Why we blog
I don't know about anyone else but the reasons I blog are many, I have much to say, it makes me feel like I'm getting closer to living my dream, and sometimes, I just have to get rid of the things in my head.
Sometimes when we write, especially on our blogs, we consider the audience. I know there are things I don't say because I know my Mom reads this! And then there are the people you don't want to hurt. Occasionally someone reads your blog and finds that you have written about them, maybe not in a favorable light, but you didn't know they read your blog. That happened to me recently. The blog I posted about my ex boyfriend getting married, somehow he found it and read it, then sent me an email. Twat waffle.
I told a friend who recently started her own blog about it, and I think now she is afraid to write, afraid someone who will not be gentle with her heart will read it. Another blog I follow posted something from her past, just short little sentences about things she did when she was younger, nothing the rest of us haven't done, but she got so many negative comments that she took it down.
I say fuck 'em! I'm tired of filtering what I say to please people. I don't care if you don't like it, don't read it. It's time to get back to the reason I started this blog, to be honest, to say what I mean, and if people don't like it, oh well, this is who I am, warts and all.
