What is this blog for now?
What purpose does it serve?
Where do I fit in the BLM community, or do I?
I ask these questions because I'm not sure what to do with this space. I feel more isolated from the BLM community, now that I have less time to blog and comment. I'm not doing research, or actively participating in events, or really much of anything related to stillbirth, miscarriage or infant loss. I don't feel very connected to many of the friends I had originally made here in blog land. And if I'm being honest, I'm not doing much to befriend new bloggers.
I don't necessarily want to be a mommy blog, though that's probably more what I've been doing as of late. I don't do tutorials, or have many projects or art pieces to show either.
I'll be deciding soon what I'm doing here. If I stay, or if I go. I don't fit neatly, in any specific area of the blogging community anymore. I don't want to bail on the BLM community...plus I don't know where I'd head to. But I feel like I'm not relevant or contributing to it anymore.
I feel I'm losing my identity and my community in some ways. For two years I was an obvious BLM. Then we moved. And here, I'm the mom to Simon. I have less time to contribute to my blogging, and to this online community. But I still don't fit neatly into a "normal" box. And I'm not sure that if I did a journal type of blog, that it would be much to follow.
What I do want is to still feel connected. I'm on most of the main social media sites. I'm more consistently on those, which connects me to some of you through a more daily or "real life" scenario. Email me if you want to find me to add me.
I welcome your thoughts.
