I don't know about you, but I've always been a "LOOK AT ME!!!" sort of gal. I want to be the center of attention. I want everyone to know everything about me. I want everyone to like me. I want everyone to want to be my friend.
So I started a blog.
And dude. I can't express how happy it makes me to get comments on the ridiculousness that I write here. That a stranger took the time to read the nonsense/babble/craziness/tirade/manifesto that I cobbled together from my scattered and not always coherant thoughts...then took the time to leave me a little "so-and-so was here" message...that's just awesome. It makes me feel special.
I know this little blog will never be more than a diary with no lock, but the idea of other people reading about what's going on in my life and maybe giving me a little advice or encouragement or a new perspective - that's what I like about blogging. That's what I'm after.
You people leaving comments? Thanks for reading my blah blah blahs. Thanks for leaving your mark on my tales and letting me know I'm not just blowing a bunch of hot air out there in the world wide web. Thank you for being awesome. :)
I have been reading your blog for a couple months now. I found it through someone else's. I like reading your blog, I like how honest you are. I am honest but, a guarded honest because I don't want the people I know who read my blog to really know me? If that makes any sense. I don't even think I know myself. Not to drudge up the past but, I am really sorry for your loss and cried for/with you. I have suffered quite a few miscarriages, they SUCK. If you read my blog you will know I have 3 beautiful and healthy children but, it still hurts to have suffered.ReplyDelete
I totally get what you're saying about not wanting the people who know you to KNOW you - I had a nightmare the other night that my boss found my blog and I was all "OH NOES, I'M GONNA GET FIRED!!!"ReplyDelete
Thanks for your kindness - miscarriage is in the top 10 of worst things ever, and I can't imagine experiencing more than one, so I'm sorry for YOU.
I've not seen your blog before, but I'm going to be following it now. :)
