I'm more than a bit scattered so far in tying all of that into broader topics and making my blog useful. But that is partly newness as a blogger and partly the pace of my recovery. Living life each day is part of recovery and I blog about that. I overlap more and more lately between my blogs but that's a good sign because it means the gap between what I see as my 'regular' life (Montana Momma blog), my sick-person life (Turtle Medicine), and my stuck-in-the-EEO process life (Bread and Roses) are gradually starting to become less seperate; less divergent.
I envision moving on in my life and getting to let Bread and Roses sit idle or mostly dormant, becoming documentation of something I dealt with in the past. The other two could probably meld now, but they would meld most smoothly if I were transitioning into writing about my life after illness. But even considering how positively I have reason to be viewing the future right now, coping with life as a sick person has to stay high priority.
Branding: I just don't know if I'm structured enough to build in that direction. I want to keep blogging as recreational as I can, but still find ways to evolve and grow. I like it that people look at my blog. But I don't know what to make of it. There aren't "followers" but there are people looking. I don't know how hard to work on changing that prior to knowing what it is I have to share.
Favorite Brands? Questions for the rest of you
If you have a brand, how long did it take you to really get going? What brands to people look to the most as patients? Are you mostly looking for human stories or expertise? What are the names that pop into your head first?
