I used to be really embarrassed about my blogging. But when I started this new blog, I decided to come out of it and share it with my family and friends.
In the past I actually hid my blogging. Which may sound ridiculous, as it is being published for anyone to read, but what I mean is I was hiding it from people who knew me, because I didn’t want to let so much of me out in public, so that people could join the dots and read too much about my life and draw conclusions about me I didn’t want them to.
But the truth is, that writing has always been outlet for me. Some of the first blog posts I wrote, on a blog long lost, would probably win first prize in the most god-awful blog writing ever. My grammar, spelling and general style is always babbling, but it was even worse then.
But this time is different, and I decided to share this with my family and friends. Just a simple email saying this is what I’ve done so far, this is me, if you’d like to read it then I’m happy for you to do so. I’ve nothing to hide anymore and I’m going to share my thoughts on the well, and if I can’t allow the people close to me to read them, and I’m not really sure what the point of it all is.
So there really is no point in my blogging, other than it’s a bit of a way of letting off steam. But, it’s also something that always been in me.
I think the catalyst for wanting to get back into blogging was getting a decent computer. Getting a fantastic 21 inch iMac really made me want to spend time on it writing and producing something wonderful. I’m not sure I’ve done that, and with the iMac screen repair still an issue, it’s a little bit tainted right now in my mind.
But generally, blogging is an outlet for me and I’m happy to share it with my family and friends now. I’m not sure if this is something I should be proud of, or something I should be running away from.
