Seriously? Another blog?

Yes, its true. This is #9 or #10 blog for me. Seriously. They all aren't up and running or updated frequently enough, but they do exist. So why another one? Well let me tell you. When I started my very first blog 5 years ago, it was all about my family. My babies mostly. I would write how I felt, the funny things they did, our adventures. Pretty much it was my online journal. I said what I wanted. Then my family started blogging. It was a way to update each other about our lives whether we lived minutes from each other, or states away. Then friends found my blog and they started blogging too. Now don't get me wrong, I heart the blogging community like no other, its fantabulous. But I started to lose the reason to why I was blogging in the first place. Worried who was reading, or not reading. Worried about the lack of comments. Worried if I would lose people if I didn't update often enough. Worried about what I was saying and if those IRL approved. I began to lose the enjoyment of journaling and felt more like something I had to do because others were expecting it. I started to get real surfacy with my posts. We did this or that and threw a few photos in there. How boring is that?

I don't want this blog to be a family and friend update on my life. Sadly, I think blogfacetwittertext have caused a wedge in family and friend communication and they have lost the personal aspect that makes us human. No one picks up a phone anymore. We get our updates on the internet -so why talk to each other anymore? (Thats a WHOLE nuh-tha post)

So there you have it. This isn't an undercover- secret blog. I don't care if people I know have found it. I am not going to link it to my other blogs. But its going to be around, commenting here and there, making a new little pixel among the million others. Its going to be my spot to talk about what I want. If its discovered and bloggers want to read it, great. Then they will come back because of who *I* am, not because I am writing for who I *think* I should be.

Just don't take me seriously.
