Blog Reality Check

by stacy on November 26, 2011

I’m not sure that I’m cut out for blogging.  As a writer, I write daily.  I write about things that matter deeply to me.  It may be my guilt over eating chocolate that’s not Fair Trade.  I write about my relationships and problems that I encounter.  I write essays on Breast Cancer, depression, cooking, my family, and walking my dog.  But, when it comes to writing for this blog, I never know if people are interested.  How many blogs do we need?  Do we need more blogs?   So, I’ve decided to make formal my decision.  I’ll write when I have something to say.  In this way, I’m not searching for things to say to stay in touch.  I consider this to be the equivalent of my social policy.  I aim to not say things that I do not mean.  If I say, let’s have coffee, it’s because I mean let’s have coffee.  For years I had a friend who whenever we ran into each other would say, “Let’s get together.”  It took me years to realize that it was a social nicety, and I need not try to arrange anything.  I’ getting comfortable with greeting someone in the moment and not promising anything for the future.  Not promising because I don’t have the time, don’t want to make the time, don’t have much interest, and/or need to be protective of my time.  Yoga, writing, knitting, and felting are my creative outlets.  I get cranky when I give all of my time away and don’t have space to go inwards.  And, these are my thoughts on this day.
