Have I failed at my bloggy aspiration?

If you read the about me section of my page it indicates that originally I wanted to talk about politics, lgbt rights, feminism... you know all the fun interesting stuff that can really get my panties tied in a knot.

If you've read my blog since I started there may be three blog posts that relate to any of the above topics. Instead, I have blogged about my kids, my wife, the prison, my dad, etc... And so, I am wondering have I failed? Or, has it turned into something I didn't originally think I wanted?

See, the name of my blog describes me almost to a tee. I am the girly girl in the relationship. I am the one who collects pretty purses, sun glasses, shoes and feminine clothes. I am (for anyone who might be a lesbian and understand) typically a pillow princess. Which is not to say that I don't participate in the bedroom, it's just that I am typically not the agressor.

My wife says that is because the bedroom is the only place I feel safe enough to give someone else control over me. She is probably right, she often is. Okay, I realize I am totally off-topic here. Give me a minute.

I love my blog, I love that I feel safe enough to say what I want. I love that I have at least a few readers that seem to enjoy reading my occasionally lame crap.

So dear readers... what do you think? Did I fail, or did my blog morph into a weird lesbian mommy, prison bloggy thing?


  1. Blogs are about self expression. You can stick to an agenda (as I do), but that means you can't just throw out something that is currently bugging you.

    Or you can be flexible and do as you like.

    It's your blog. You get to pick.

  2. Definitely not a failure!! Maybe not what you intended... but you still like doing it, your readers still like reading it, and as long as you feel open to discussing the things you wanted to originally when the time is right, you're good. :)

  3. I think your blog can be whatever the hell you want it to be.

  4. Fail, absolutely not. Do you like blogging about what you are blogging about? (as if that question wasn't in the least bit confusing!)

  5. Ditto, ditto, ditto and ditto. All of the above!

  6. @Everyone- Thank you for all the comments. I have been wondering about this for a while now. I really, really want to talk about healthcare, but while caring for the kids, the dogs, spending time with C and paying attention to my job I just don't have time to do the research. (I know, run-on sentence much??) I will eventually get back to all those interesting bits.

  7. Sometimes, I'll start out thinking I wanted to write about one thing and start out there and end up somewhere completely different. That's okay. Seriously okay.

    Don't limit yourself. You can write about anything you want, love. You're a Becca and that's what we do.

  8. @Aunt Becky, thanks! I do try to be the very best slightly off-kilter Becca I can be! And, thanks for following me!!! :)

  9. Just stumbled on your blog and I know this post is really old, in blog terms, but I'm a believer in writing the stuff that occurs to you. It just makes you more "real" and that's what people want. Keep it up. I'm interested...
