Blogging and Family Readers

I like blogging. I enjoy sharing my thought and feelings; the happenings of my family. My blog has become a mixture of things, pouring my heart out, silly stuff and a sharing of the joys and sorrows in my life.

I usually post my blog links in my FaceBook profile. Until recently, I didn’t think anyone from there read my blog. But then people started "liking" my links, indicating to me that they went to my blog and read it. I also talked with another friend who is not as computer savvy but she commented on my Scooter People post. WOW! My thoughts and words are really getting around. For an instant I felt great. People were reading me!

Then I started thinking about some of the stuff I have been putting out here recently. My posts about the therapy are me bearing my soul and processing my thoughts and feelings. When I was at my family reunion this past weekend, I was very conscious of what I have put out here and a little worried about what might be said or what they might be thinking of me.

I know that most of the people in Bloggy world are not judgmental and will not hate me when I put my stuff out here. But you also don’t know me in real life; I don’t have to worry about facing you with you knowing my fears and tears.

For my family and friends who read my blog, I love that you read my words. Please don’t judge my words; this is MY outlet, MY space to spew, cry and be happy. I don’t want to be afraid and refuse to be afraid of what I put out HERE. I want to have and will continue to have the freedom and the courage to open my heart and soul if need be. If you care enough to follow my link and read me, I am going to trust that you care enough about me not to judge me, but to pass a little extra love my way; through the good and the bad posts.

From here on out, I am not going to worry about WHO reads me; just accept the fact that everyone who reads me understands and loves me.  But most of all, THANK YOU TO ALL WHO READ ME!

  1. I kinda have the same issue. But, is in an outlet for me and what I feel. If they don't like it, don't read it.

  2. I was thinking about this same issue just the other day when I remembered on facebook is a link to my blog. I never ever facebook but I got a friend invite from someone I barely knew in hs. (actually I can't even place the name so I guess I didn't even know them.) It made me think that maybe I would like a little more seperation of Me and BlogMe and I might remove the link. I'd prefer the two not intersect :)

  3. I can understand that completely. It definitely feels more like exposure when real world people that you know read it. I used to have the two worlds combined. Now they're separated.
