Sometimes I really wonder how much I should share on here. What is too much and what isn’t enough. To be quite honest, I really don’t share much at all about me, per-se, on this blog. I’m not sure if it’s because I find it not to be the forum or because I generally tend to not tell everyone, or anyone, my business.
It’s nothing personal, it’s just how I’ve always been. Some things lead to questions and most days, I just don’t want to answer them and I’ve never been one to enjoy pity from others or shock on their faces.
But lately, I’ve been distracted with my thoughts. Not general thoughts, but thoughts about something I’ve never shared here because a) it isn’t funny and b) honestly does anyone like me when I’m not funny? It’s just not fun to go to a blog and read about all kinds of serious malarky.
That being said, if I don’t post now and then these next couple of months, it’s because I can’t think of anything funny to say. Moreover, next week I should have some good shit up here. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
I always wonder if I should talk about the things that aren’t exactly fun or happy on my blog. over the past few months i have decided to be a bit more honest and not all sparkly and pretty. i don’t delve into the nitty gritty (since I don’t want to depress people) but I do talk about my struggles now and then.
I think either way – it is your blog, you should do what you want to do. screw the people who don’t like you when you are funny. and honestly, i doubt that will be the case.
It’s all a such a balancing act, you want to share personal bits so readers can get to know you but don’t be a whiney witch because who likes a debbie downer!?!? I have so many personal things I would love to share with hopes that it could help someone else going through similar issues but do people read blogs because they are lighthearted and not serious or because they want to know they are not alone and there is someone like them out there orrrrr is it just because we all need a break from the tedious work day???
I still like you a real lot when you are not funny. 🙂
I know people still do it, but it’s ridiculous for people to think that blogger’s lives have no sort of sadness in them because all they post is funny and sparkly and perfect(ly photoshopped). In the end, it’s entirely up to you how much you decide to share if you do at all. But no matter what, I’ll always come back to see what you’re doing because I love you and this blog. It’s the bomb diggity.
funny or not, i’ll still like you! and i think it’s really, really important to talk about serious malarky. on the blog or in real life. so you know where to find me if needed.
I’m a relatively new reader but your blog has quickly become one of my favorites, and while I was pulled in because you are funny, I’m just as interested in hearing about your serious malarky as I am your hatred of Taylor Swift. I like when people “get real” on their blog, as I feel like you get to know them better. Regardless of what you share, I hope everything is okay over these next few months 🙂
Sharing stuff is really hard for me too. Sometimes I’m like why do I even blog if I’m not going to put myself out there and actually share things about my life. I personally think the heartfelt posts are the greatest with an adequate amount of funny to balance it out obviously.
