It's 3 am & I Wanna Blog Again



Alright can I confess something up front? I'm not  up totally by choice. I didn't really bust out of my warm comfy bed with an intense urge to blog in the middle of the night. As you can see by the tiny arm in my creepy dimly lit picture, I'm up nursing my baby who just felt like it was the right time to get up. But while I was up, instead of being my normal drowsy self, my mind just starting going. 

I was thinking about video ideas. Thinking about what to cook tomorrow. Deciding what kind of workout I'm going to start doing. Wondering what that strange noise was outside. You get the picture. But something I really got stuck on... 
What the heck is happening with my blog? I miss it! 

Kinda like an old friend you haven't touched base with in way too long. Anyway, maybe these nursing sessions might be a good time to check in on here. Think of it as an extension of the "random thoughts" I leave at the bottom of my video description boxes. 

Current thought... what are my viewers really wanting to see? I've been trying extra hard in my video brainstorming sessions to come up with ideas that I haven't seen done a hundred times already. I'm extra pumped about the stuff I'm posting this week. Including something extra fun coming Saturday. But then there's the question of length. Shorter? Longer? I think I need to mix that up. I just feel like I have this huge subscriber base and I want to reach you ALL with things that you want to see... but also not do things just for the sake of views, but because the ideas actually MEAN something to me, you know? 

Well, I'm gonna end on this thought. When in doubt- stay true to yourself and what gives you life as a creator. The joy/passion/interest you exude will attract the people who need your videos. Now I think a certain someone is ready to be put back in the crib! Hope this rough, phone-typed blog isn't too backyard for you!! But if I'm gonna emerge into blog-land again, I'm going to have to keep it uncomplicated... and perhaps something I can pull off in the middle of the night on my phone while nursing 🙈

Love you all!!
