When I started this blog I never hid the fact that it was about my life. I always loved how the Diva, Laura Harms would tell us about her week when I would check in for her weekly challenge. It made the Zentangle portion of her blog so much more personal and relevent for me. It made her challenges about a person and not just about a tile. Plus, her kids are freakin adorable! So when I started my blog I was trying to keep that type of spirit in mind. It was roughly a 50/50 split between Zentangle and me. Once I developed the Zendala Dare the blog became more Zentangle heavy. People were regularly asking about which tangles I used, how to transfer templates and what type of materials I like best. It became obvious that it would be easier to create some reference pages on my blog rather than answer each email individually (although I still gladly answer all emails). Next thing I knew my blog was being referred to as a "great reference", a title I did not expect but was extremely proud of.
What never changed however is that this was a blog about my life. While I may not be the most interesting person in the world, I think that the things I buy, places I travel to, and recipes I try are sometimes interesting. That is why I post about them. I see my life through this blog as part of a bigger community. A community that encompasses lots of creative people, personal struggles, exciting triumphs and tons of information to share. Zentangle is just a small but awesome part of it.
So now you are thinking "why is she telling us all this"? Because I am looking for some honest feedback. I have plans in the near future to include some other non-Zentangle adventures on this blog and I am just wondering if that is something that interests my readers. I usually get a lot of positive comments about my pictures and stories but if that does not interest you, this is your chance to say so. I cannot promise that the direction of this blog will change based on the comments you submit but I may choose to edit my posts a little differently. My personal thought on blog content is that if I don't like it, I just skip it, but hey thats just me.
So let me know in the comments below. Do you like hearing the personal stuff/recipes/pictures etc. or would you prefer that I just post the Zendala Dare and nothing else? I am interested to read your comments and please be honest, I promise not to take it personally.
I hope you all have a wonderful week.
