Lately people have been asking me “why don’t you blog anymore?”
I can’t begin to mention how many posts I have begun… And then become disheartened and never complete them.
A couple of reasons why. In this age of social media and quick fixes – I wonder why it is necessary to expose my life to the world. Do people really care about my dysfunctionality? Do they read my post – laugh a bit, relate a bit – and then move on with their lives? And then when they see me in the public domain, have intense pity for me– or empathy for my lacks and wants.
My main goal of this blog now is to have a forum to keep my family and friends informed about my life. I no longer have the luxury of sitting down and speaking on the phone. I barely can send out a two sentence what’s app and a few pics. As pathetic as it sounds, it’s true. So why then does the person who friended me on FB 5 years ago after a 3 minute meeting, need to know intimate details of my life. FB is the forum I use so everyone I want to read my blog, can know I posted. I also suppose that one does not have to read it if they don’t want to.
I also love writing. And I miss it. I have lost doing things for me, in the neverending, ever elusive chase for routine and order. So that part of me, my creative vessel is a empty gaping cavity at the moment.
So — I’m just testing the waters. Using the power of the web to garner interest. Yes – I should continue on a public forum – or possibly just email those that are interested.
Give me your feedback.
