An Identity Crisis: A Blog's Tale

My blog is suffering from a bit of an identity crisis.

Maybe it should be considered a metamorphosis. That word always reminds me of Kafka and the horrible story about the beetle...oh, it gives me the creeps!

Moving on...

I feel like Home for Hire is starting to change. To sprout little wings. To grow. Now, the number of readers hasn't jumped by leaps and bounds--you are still just a little community of people who read my blog every once in a while :). Yet, I feel like my blog is saying, "Hey, Nicole! Go deeper! Write about more! Get on it!"

I've got little ideas buzzing around for Home for Hire--that's why I changed my tag line to Heart.Life.Home.

I want to write more about what is going on in my heart.

I want to talk about more about life by writing about capturing the year and supporting adopting families :)

I want to chat more about my home and keep DIY projects coming and recipes too.

I simply can't choose one.

So, instead of trying to shove my blog into a box with certain niche, I'm going to let it roam free. I enjoy reading blogs with a certain "bend" or "theme," but I am simply not good at writing about one main thing.

I hope that all of you lovely people continue to read and comment on my little humble blog home. I hope, that as I start writing about some new things, that you stick with me. I blog because I enjoy it, but also because I love the community it develops. Otherwise, it's like talking to myself in the bathroom mirror (and who ever does that...I mean, I sure don't).

Even if I have a post entirely without pictures.


  1. Nicole---
    Life is about change and evolution. I think it is only natural that your blog would do the same. As you grow, change and embrace life---your blog will too.
    For those of us who are inspired by you and enjoy your thoughts, ideas and projects....we will gladly follow along!!!

  2. I love this post! Thanks for linking up to our party and for sharing your heart! I think allowing your blog to roam free is a wonderful thing....your blog is a reflection of you and all you love.

    Enjoy the journey.

    There is such inspiration in that.


  3. Hi, Nicole,

    I clicked over from the "what my blog wants to be" party, although I'm not participating as of yet (lots going on in my normally quiet world). Just wanted to say that I like the idea of letting a blog choose its own path. That's one reason I named mine "A Collection of This and That," because some days I'm in the writing mode, other days the decorating mode ... whatever I'm feeling is what I want to blog about. So ... thumbs up, girl, and I'm your newest member of the following community. :)

  4. Love your tagline! It's what a blog is - what you choose to write about so don't box yourself in! Glad that you are roaming freely and can't wait to see more. Glad you joined our party and a new follower.

  5. A mixed bag of sorts ... I like that idea. Otherwise I'll find myself glueing things to doilies just so I can have a diy to post ...

    I, too, am realizing that my heart is getting more and more wrapped up into my blog. It's so personal (unlike that balanced journalistic style) and I'm increasingly sharing more of me on each page and each post.

    Thank you so much for opening up your heart to share your blog hopes and dream with us at our link party ...



  6. nicole, i love your blog and love your true heart.... that always comes through to me. it's ok to sprout wings and change- that is a wonderful thing!

  7. Roam free! Go for it! I, too, am surprised at how I'm drawn to writing personal posts...and how supportive the blog community is.

    Thank you so much for linking up, sorry it has taken me so long to come by to check them out!

    Happy to be a new follower.
