I'm a Dork!

OK. I just got a comment from someone who said that they were going to be a reader of my blog. It made me really happy. I know I'm not writing anything completely earth shattering, like JK Rowling, but I feel that as long as I reach one person, I'm doing well.

I also received my first criticism in a personal correspondance. This person that I've been writing to thinks it's getting hard to talk to me because I mention one of my ex boyfriends a lot. I didn't really think that I was, but now I know it bothers this person. So I'll not mention my ex to this person, should they choose to even write me back. (It would be sad if they didn't, because I like talking to this person.)

I know it's "my blog," but if something I write about totally turns you off, please tell me. There are some things better left unsaid to the masses. I'm not saying that these things will go unexpressed, but they'll be expresses in other places--like poetry, a journal, or even through a picture.

By the way, last night I drew a daisy and it actually looks like a daisy! I'm so happy because my stuff usually looks more comic than real.

You know what? It's your blog. Write whatever the hell you want. If people comment that they don't like what you post... they DON'T have to read it, you know.

The blog should be an outlet for you, not an audience. Why did you start blogging in the first place? Most people say they were looking for an outlet or a community for some support.

If you can't be yourself, you're denying yourself that outlet and a community of like-minded people.

So be YOU, okay? :-)

You're right. I do need to be myself. But I also don't want to bore people.

I try to be as interesting as I can because I want people to read what I write and not wonder, "What's she going to complain about now?"

I hope you come back. I love your blog.
