These past few days have been an introspective roller coaster for me. How do I choose a single topic for a blog that is going to remain interesting and fresh for an entire semester (or longer) if everything goes according to plan? My ideas are either too broad (world peace) or too narrow (cats) and it has been interesting trying to find in me the balance between academic and fun.
I have found that most of the things that I have been drawn to have had a twist of feminism in them so I have toyed with the idea of focusing on the medias portrayal of women and women in fiction in general, but I have to admit that social justice bloggers scare me. I desperately don't want to get sucked down that hole and I do not want my blog to become full of angry feminist rants. There is so much negativity around these things and I do not want to add to that. I would much rather write things that are uplifting and lighthearted and fun. I think that joy can be just as powerful, if not more, as anger.
So here I go tentatively dipping my toe into the blogging world. Lets go on an adventure to make people happy and send a good and uplifting message at the same time!
