yam”, people who try to be what they are not really get my goat. Someday I would like to have a goat so that phrase would be less metaphorical. ‘Crazed ramblings from the flyover’, as Burrowowl puts it, is probably a better description.
I guess my main point is that I will continue to do as I please and to keep my blog envy in check. I was just wondering if anyone else has felt this way.
