I think I am having an identity crisis. Who and what is Cucina Cara Mia? What am I trying to express and convey to my virtual fellow bloggers. Do I want to share about cooking, decorating, my family, my frustrations, my joy, my menopause??
I have a daily regimen of reading my favorite blogs. I love the ones about design and decorating. I admire all the incredible photographs that some share on their,, blogs. I drool over the ones about people who live in other parts of the world (especially Italy). Laugh at the quirky ones, get inspired by the spiritual ones. But....I don't think I have figured out what my blog is supposed to be.....So, I just don't share at all.
Did any of you have this feeling when you were newer bloggers?
I have thought about starting a home based business, Cucina Cara Mia, involving food and/or cooking in some shape or form. I have always liked to cook, and making home made items to sell at our local Sunday farmer's market could be fun.
But what do I sell? I am not much of a baker, but am certainly a good Italian cook, yet I keep putting off things like getting a business license or ordering business cards. Is it just fear? Is there not enough passion behind this idea? Much has been written about finding your passion in life.
I had been working in real estate part time the last six years. As everyone knows, things have changed drastically in the housing market. It was never my passion.
So the last six months I have wondered what that passion is for me. I want God to literally tell me ... Linda, this is what you are supposed to do with the rest of your life!! I pray about it, yet I still sit here pondering, reading books about, reading blogs about it, asking my husband what should I do?
Any suggestions on how you found your passion,or how to create a truly individual blog would be appreciated.
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!
