One of Those Days

Turbulent emotions, but sometimes I just don’t feel like sharing anything as it just seems too self-indulgent and making myself open to criticism for not being grateful for what I have. Perhaps it why my blog is so ‘food heavy’ lately. I hope you like the food posts though – will be happy if they are useful in some way.

I also often wonder, am I sharing too much and will there come a day when I will regret it? Just my paranoia about the internet. My partner is super cautious about the internet. He can’t even be found if you google his name. Doesn’t have Facebook either. Perhaps that is the smart thing to do, but I just can’t keep away from the interwebs. In spite of the negative people who drag you down, there are some really nice ones who keep me motivated to write.

Here are some brand new friends I’ve ‘met’ online and you should check out their blogs. They are always so sweet and encouraging. There are some trolls out there that make me so tired and want to give up blogging (and wonder what I do it for) but these sweet ladies plus all my long time blog & twitter buddies like Crystal, Pam, Katrijin keep me going with their positivity and always leaving thoughtful comments (can’t state enough how much I appreciate comments because I know it takes a lot of time and effort). I’m leaving out tons of great people – please check out the blogroll.

    Hey! It’s ok to feel down once in a while, and don’t feel bad about putting it on your blog because it is your space after all, who cares about the trolls, they are called trolls for a reason. :p

    I sometimes also wonder about sharing too much but I guess as long as it’s not something untrue or of a flaming nature (since it is about ourselves anyway so i guess not), it is ok.

    Thanks for your link! Hope you will feel better soon! 🙂

  3. ooohhh, this really lightens up my day!!! Thank you so much, you have no idea what your post means to me right now… I’ve had an emotionally difficult week and I haven’t even blogged about it because it’s been so confusing. In the evening I am so tired that I just neglect my writing and that makes me even more sad. So blogging hasn’t been very rewarding either, leaving me with this insatisfaction. But now, reading my name on your post – that’s a real highlight! Thaaaank you! 🙂
