My last blog felt nice. It felt real nice.
I got a lot of really great feedback and you don’t know how much I appreciate anyone taking the time to read anything I write, let alone respond with their own experience or words of encouragement. It is equal parts spectacular and humbling. I love the rush I feel when I hit “publish” and I know that someone, even just one person, is reading what I wrote. It’s special.
Writing is not easy. Not the kind of writing that I want to do, anyway. It’s not easy to always get in touch with that honest side of yourself and not care what other people think when they read it. It’s not easy to write anything and make it sound good enough to post publicly. My honesty toes the line of going too far when I write about personal experiences, and I know that. I’m not trying to be the Taylor Swift of blogging or anything, I’m just writing what comes to me because it makes me feel better and helps me gain much-needed perspective.
Writing is scary. Much like what happened with my last blog, that perspective leads to examining feelings and parts of myself that I typically keep under lock and key. It doesn’t always have to be that serious, though.
So many people said to me, “You need to blog more often” and I would love to. Consistency is great! However, I’m never sure what to write about. I hit and miss on dating, lack of dating, and all of the ins and outs that come with that, but I don’t always know what to write about beyond that. I don’t want to write about sports, because that’s not what this is about. Here’s where you come in…
Brainstorm! Throw any and all topics at me. Privately, in comments on Facebook, in @replies on twitter, or in the comments section here on the blog. If you build it, I can write it. I’m just kidding, I just need a little push to help me along.
