Posted by Not a soccer mom at 3/13/2009
I have not posted in a few days. Not a lot to write about when you are stuck indoors spring cleaning or out doing yard work. I have been working on a post about dating but it is taking me a bit longer than I thought.
It is crazy sometimes how a blog- and not necessarily knowing your full audience can cause you to re-think your verbiage. As my close friends and family know, I am rarely at a loss for words, rarely do I hold back in what I say, and I always tend to have an opinion.
When you put yourself out there on a blog, and sometimes strangers and even more often, your mother reads the posts, you cant help but feel a bit hesitant when writing about anything that would most times be saved for your best girlfriend.
In contrast to that, a blog makes you WANT to share you thoughts and feelings. It is a tug-of-war between the anonymity and the celebrity of a blog.
Based on the blogs that I follow regularly and also some celebrity blogs I have stopped by, I feel this may just be a commonality with most bloggers.
So- although I have not been on a date in a really long time, a friend of mine mentioned to me the lack of postings about our 'girls night out' experiences. This is the one thing I have been attempting to but not quite able to write about to this point. Keep watching.
