With a new home, fewer expenses, less stress, and a general new beginning in place for us, I’ve decided it’s time to step it up as a blogger.
So, I’ve made some goals. And I’ve read enough motivational books to know that a goal isn’t a real goal unless it’s written down and shared with others.
So, I’m going to do just that, and over the next few afternoons I’m going to share some of my better blogger goals with you all. I hope you’ll give me feedback as to whether or not those goals will make this blog a better experience for you!
GOAL #3: Add more humor. Add more sarcasm.
Sometimes I get so damn serious. Like with these goal posts (haha, goal posts).
I think I’ve been better lately, but every once in a while I write something heavy, I get kicked in the tenders by the aftermath, and I forget that laughing makes life a whole lot more tolerable.
If you read the early days of Single Dad Laughing, there was so much fun, sarcasm, silliness, and randomness. I want to get back to some of that for sure.
What I could use from you: appreciation for the jumps between serious and silly.
One reason I start steering clear of such writing is because I write something serious and people start chastising me when I jump back to silly. Other people accuse me of being a fraud if I say anything sarcastic. Other people tell me I’m wasting my gift (their words). Other people tell me they’re gonna leave because they thought this blog was “so much better than that!”
No, this is Single Dad Laughing, and it was never intended to be a totally serious, never silly, never ranty, never sarcastic, stick up the butt, never anything but rainbows and butterflies kind of a blog.
What it’s supposed to be is real. And real means that I laugh at a lot of things that aren’t serious. I hope you’ll all laugh with me.
