Why Blog?

So it's been a while since I've posted again and I'm wondering whether or not to keep this blog going. It seems that the original intention of this blog -- to document the journey of turning a bare grassy suburban backyard into a permaculture paradise -- has fallen by the wayside, and now I'm not sure what the hell this blog is about or why the hell I even blog. At the moment I have lots I'd like to write about but I can't seem to get the words from head to screen. I suppose it doesn't help having two little ones tearing around the house interrupting my train of thought every time I sit down. Then somedays I feel like I'm missing out on the fun of a project because I keep thinking 'This will be a good blog post' and become so consumed by the idea of blogging it that I forget to just enjoy whatever it is we're doing.
I've toyed with the idea of starting a new blog, maybe a couple, and keeping a definite theme (gardening, homeschooling, craft etc) but then I think how entwined all those aspects of my life are; I couldn't really split them up into neat little segments like that and one would spill over into another ... just like it has done here. Maybe I should just stop being so bloody controlling with a theme.

Oh! Are we supposed to have a theme? Whats mine? Thoughts of a Scatter brain? hehe I sort of started ours out as a homeschool/family catch up type blog and then found myself just posting any old thing. I think one blog is enough, I can't seem to find enough time to post there let along keep up the others. As for your questions re wordpress ( i think I saw that on facebook). Those that use it say its better. You can apparently do more with it. Too much change for me though. You know what they say about old dogs and new tricks...I am having enough trouble learning to use my new phone.
