This blogging thing has had me stumped for a while. The main goal of blogging is to have new content to draw people to my site to sell jewelry after all that is what I do. But then it also serves the dual purpose of allowing me an outlet to blab about whatever I have going on and those of you who know me know I like to blab about all kinds of random stuff. But sometimes I get all caught up in myself and how other people view me and the stuff that I write here, how it affects the perception of me and what the heck does spaghetti and meatballs have to do with bridal jewelry anyway???! And then I get stuck in my own head and don’t want to write anything here AT ALL.
But I have come to a monumental (not really, sometimes I tend to exaggerate a teeny tiny bit) decision. I am going to just start blabbing about everything again. I first started blogging/blabbing on the internet when I was planning my wedding and I became friends with other wedding obsessed brides to be and we all shared in the trials and tribulations of wedding planning. It felt safe because we were all blabbing about wedding stuff and our biggest decisions were blush vs. bashful. And even though at the time, we agonized over which way to go; if we chose blush our great Aunt Tootie might be offended and if we chose bashful our Mother would definitely not approve, the horror! But in the end, either way we chose, it was really not that big of a deal. I know, I can’t believe I am saying it out LOUD. But there it is.
The decisions I make today are a wee bit more difficult and have much bigger consequences so sharing them with the internets is much more scary. BUT I have come to the realization that I am only accountable to myself. Seems like SUCH a simple concept, but in reality very hard for me to put into practice.
So, in the words of the inimitable Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, ‘I feel like letting my freak flag fly.’;) ROCK ON.
