Possible 'jo locations:
Is my 'jo caving to the pressure to be 'like other blogs'? I have been watching fashion blogs for a year. They are mini businesses. Mine is not. Mine isnt sponsored, it isn't designed by a blog designer, it doesn't update every couple of months, I haven't lost heaps of weight and started looking like a celebrity and attended blog conferences and X-City Fashion Weeks. I talk about silliness, not clothing. I don't fit. Maybe I am ashamed of my blog because I haven't grown it—it is exactly what it was fifteen months ago.
This is the complete opposite location from the previous. Maybe my 'jo is MIA because it hasn't changed. If I had to conduct a door-to-door search for my 'jo, this is the town I would start it in. How do I make changes to something when the changes I envisage are possibilities, are the ones mentioned above, which I am not interested in? Will I be reinvigorated by a colour change? Or is it just the plain old fact that I have ADD and a year-long project is all I can manage before a complete radical change of direction is needed? Do I actually have the staying power for a thousand and one blog-posts? Do you?
Other things seem more exciting. By other things I mean Candy Crush, reading (ten books year-to-date as opposed to five same time last year), Pintresting book-rooms for my house, realestate.com-ing new houses with potential book rooms. Other things seem more intrusive. By other things I mean work being too busy, work being too tiring, sleep being too attractive, people being more present, dogs being more
What is my style? What do I like? What season is it? What is in? What isn't? I really don't even know what to wear anymore. Or who I am. Maybe it is more than my 'jo missing. Maybe if I find my 'jo, I'll find myself. This is all getting much more philosophical than I realised. Maybe my 'jo isn't missing, maybe it ran away.
Missing: My mojo. Pink and yellow brindle; small beady eyes; answers to the name of Darren. Reward of ever-lasting gratitude to anyone who locates it! Call 04765356778276664572938609.
