Where I'm Coming From

I thought I'd clear something up that has been hanging in the back of my head.

I realize that reading one or two of my blog posts individually may result in me being perceived a certain way.  If you don't really know me, and how I speak in real life, it might be a bit of corrosive reading for you.  I wanted to write a piece about where my head is at when I write these pieces, and hopefully my audience will be able to better understand my viewpoint and how the blog should be taken.

For me, writing is very therapeutic, especially when I hold nothing back whatsoever.  I like the idea that people are going to be shocked, surprised, inspired or humoured by what I have to say.  A friend of mine pointed out to me that it might be a better idea to have a journal to serve that purpose.  I don't know about you, but I have never been able to keep up with a journal, even though I've tried multiple times throughout my life (especially as a kid/teen).  It's pretty boring, for me.  There is something about writing publicly, and writing very raw and uninhibited that is satisfying and beneficial for me.  In addition to that, the pieces I've been writing are also very much ME, unfiltered.

I want my readers to see that each post reflects one of the many moods I possess.  I've gotten a slight bit of negative feedback about what I've written so far.  My first instinct was to become self conscious and possibly edit the posts, or reconsider how I've been writing.   However, I don't want to change the way I'm writing... I'm actually very happy with how it's been turning out, even though it might make me look superficial or bitchy sometimes.  Take it for what it is, and realize that I'm usually writing with a bit of sarcasm, sass and humour.

Besides, that's what makes it readable and exciting!  I'd like to encourage opinions here.


  1. There will always be negative feedback. Stay true to your purpose of writing and I personally am loving your level of honesty!

  2. I really enjoy reading your blog! I always appreciate meeting women who are able to speak their mind in a classy and polite way. After reading some of your blogs it makes me want to say, "I was thinking it, but YOU said it!". Keep speaking your mind girl!
