Several weeks ago, TechyDad noticed on my WordPress admin page that I was closing in on post number 2000. He actually noted that it would fall on a Friday, so I knew it would show up for an Aloha Friday topic. In February 2007, I started The Angel Forever as a Live Journal blog which eventually moved to a self hosted domain with the same name in October 2007.
Over the 2000 posts, I have written about being pregnant with my youngest, giving birth, my oldest starting school, my oldest switching schools, and soon my youngest heading to kindergarten. We have celebrated countless birthdays, events at school, and lots of Jewish holidays. The Angel Forever has documented our travels to Walt Disney World for the first time as a family in May 2009 and multiple times since then. I write about health topics (febrile seizures, getting your first mammogram), education topics, arts and crafts, and knitting. Since we adore books and I am a certified reading teacher, I started Tuesday Tales to focus weekly on books that we adore, reviews, meeting authors, literacy topics, and beyond.
As my children get older, and life changes the topics within The Angel Forever will morph and grow with me. So my question to you this week:
How has your focus changed during your blogging tenure? Do you tend to go more with the flow, or do you have a certain niche that you write about?
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the linky there if you are participating.
Congrats on the 2000 milestone! :) I tend to go with the flow – I sort of morphed into all meme’s all the time, but try to make them more of a personalized post rather than cut-and-dry specific. I do want to shift back into just writing to write about life events (which are ever changing) but with time constraints at least participating in the same meme’s each week (like Aloha Friday) keeps me focused and posting regularly. Once we get moved out West, I’ll probably decide it’s time for a change. ;)

Stacy Uncorked´s last blog post ..Road Trip Snack Attack
Congrats! WTG!! Since my blog is strictly a book blog, with a little RL thrown in, I would have to say I’m in the niche category. However, it has become larger in some areas.
Cheryl “Mash”´s last blog post ..Review “Tumbleweeds” by Leila Meacham
Congrats!!!! I like to go with the flow!!
Melissa Rheinlander´s last blog post ..10 Things No One Knew About Blood Jewel by Gorgia Cates
I tend to be parenting, reviews/giveaways. I did branch out to another blog to talk about faith/homeschooling. So I have 2 which is crazy to keep up with. I have in the past years been go with the flow but I’m trying to narrow it down lately.
Angela Richter´s last blog post ..What do YOU do for Bee Stings?
For me, it was starting a new site for the serious stuff and keeping my old site for the fun site. I really like the balance and separation.
Thanks for the ‘oy’- I needed that :)
Harriet´s last blog post ..What kind of death is worthy of spammers?
I go more with the flow as long as it’s a family-friendly topic. Congrats!
kailani´s last blog post ..Island News #24
I pretty much do memes & write about my family; that hasn’t changed since the beginning. Now I’m wondering how many posts I’ve got under my belt … brb: 1825. I’m closin’ in on ya! ;)
Smellyann´s last blog post ..Friday Fragments
Congrats on 2000! My blog is pretty consistently just random, if that makes sense…
Becki´s last blog post ..Storage Again
Congrats on all the posts! When I first started blogging I tried to be structured. Now I blog about whatever I feel like.
Becca´s last blog post ..Aloha Friday #40 – I’m 29!
I was wondering how many posts most bloggers have. I’m still in the 1200 range.
I don’t mind. I like my pace.
My focus did change. I started my blog as a diary for myself and then people came to it and now I feel like I have no privacy to share what I wanted to in the first place :) Weird eh…but I will eventually again.
Now I share things…
Happy weekend to you
