What happens next to WWJD?

I am lucky to have a friend who actually knows stuff about blogging.  Alissa over at knows more about blogging than I ever will.  She gives me things to think about, advice when I need it and sits with me when I (very rarely) go to a blogging event.  She gave me something to think about about a year or two ago when we were at such an event.  Someone asked me what kind of blog I had and I answered the question with a blank stare.  Thankfully, Alissa answered for me: a lifestyle blog.

How cool was that?  I write a lifestyle blog.  Who knew?

Then I looked at stuff and realized that "online personal musing that appear randomly from my brain" isn't a category of blogging.  The first seed is planted.

Jump forward a year or so to last week when Alissa sends me an email saying she received something from a WWJD and it was actually about Jesus and not me!  Surprising?  No.  Cause for thought? Yeah.

Related topic jump:

I'm working on getting my shit together.  I feel pulled in 27 different directions and need order.  The ramblings I write are in my brain constantly.  I need direction.

So does the blog.

So where do I go?  What do I do?  I rather like the idea of writing about parenting, raising empowered girls and fixing my kind of fucked up life.  But that's at least two different blogging topics.  Eh, I could probably live with that.

I want to change the name.  The name actually comes from a saying I had when all my friends were moving away from me - What Would Judi Do and How Do My Actions Affect Her?  Shortened, it's WWJD.

I'm back to feeling indecisive.
  1. 1.
    not settling an issue.
    "these experimental results are indecisive"
    synonyms:inconclusive, proving nothing, settling nothing, openindeterminate,undecidedunsettledborderlineindefiniteunclearambiguous,vague
    informalup in the air
    "an indecisive result"
  2. 2.
    (of a person) not having or showing the ability to make decisions quickly and effectively.

I accept undecided, unsettled, unclear, hesitant and tentative.  I draw the line at weak.

All of this is to say I'm thinking of changing things. I'm open to ideas.  That's a hint - share your thoughts with me.
