How blogging works

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.


  1. Oh, just let it rip! I love reading what people have to say about dating and flirting and nights out. We all come from different backgrounds, have different goals, different ways of going about life, different ways of telling stories. That's what makes it fun.

  2. You go, girl! Looks like the Solo-Dads are anxious to read your post as well. ;)
