T M I
such a thing?
Someone asked me recently why I blog so much about my personal life.
I talk about my "deep" thoughts [for a blonde anyway], personal confessions and other reflections in a pretty TMI manner. More often than not, I really don't give a flying fart as to what kind of judgment my reader will "bless" me with. This is me. Take it or leave it.
I think this blog is more cathartic than anything. I get out all my thoughts in a place where, if someone feels so inclined, they can call me on the cement (or give me a high five, depending on the topic.)
I think it's a bit intriguing too, having just random Jane Doe out there reading things about my life. I guess I kind of like the thought that I've made my ultimate Confession to the world through Blogger. Anyone who stumbles across this blog gets the real me. I've nothing to hide & no secret agenda.
Even if I meet a fun group of people to grab a protein shake with, that would make me blissfully happy.
I also like that having a blog makes me write about my life. Even if I usually only do it 4-5 times per week. Very rarely, do I think I crank out something amusing, soul baring or thought provoking.
I guess for me, having a blog fulfills a greater need than just sitting at my desk all day listing fancy [expensive] clothes for people to buy.
That's why I do it.
I surely don't use this as a venue to write about how wonderful I am as a mom, daughter, wife or runner. And not how clever, or how needy or how (fill in the blank here) I am.
good, the bad and the ugly, and I adore every inch [or mile] of it.
