Musings of a 20 Something

This is a rambling post, just to warn you.

I'm twenty six years old. And I don't know what I want to do with my blog.
I really thought I wanted to run my own business, and I do, but that is only a small part of who and what I am.

When I started this blog in 2010 it was merely a way to track my sewing process (I'd never sewn before and wanted to learn and see my progression).
The first cuff I ever made.
At the end of 2012 this blog started to grow as I began to share tutorials and tips and, invariably, pieces of myself. I like sharing art on my blog, but Kitty Adventures is no longer just an art blog. I also enjoy sharing personal stories about my life to encourage others who are going through the same thing, and also to help myself work through problems that come up in my journey. But Kitty Adventures is not a lifestyle blog. Nor is it a fashion blog.

What kind of blog is this? 

I have no idea. It's evolved and changed so much and I love it. I love blogging. And I love all the people and friends I've met and seeing how much I've grown! I'm even writing a basic sewing e-book! I have so many plans and ideas that sometimes there isn't a spare moment in the day!

So I just wanted to say thank you :) To anyone who reads my blog! Thank you! Oh, and thanks mom for letting me have your sewing machine. I wonder if you miss it?

And also, my sewing machine is working again, as of about two hours ago.

I should go hug it.

Wait, I was trying to make a point here. My point is this: my blog is in a constant state of flux. Sometimes I post about sewing, sometimes about marriage, and I really want to start posting about being a christian, or something, and I want to meet more people and...

and figure out the purpose of it all. What's your purpose for blogging? Does there need to be one? Is there something wrong with all of us bloggers that share our personal stories with strangers? Is it okay to cry over a blog post?

And this is precisely why I named my blog "random" so that no one could ever complain about me writing about everything under the sun. :) Nothing wrong with telling the stories of our lives through blogs. People have been writing autobiographies as long as people have been writing.

i sometimes wonder what my blog would be if i didn't have children. i have been online journaling since i was fifteen. i am a mommy blogger now (although i don't really like that title.) but what was i before then? i don't remember!?!

Like you, my blog started off as a sewing and crafting blog. But now it's like this big mess of randomness: sewing, knitting, old movies, books, etc.

Whenever I read blogging advice, it always says something like: Your blog needs to be cohesive. You need to pick something and stick with it. But I can't do that, and I don't think I'll ever be able to. I love blogging, but only when I get to write about *all* the things I love! :)

I think it is odd when blogs just talk about one thing. I feel like they get totally boring and then I never want to read them. So I am happy that every time I go over to your blog I never know what it is going to be.
