Blog a Difference

When this blog was just a dream, I fell in love with an idea: blog a difference. Lately I've been wanting to go back to that. You might have noticed my posts about the Strong and Influential Sisterhood. I'd love to to tell you a bit more how this idea came be.

Make Blog a difference

After reading several blogs, I felt troubled and anxious. Then I ended up back to my own blog. This feeling doesn't go away. 

Why do I feel this way? What's going on? I love blogging. I love reading blogs. I love meeting new people behind the blogs. But now this whole thing, for some reason, makes me feel uneasy. 

I started to reflect. Here's a part from my notes. (Don't mind the spelling errrrrrors)

I realized what has been bothering me.

1. Propaganda

We bloggers write propaganda. We aim to make people think in a certain way. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but what if the thing we try to make people think is not good - or is meaningless.

In the worst scenario, this is what the blogger tries to make the reader think:

- Have yourself a merry little Christmas life. And you can do that with my tips.
- Think less. Look good.
- You should believe me and think my thoughts are significant, because I am a "big blogger".  

2. The time spent blogging

It takes a lot of time if you want to have a "good" blog. We create content and try to make it pretty. But is the content really worth the effort? Is the time well spent?

3. Was I meant for this?

I believe, I was created for a reason. Is that reason to write about  _____ (ad your own word) stuff on my blog. 

After this reflection I decided, I want to go back to my original idea: blog a difference. That's how the idea of the Strong & Influential Sisterhood started to form in my mind.

My blog mentor:


  1. I love that you're wanting to be so intentional about your blogging! That's really how I feel it should be! :-)

  2. Thank you! I'm trying to do my best ;)


I would love the read your comment, idea, suggestion...
