In case you’re ever wondering why I chose to blog here and put our lives out there,
here’s my explanation:
– Writing here is fun – having written mostly according to style guides and briefs during my career, this is loads of fun.
– This blog is very cathartic – while I only put out about 50% of what’s in my head and heart, I’ve released tears, discovered happy moments and once or twice let loose at things that have bothered me.
– I figure out a lot while writing – lots of anger gets tempered, problems find solutions, and intentions are made.
– I realise a lot of this could remain in word documents, or a private blog, but I enjoy sharing and connecting with a brilliant online community through blogging. Being “answerable” to public postings also keeps my thoughts and feelings restrained, which is not a bad thing as I’m often prone to a bit of drama. Also, because the grammar judgers out there freak me out a bit, I’m motivated to keep my spelling and words disciplined. By the way, there are a couple of posts saved as drafts that are just for you one day.
– Mostly, this is my online diary for you, a record of our time together, your progression, and an insight into me. Too late I’ve realised there’s so much about my childhood, development and own parents that I sadly don’t know about, and wish I did. A few years ago while I was moving my mom’s stuff and clearing out everything, I found a diary she had kept when I was about six. There were only a few entries, but they gave me extraordinary insight into her and what she went through, and it helped me to come to terms with some things about who she is and what she’s been through.
I hope you’ll one day understand why I put us out there…
