I must confess, I am probably far too honest in my blog posts a lot of the time. It doesn't really bother me that much because sitting behind this computer screen of mine I can pretend that nobody actually reads my blog. Its kind of like writing in an electronic diary. I get my thoughts out of my head and don't really think about who is going to read them. The only problem with that is that being a personal blog my posts usually involve experiences in my life and people in my life. Sometimes those people read my blog.
I don't really know how many of my friends and family actually read my blog. I know my mum has said that she very rarely reads it because my posts usually make her cry (not necessarily because they make her upset) and she can't handle how emotional they make her. I suppose in a way that's a good thing? To get an emotional response from people means what you have written has touched them in some way. That is one of my motivations to share my story. I hope to let others know they are not alone, and maybe in some small way inspire people with my journey. I hope that I am achieving this.
Recently I added my photo challenge 52 weeks of memories to the blog as well. This was to give me a creative outlet for my love of photography, but also to build a sense of community around the blog. Actually moreso to add another dimension to the community around the blog. I already have a great interactive community on Facebook (thanks for being a part of it) and this way I can also incorporate Instagram a little more.
I hope you all find my posts engaging and enjoyable. I know sometimes I write the emotionally heavy stuff, but rest assured the blog is also peppered with fun and humorous posts too. Possibly an acquired sense of humour, but if you are here reading this then you must love it! I have been working really hard since November last year to grow my blog (in the probably misguided hope that I will one day make money from it so I can stay home with bubs).
So, I would love to know what you all think?
Do you like my posts?
Do you prefer the emotional ones over the fun stuff or vice versa?
Why do you come to read my blog?
Ok I think that's enough questions. I also want to say a HUGE THANKYOU to all of you for reading my blog and engaging with me on Facebook. You guys are the best!
