Should i pre-decide my blogging area or just see where it takes me?
Im soon going to start a blog.. it will be on My portpholio site for my art and music. I know i will use my blogg to write about things in the area of what i create like writing about my own artworks and music and my experiences I find in the business. However I also want to write about other subjects at times.... Although im not sure if i will adopt any certain area...
I know its not a good idea to just blog about anything and you should have an area.
What shall i do?

What's your aim with your blog?
Do you want to do it just for the love of it?
Do you want to create a value added site?
Do you want it to inform people about what you do?
Do you want it to inspire people to do what you do?
Do you want it to be a get rich quick scheme?
What is the biggest vision you could have for your blog?
If it helps, I've very recently started a blog about decluttering my house. My biggest vision is to inspire and help others with the emotional side of declutting (and as a side effect end up with a more ordered life).

ready, fire, aim
I have a website that I guess is pretty similar to yours. Mine hosts all of my short films on it. I've had a blog ever since I started the site, and I kept changing what I wrote about. At first I was just doing updates on my work, then I started writing inspirational articles about passion and things like that. I kind of did that on accident, but I enjoyed it.
Over time I became much more structured, and I have a separate site that is all about passion. Now I use my blog on my short film site for updates and for things that relate specifically to artists and filmmaking.
So, from my own personal experience... I'd say, just write. That's the only way you can really know. You'll find your own flow and you'll find what interests you. I had no idea I'd be writing the way I do now. When I read the stuff I write, it doesn't even feel like I wrote it. My writing skills improved and got more focused over time. So I say:
It's great to have a general focus, but don't constrain yourself too much. Experiment and see what works for you, then you'll gradually develop your own flow.
As Steve often says "Ready, Fire, Aim!" and then keep firing and aiming some more.
