«Are you holding yourself back?» was the question in the Daily Blog over at WordPress.
Yes. Yes I am … and I’ve had this ‘discussion’ before in this blog. To find a healthy balance between being really personal and being … plain shallow — it’s a very fine line. Last night I spent some time reading what other people had to say on this topic and I found that a lot of them felt exactly the same way as I.
There are times … quite often … when I would like to really write about something, but feel that it’s way too personal. What’s holding me back is the fact that there are people who know me in real life that might read this blog. Also, it could turn into a diary.
It’s not like I want to whine … I don’t have anything to whine about and nobody likes a whiner anyway … but there are other subjects that I don’t want to touch upon because of the above. I want to write from my heart, and that’s what I’ll try to do … as best as I see fit… in this blogging journey Daily Post 2011.
The urge to write is something that I seem to have in common with most of the bloggers. I’ve had it since I was a kid. Taking part in this challenge feels good … the the mornings, like now, when I bring up the «New post», I’m looking forward to it regardless of whether I have a topic clear in my head …. or not.
In my younger years, I was an avid writer … letters, diaries …but never aspired to become a writer, and not now either. That may have to do with my outlook on myself, lack of self confidence or something … I’m not doing psycho analysis here. I just loved the feeling of spilling my innermost feelings and thoughts in my little notebooks. Then the Internet came around and now it feels like my blog is my little notebook … my nook on the web. Writing for me is pure fun … not the chore it could become if you do it for a living.
