That is the question that has been pestering me for the past month or so. I go round and round with this. I love this mode of keeping up with my friends all over the globe but at the same time I struggle with wanting to protect my privacy and that of my family. I want to stay real but at the same time I feel vulnerable and open to criticism (which anyone who knows me well can tell you I don't take very well.) I could make my blog a private blog and only allow close friends to read it, but by keping it open to the public I have made some really neat friends that I would have never met otherwise.
A few weeks ago I was ready to give up blogging. Besides not having much time to do it I was thinking that maybe I was "over" blogging. Like, I didn't need it anymore. But as I imagined my life without this little outlet, a place for me to be me, I felt sad and even protective. I may not write as often as I would like but, yes I think I will keep my blog. I will write. I will be bold at times and closed and conservative at others. I will opt for the comment moderation option and I will feel free to delete your comment if I am so inclined. =)
So, fellow blogger who encouraged me to write today (You know who you are), thank you.
