Blogging on Blogging

I have opinions.

Did  you know that?


Of course you did. 

But, I have found myself starting posts and deleting them...unsure of what to say or share.

I have been heavily self-editing and it ends up not being worth sharing after I have taken out everything that it seems like I couldn't share. (did you follow that?)

I know -- this too seems highly ironic after all the over sharing I have done about my surgery.

I end up wishing I could be more like my friend Hilary, who posts about all kinds of things and shares her opinions freely. I love the snapshot her family will get of what kind of person she was and really enjoy being able to read about what was going on in the world today.

Or...if I could be more like my friend Lara, who had gotten so good about writing about the everyday stuff that it just seemed natural that when her family hit a bump in the road, she would use her blog to update and uplilft everyone she knows.

So...I'm hoping to do a little more blogging. Keeping it real. Sharing not just our family stories, but mine as well.

Any thoughts on how to do this? : )

Hey girl I know absolutely what you are talking about. You go through my post log and I have many unpublished post that I thought I would save for a later day. Ones that I took a lot of time in writing and then think that to real or something.
We need to Just do it! What is the worst that can happen? Who is the blog representing?
I don't know! See you on Friday!

Well, it is 100% true that Hilary has opinions coming out her ears.
I think prop 8 was my breaking point. I thought long and hard about putting anything on my blog, but then I did.
And now you just can't shut me up.
Hey, you got the "all clear" from your doctor -- are you sure you didn't just celebrate with lunch? ;)

That is an excellent question and I am sorry to have no answer for you. I love having a blog but there is comes times in my life where my life is boring and so I can't blog about boring stuff!! But then again, maybe it depends on my writing skills that would make my everyday life seem interesting.

I am not a feelings blogger. Sometimes I want to be and I have feelings and opinions to share...but then I remember that isn't why I started blogging. I do enjoy reading others opinions though.

Keep it real, and not what you think people would expect of you, or what you think might be entertaining.

At the end of the day, it's your friends and family that derive the most joy out of reading about you and your life.
