In taking a hard look at my blog, I enjoyed having a mixture of posts – recipes, poems, stories, articles…but I wanted more. I wanted artwork from children and adults filling up the blog, along with guest poems and articles. I wanted to have (and give my readers) it all! So the next question was: so where can I get all this additional writing? The answer came to me when I defined what my blog is.
I call this blog and its readership a community of people with the same goal and focus: finding the sunshine in your life in spite of sometimes negative circumstances. Hmmm….a community thrives on its citizens all contributing in their own special way. Oh! Oh! Oh! Our Sunshine community could do that – offer up their own kinds of sunshine to the community. We could be enriching each other’s lives! The extra photos, art, book reviews, stories, poems, articles would fit into that niche in a grand fashion!
If I could write for my blog two weeks out of the month, and write my various projects in the other two weeks, how fantastic would that be?! I had been having a conflict within myself about writing the blog so much I was neglecting the other part of my writing life. Here, my friends, was my answer. If I created a new website with a lot to read, enough to keep people busy for a month, I could do all my writing! AND get my friends involved in a great project, too! :)
