Rest of Summer: Back Home, Teaching, and Things to Come.

How do you keep blogging from feeling cheesy?

I left Florida yesterday, and was back in Pennsylvania by early morning. A long 18 hour trip. I’m here for a wedding, then spending the rest of the month with my family before I make my move for my phD program. I’ll be back in Florida before the end of the month, so A LOT is happening in a short time frame.

I don’t have a lot to say but a lot to do. As the title of this post suggests, I started online teaching English 102: Composition, Research & Rhetoric. 16 weeks into 6 weeks. (:

I’m trying to think of what to do with this blog. I made it mainly to share my publications and keep it as a creative/personal space, with the intent to include other art & writing-related life things. But still, I struggle with knowing what worthwhile to include here. When I get into my actual own home space, I want to paint and do all sorts of visual art. I want to join community initiatives and take part in more activism. I want to be active in an LGBTQ+ organization again and coordinate events. These are all things I did in undergrad that were meaningful to me but fell away when I began a new chapter of my life and focused on my writing. Of course, I’ll still be so busy with school and writing. There’s so much I want to do, but sometimes I feel like my focus is all over the place.

Lots of things I’m always trying to figure out. What sorts of things would you like to know or read about or see? And the real question is, how do you manage your time and priorities?

      I think I end up writing about my writing and generally just my day-to-day life. Lately that involves a lot of school since I’m in academia. (: But I also try to think about why other people would want to read about that. Sometimes it’s hard for me to keep a distance from the audience when I’m not sure who my audience is! I like talking about movies and books and things like makeup/skincare, but I haven’t done much of that yet. I ‘think maybe my issue is knowing where to separate “professionally” and personally, when I think of who may read my posts.


      1. I guess Blogging what your passion about, that’s a start, in my opinion, as reader myself, I like to read blogs with integrity, sincerity and honesty of whatever the writer is Blogging about. Just sayin’, I hope this helps you find your niche. Hope for the best ✌🏻👍🏼😁
