Last weekend I attended the Iowa Bloggers Conference in Fort Dodge Iowa. I learned a ton, met some great new people and got to see some folks I haven’t seen in a while. A good day for sure.
Being a blogging event I was frequently asked what my blog is called and what I blog about. While the short answer “It’s called Knotty Things” is pretty simple, it usually required some explanation. What I blog about? That’s even more complicated! So, in between basketball games I mulled both these questions over quite a bit. While I freely admit my blog- much like my own self- are a work in progress, here are the answers to both questions as I see them today:
#1 What’s a Knotty Thing? When I originally settled on this (3rd) name for my blog it was because I was blogging a lot about marriage. While I don’t write about that as much as longer I think the title still works on a couple levels- “knotty” as a play on the word “naughty” and “knotty” as tangled/ complicated. So, while I’ve updated my tagline, I am not anticipating yet another title change anytime soon.
#2 What is Knotty Things about? Things that I struggle to understand. Things that I have a strong opinion on. Things I am insane enough to think other Gen Xers (along with a few Baby Boomers and Gen Y folks) might also be thinking about and/ or contemplating . And, a little silliness along the way as well because life’s too short to be serious all the time.
As always, thanks for stopping by. Subscribe here or follow my pinterest board (also called Knotty Things) to see what crazy thing I’ll contemplate next!
