            I'm feeling like I'm at a fork in the road as it pertains to my blog.  It's not like writer's block, cuz lord knows I've got alot to say!  hahaha!  It's just....it's starting to roll a bit, which is awesome, but, am I getting away from the format I started with?  I kinda feel that way.

            In one sense, I feel like I've turned mainstream to a degree, putting in lots of photos and dreaming up varied crafts to do to keep the attention of followers, because now I'm doing the Linky parties...and I love doing them!  That's generating e-mails from other bloggers and non-bloggers, whereupon, I inevitably end up checking out their blogs and some are so fabulous that I end up putting them on my subscribe list and checking my Google Reader every morning.  I've been loving meeting new people and discussing ideas with them through e-mails and everyone is super helpful to us Newbies!  Now, I've only been at this since mid-summer, but it's snowballing and I'm enjoying it so much....not so sure Dan's liking it.  Here's me... "Dan, Dan....someone from Germany joined my Google Friends Connect!".  Here's Dan...."That's nice."  Just kidding.....he's happy for me and helps me at every turn it seems with my revamps, crafts, etc....and best of all....listens to me brainstorm!

            Okay...getting to the point....people are starting to come to my blog and read, not for the articles so much as the projects, I think, and I still want to talk (shock) about life issues and intangibles and the funny thing that happened to me on the way to.....you know what I mean right?

            After much thought about "Which direction should this blog go in?", I've decided that, well, the name of it is "HerBallistic Garden" and I did state at the beginning that I'm rather scatterbrained....which if you really knew me, you'd probably see!  (No comments back from that one please!  Hahaha!)  So, I think I'll just stay "me" and do both!

            One reason is...I can't make up my mind about the whole issue....and another is that I love to read funny stories and also about serious issues in other people's blogs, so why not?

            After this lengthy online counselling session with me, myself and I...the decision has been made by all of us (heehee...oh...and the other two Gemini friends) to keep the crazy mixed up Herballistic Blog just the way it is!  For now....

Have an HerBallistic Day!

I can so relate to what you are saying. Is my blog what I expected it to be? I also feel like I've turned mainstream, trying to keep their attention, posting more often, visiting more often. And I wonder, is this what I expected it to be, what I want it to be? I'm not sure, but I seem to be rolling with it, does that mean that's what I want, not sure. Thanks for stopping by my site, and thanks for this post, it hit home, something I wanted to say, but didn't.
