Sunday Scribblings: I would never write...

…something that intentionally offended someone. One thing that I’ve learned in my year of blogging is that you’re never quite sure who is reading. It can be easy to feel like it’s a private outlet; a journal of sorts, but the truth is that it’s more of an open forum. Most of the time people don’t comment and if you check the stat counter, it is very vague. So if I’m annoyed, my blog is not the place to let it out. If I’ve been offended and write about it leaving names out, you’d be surprised how many people come up to me and tell me they hope that it wasn’t something they did.

The reason I blog is because it is a creative outlet and a way to connect with people. I have revived old relationships, gained new friendships and strengthened bonds—all of which have fed me personally throughout the past year. It has helped me look at my days in a new way and see the beauty and the humor that is life. It has lightened my load and given me new insights in to others’ journeys. So although sometimes I really need to vent, most likely you won’t read about it here.

You know, I have made the mistake of pouring my heart, not naming names, but people still can figure out who I am talking about at the time. It's pretty scary too.

Great post!

I have to agree with you.

Sensitive people are a gift.

So...are you saying you're annoyed with me? (ha ha ha)

You're a better woman than me. I find it easier to tell annonymous people exactly how I'm feeling instead of the ones that really need to hear it.
