I've been asked a few times recently, if I'm not worried about "certain" people reading my blog?
I guess because I have chosen to be "me" on my site and not use an alias, some people are shocked by that.
I'll be honest, it wasn't until after about a month of blogging that I thought,, "hmmmm, maybe I should be making up a different name for myself and my children. Maybe I shouldn't be putting personal pictures and stories/experiences on here."
I did give thought to the fact that family members or friends might come across my blog. Hell, my hubby didn't even know this site existed until a month ago.. lol
I went through about a day of panic. I thought about it over a glass of wine. (I KNOW!! CRAZY EH?? ME HAVING A GLASS OF WINE?! lol)
I decided that I wasn't changing a thing.
First,, Pictures.. I put them on because I like seeing other pictures.. I feel like I "know" a person better when I can put a face to the name and behind the words that I'm reading.. I love when people have pictures..
As far as people being worried about creeps looking at the pictures... I can't control that.
I read on a blog post a little while ago (and it's so true),, that there are so many creeps out there that can get off on ANYTHING! Pictures of feet or toes, pictures of hands, pictures of animals.. Gross, I know!
So, what I have to be worried about is my girls and their physical safety..I know that my girls are safe with me, and they will always be safe with me.
I can't let the FEAR of some creep hold me back from doing what I love.
And when it comes to my posts...
THIS IS ME PEOPLE! If you don't like it, don't read it! If you're shocked by some of the things that I say, or at who I "really" am... SURPRISE!!
This is my life. It's crazy. I'm crazy, but it's my life!
I'm sure there are things on here that certain people wouldn't want to read. I'm sure my mom or mother in law doesn't want to hear about fights with my hubby, or fights with my children... lol.. but again,, it's my life.
|THIS IS ME!! THIS IS MY FAMILY!|
The reason that I started this site though was to connect with other women. To show my life. The good, the bad, and very often the ugly. By showing this, I hope to make other women feel better about themselves, about their marriages, their body, their parenting skills (or lack of).
If people want to read my posts and judge me, go nuts. I've been judged my whole life and I'm doing just fine.
If I can put my life "out there" and help even just one person at my expense, it's totally worth it to me.
So, I will continue to write about my life, and everything that goes on it. There may be some posts about friends, there may be some about my hubby, my family, whatever.. The will even be posts about people that I know are reading (try not to piss me off people! lol)
I will never name names, I will never give personal info about someone else, and I will never be hurtful. I will just continue to write my "story".
I have nothing to hide, (not saying that those of you using an alias do. I totally understand why some people choose to be private, and don't blame them at all.)
I am me and this is my life..
There are people reading that don't realize I KNOW they are reading. In fact there are people that I'm sure are reading, just so that they can judge me and my life and maybe even report to someone else.
Guess what? That's okay too! I hope you're enjoying and I hope you're getting what you're looking for!
Usually, when people judge another person, it is because they see something within that person that reminds them of themselves.. Something that they don't like about themselves... Hmmm... makes you think, eh?!
I probably should have done it a long time ago, but better late than never.
That is the just of it.
That is why I have chosen to be me, and not use an alias or hide behind the computer.
I think that my final quote will sum it up for everyone..
