A unique perspective and set of experiences is the reason we enjoy reading from others and always seek to grow from each other.
Now if you know me at all, I really don’t want to commit to a particular focus or topic. When I thought of starting a blog, I had trouble with the focus part of it.
As I read about blogging “they” say: pick a topic, be specific, find a niche….find a focus to build a specific audience. Pick something you are interested in that you can write about consistently.
Me? Focus? Commit to just one topic or two? But I’m interested in too many topics…I want to write about freedom, missions experience, travel, culture, photography, entrepreneurship, small business start ups, ending world poverty (or at least debating if it is possible), religions, philosophical debating, stopping corruption, or how corruption stunts development, the good news of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior, baking, cooking, growth and development both personally and professionally, books, movies, ending sex trafficking, ending the war on drugs, suicide prevention, abortion, and many more topics that interests me (and not necessarily in that particular order). How do I narrow my focus and choose just one or two subjects and combine them and consistently write on just those topics? It’s just not in me to do so…yet.
So I will be uniquely me without apology. I refuse to be boxed in to any one or two topics simply because it’s just not me (yet). Not to say that it’s anything goes, because you certainly won't find me writing about certain topics that are not very interesting to me, but I want to write about my unique experiences and perspectives on life. If I want to write about the hair in my pizza and what makes me most annoyed about it (it will surprise you) I want to do so (warning: future blog post)….
What will I promise to you is that in my unfocused-ness (is that a word? it is now, lol), I commit to make it engaging, sometimes funny, sometimes touching, perhaps at times sad, but my goal is to add value to your life in whatever small manner I am able if you allow me the honor of reading from 'lil ol' me.
So I finally came up with a name for my blog….Bokeh.
Ah, mission accomplished, blog named! More on Bokeh later....
