I have a question for all of you. Or maybe I have a whole bunch-o-questions.
I need to get some feedback. What does one write about in a blog? I have used this blog primarily as a platform for my random thoughts about life, my occasional vents about parenting, and a way to espouse my general wisdom, or lack thereof.
I've intentionally steered clear of topics like politics, religion (mostly), and other "hot topics." But I'm beginning to feel like I haven't been altogether myself here. After all, I have very strong opinions about, well...ok, about everything. But I've honestly been wary of branching out of what I consider to be relatively safe topics.
The thing is even my safe topics have received some pushback. Granted, not a lot, but what's that saying, "it takes seven compliments to negate one negative comment."? I would argue it takes 477, but that's just me.
So I've become skiddish, even disheartened by this whole blogging thing.
So I'm bringing it out into the open. How much do you share and how much don't you share? In a day and age where we can actually subscribe to a video blog called Drunk Cooking do we worry about how we are perceived? Do we share who we really are and risk making people who know us uncomfortable or do we stay safe and try to make everything sound like it's "ok."
Why do you read blogs in the first place? What are you looking for?
I feel like I need to know.
