At first, I started this blog because I love writing, and wanted to stay in practice. Quickly though, I began to compare what I was doing to what I was seeing other bloggers do, and so I became insecure. Then, a few biting comments made me unsure if putting my private thoughts on a public forum was such a good idea. The icing on the cake was a heartfelt e-mail from a colleague explaining that one of my posts had sincerely hurt her feelings. Ugh. I felt like a jerk. And I was one.
So then, I retreated completely. I thought I’d either have to turn this blog into a catalog of everything cool I was doing, cooking, wearing, and buying (which would probably amount to about one post), or I needed to stop. So I stopped.
But here I am, back again to write. But this time, I’m not really here to blog about my crazy job. I’m not here to show you pictures of the great meal I just cooked. I’m just going to write. We’ll see what happens.
