I know, I know. It’s been a hot minute since I put a proper post on here. Let me explain:
I always struggle with wanting to write more on this blog and also wanting to keep certain things private, which would explain the four entries sitting in my draft box right now. A lot has happened in my life since the last post, but whenever I consider writing about any of it, I usually end up talking myself out of it in an effort to maintain a degree of privacy.
When it comes to my internet presence, I do put a good amount of personal information out, but there’s also a good amount that I keep to myself. I’m the same way off the web as well, but I find myself especially protective when it comes to the internet, since anyone and everyone can see it once it’s published. We’ve all seen people over-sharing on social media sites, and that’s exactly what I want to avoid.
However, this desire to keep the personal things personal often gets in the way of producing good, candid pieces on here, which is one of the aims of this blog. You see, even though I do this for myself, I realize that this blog is also for you, the reader. And as someone who
is pretty nosey loves to read personal blogs, I’m always blown away by how much I take away from posts that on the surface don’t apply to me, but contain universal principles that I’m able to learn from.
That’s where I want to take this blog.
Of course, I realize that getting this blog to that point will require a certain degree of vulnerability that I’m not totally comfortable with right now, but I’m willing to begin working past that. I still plan on keeping my business out of the streets, but I feel like there’s an art to effectively talking about life experiences without completely divulging everything. Hopefully I’ll be able to get that down pat.
If you’ve made it this far into this post, then thanks a lot for reading. The internet is truly a great place to be if you know good people and hang out in the right neighborhoods. As always, feel free to hit my inbox with any questions/comments/concerns, and I’ll be sure to answer them. I’ve also put a comment option on here for the non-Tumblr people!
Thanks, and talk to you all later.
