I look at other blogs by Latter-day Saints, like the one by the tirelessly enthusiastic and joyful convert Al Fox (the so-called “Tattooed Mormon”), and they are filled with earnest and inspirational faith-promoting stories written in a fun, easy, conversational style. Many of my pedantic posts, by stark contrast, are over-long self-serious essays. I also don’t talk much about my personal life, but that may be a manifestation of both my Canadianness as well as my general tendency toward introversion.
The question, I suppose, should be who am I writing for? When I compose a blog post, who do I anticipate my audience will be? Though I’m not doing it consciously, I think I try to write in a way that is accessible to everyone, Latter-day Saint and non-Mormon alike. I might lean slightly more toward writing for a Mormon audience, just because that saves some time when I’m writing. I don’t have to stop every three lines and explain what a “ward” is.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a fun and inspiring blog, maybe about crafts or something, I think LDSLiving.com has a list that you can start with. Or you can dive into the phenomenon of Mormon Mommy Blogs, which are apparently quite popular and have received surprising mainstream attention. But if what I’m doing here, whatever that is, floats your boat, then great. I hope you feel welcome.
