Pros and Cons of Blogging
You know why I like to write and blog? Because being forced to write it all out is my way of tempering my opinions~ something I worry is necessary when my initial expression of them takes place when I'm in full-on hothead mode.
There's so much I can't say unless I'm with friends (and that hasn't been often since leaving Alaska) enjoying spontaneous communication that won't be misunderstood. No matter how much ownership I have of my thoughts and feelings, I still feel responsible about how sharing the negative ones might affect or possibly hurt my readers out here in BlogLand. Utilizing my probably-illogical-logic, I care about you, but I don't know you all that well, and there's something about that lack of closeness I respect and am cautious about, you know what I mean?
Long story short: I've been posting sporadically (apologies) because big thoughts have been taking up most of my energy, and I've been inflicting the rants on Mom, Shannon, and Shauna. Yes, I respect them too, but they've known me long enough to not have their blood pressure rise as they suffer eye strain reading my multiple-screen-long messages. They're also very good at knowing when to offer sympathy, chocolate, or a swift kick.
I know, I know, I owe those ladies cookies BIG TIME.
Stay tuned, because I have had good news this week that I'm looking forward to sharing regarding Bitty Banners (new ones will be posted in my Etsy shop this weekend- can you say MOTHER'S DAY? SUMMER? KIDS SAFARI?), my upcoming trip to Alaska (we're celebrating a graduation in this family!) and I'll link you up with some awesome sites, resources, and recipes too.
Thanks for checking in on me- here's to getting to know you better. Though it might hurt your eyes, it will earn you cookies. Weigh the pros and cons if you need to.
