Where do we go from here?

So, I started this blog as a class project. Then, I realized how powerful a blog, if it is used correctly, can be. Now, I have to deal with questions. Questions like, should this blog remain strictly a feminist blog? Should I open it up to include more general news items and things that strike my fancy? Should I narrow my focus to writing about the process of reporting and the future of the newspaper industry?

Almost against my better judgment, I think I will open this up to become an opinion column. It's going to be my take on the world around me, with some reporting thrown in. I'm going to be talking about race. About feminism. About religion. The truth is, I think the country I love more than any other, the U.S., is slipping down a slope I'd rather not see it go down.

So, what do you think? Is broadening my horizons a good idea? Or, will my blog suffer because of it?

It's your soapbox.Write what you want.You always seem to be comfortable, regardless of your topic.I'd definetely be interested in seeing some opinion pieces from you.

I think you should just write about whatever makes you passionate. You are a wonderful writer and you express yourself so well you should not limit yourself. I hope that helps...rock on. BTW I just added you to my blogroll, somehow I forgot to do this up until today.

Thanks, Joe. I need to start moving some of my RSS feeds over to my blog roll. Like yours, for instance.

I'm with Joe. Write about what really moves you, and don't worry about fitting into a theme. It will all hang together if it's all authentically you.
