I never know what to post

When it comes to blogging, I'm always torn.

I want to be an open book, but the things I want to write about most include someone else. Unless it's a happy thing, I don't think it's fair to them to share this intimate information.

Like today, I want to post about the emotional day I had, but it involves the relationship I have with my father.

I wrote about it in my journal, but it doesn't seem cleansing enough. I want to say it out loud (which I definitely count posting it on the internet as out loud), but again, I don't think it is fair to my father. It would be a one-sided story, although legitimately how I feel, but it may or may not paint him in a good light.

I've considered creating a whole new blog identity just to be able to post anything and everything, but I don't know if I'm willing to do the work to keep it anonymous.

Until then, I will have to continue to keep all the real posts to myself. No one will ever get to hear of my frustrations, embarrassing encounters, angry moments, or imagine me posting with tears streaming down my cheeks. That is unless you catch me at just the right moment in person. Then I'll be willing to let you into my world and attempt to communicate how I see the world.

uh-oh. This has given me a lot to think about. I write about other people all the time, I hope they don't mind, but I really hope they never find my blog.

Katie- You should become an author. I love reading your posts. Please write a book about something. I would read it. Others would too.

Katie--the amazing one, not your other friend named Katie. She's amazing, too, but not the same Katie as me-- said...

Thanks, Brittany. You'll be the first to know if I ever publish something.
Well, second. I'd know first.
Well, third. The publisher would know before I would.
Deal?
