I’m a journalism major, and today in one of my classes, we looked at a recent graduate’s awesome design/art/life blog. I’ve often thought about blogging but never really felt like I had anything interesting or unique to say, and with being in college full time, working part time and planning the wedding, I wouldn’t be able to devote energy to it.
But now I’m mulling over starting a newlywed blog after the wedding in two months (!!). I will (hopefully) have a more regular work schedule, and I think it will give a hobby to replace wedding planning. Not to mention, I will have just moved to Baltimore, so it would give me an excuse to explore the city and write about it.
The only thing is – I’m not sure what approach I should take. We won’t be having a baby anytime soon, we aren’t really into home design or cooking, so that domestic stuff really wouldn’t be a focus. Sure, I could talk about adjusting to marriage and living together, but hasn’t that already been done? I don’t want this blog to just be a bunch of self-indulgent rambling that isn’t interesting!
I was thinking a focus on moving to a completely new city could work, especially as a resource for other newly moved or people considering moving… but I’m not sure if that is too short-term. Hmm…
So! Hive, share your great ideas, and of course links to your own great blogs if you have ’em!

I wanted to start a blog too but I didn’t really have an angle. We aren’t nesting in our current house since it is a rental. I don’t think that moving is short term, my husband and I have been living at our new home since August and we still haven’t really made a lot of friends outside of work or seen the sights nearby.

How about a newlywed couple exploring a new city?
You can write about local restaurants, events, living costs, activities, etc.

I like your idea of a newlywed couple adjusting to there new city. I also like your idea about talking about marriage and it’s adjustments, I actually think there isn’t enough out there on that topic. You might want to cross post this on the Newlywed board. It might get you more responses.

@MissAsB: Love the new profile picture! I do think moving is a big transition and haven’t found a lot of blogs about it…
@Gerbera & @kayakgirl73: That’s what I’m thinking of, a combination of reviews/posts about Baltimore from a newcomer’s perspective, and posts about being newly married.
Now for a name! …

Maybe you could get some ideas from our Share Your Blogs thread! Lots of bees post their blog links there, maybe one of them has a topic that you could use too!

I started a blog about a month ago. More so that I had a place to post pictures of the house and travel that wasn’t Facebook. It’s a little sarcastic but I love to have followers 🙂

@daniellemybelle: Thanks! I wasn’t sure how it would look all tiny as a profile pic but I love the big image of it. I think it looks like something out of Town and Country magazine or something!
