So… I can’t be sure if you’ve noticed that I don’t seem to know what the hell I’m doing with this blog. I mean, I can’t be sure if you’ve noticed this because why the hell would you be thinking about what I’m doing or not doing with my blog. I mean, why would you care? You’ve got very important things to think about that have nothing to do with this blog: your jobs, your babies, your desire for donuts, how to make that stick wreath you found on pinterest that would look great hung right next to your garage door, the upcoming release of the next star wars movie (I mean, we only have a few more months to prepare, people! I KNOW!)
And ultimately, I always come back to the idea that I just need to cut this baby’s cord and LET IT GO. “No one will care or even notice that your blog is gone, JodiAnn,” I tell myself, oh so kindly. Yet, I can’t give it up. I love keeping this blog. Keeping this blog is as good for me as swimming, as eating broccoli, as cuddling with my kids. Every single time I write in this blog, I feel healthier. I would love to write this blog every single day. And, I think I’m supposed to. I mean, that IS what a blogger is supposed to do – blog… frequently. And, as you know, I don’t do that correctly either.
Two years ago, I actually started a business called QueenPrincess Industries. I can hear you laughing… stop that! And I’m starting to feel a funneling, a bottle-necking, a focusing down in on not just what that “business” is but how it will serve the woman I have been becoming and the life I have been creating for myself these past several years. I’ve just thought of this brief tagline/ description/ cool-thing-to-write-under-“QueenPrincess Industries”-that-might-explain-what-the-business-DOES: “Fun Fitness Experiences for The Unapologetically Weird.” One of the first “fun fitness experiences” I designed was The Mermaid Workout ™ for which I then built the business, “Mermaid Fitness ™” (which is a subsidiary of QueenPrincess Industries, because I’m basically a mogul). Then, I created “MerKids ™.” And now I’ve got some pretty sweet other ideas for fun fitness experiences that I am not at liberty to reveal just yet. So, the “fun fitness” stuff is being dealt with. What about the “unapologetically weird” part?
And here I get to my point – so much sooner than I usually do, right? (I’m trying!): “ The QueenPrincess Says,” The Blog… IS the “unapologetically weird” part. This is the place where I chronicle the unapologetic weirdness of both the QueenPrincess herself (moi) and everyone and everything that the QueenPrincess (that’s me, again) loves. That’s it! That’s all! That’s everything!
I’m envisioning blog posts about my favorite unapologetically weird people. I’m envisioning blog posts about my unapologetically weird ideas, expectations, hopes, beliefs. I’m envisioning blog posts about unapologetically weird movements. I’m envisioning blog posts about unapologetically weird modes of inspiration, of being, of coping, of healing, of getting up out of bed every day and continuing despite despite despite despite despite every damn thing that conspires to tell you to stay in bed, it’s not worth it, just keep sleeping. I’m envisioning blog posts about the unapologetic weirdness of being a woman over 40 who continues to WANT MORE in a world that tells women over 40, they better want NOTHING and LIKE IT. YA, I’m envisioning maybe several blog posts like that.
In other words, I’m envisioning that this blog will continue on almost exactly as it has. But, perhaps with a SLIGHTLY more narrowed and focused focus, I will be able to write less each time and more often. I don’t know. Let’s see!
Be unapologetically weird (frequently and in under 1000 words), with love, Teamies,
