What happens next?

At first I was going to talk about how I’m feeling a little uninspired with writing. Posting every day with NaBloPoMo has left me with little to talk about, and I really don’t have time to perfect posts before publishing. B

ut that isn’t the whole truth. I’m not a great writer, and I don’t have tons of time to dedicate to this hobby, but the fact is that I have a TON to say and write about. When I started this blog, I was really only looking for a new way to share pictures, since babyshark had really run its course (and was costing way too much money for what it was). I knew I would be sharing photos more frequently with a new human on its way.

Then Vivian came and a whole lot of life happened. I didn’t expect to have so MUCH to talk about. My head is figuratively exploding with thoughts and wishes and frustrations, but I am reluctant to share them here. I want to be unabashed and honest with what is going on in my life and in my head, but I just can’t do that knowing that my family, friends, and coworkers are reading about my life here. And it’s partly my fault for posting links to fun posts on facebook – naturally some will come here regularly and see some of the darker (which are really just a light grey given my censorship) posts.

So what to do? Do I continue to post the “day in the life” type posts here – stories of our family, pictures, videos – and basically cater this site to those who know us off the internet? And keep the other ideas separate, offline, or perhaps anonymous? Or should I just let the veil down and say the truth, and hope I don’t get shunned or dooced?

  1. tricky, yes.
    your blog shouldn’t be about catering to anyone, it should be an outlet for yourself to share stuff that’s on your mind. people who are curious and interested will read, and will keep returning, regardless of how you know them.

    for myself, i am honest on my blog about my life, about mothering and i have shared some pretty personal struggles on there. but, i only write about things i’m ok my MIL reading, that’s my barometer!
    good luck!
