Liar, Liar

Someone said to me, "Blog like no one will read it."  I thought about how that's great advice.  I don't really expect anyone to read my blog, it's so sweet and amazing to me that anyone does, but I can't totally blog like no one is reading.  Trust me, I've tried.   In response, I got criticism, complaints and even hate email *I'm not even kidding*.  No, it's not that I have very outlandish or weird opinions about things, it's just that I have strong opinions about things, and I have strong thoughts about things.

And I'm honest.
That get's me in trouble. 

So, I can't blog like no one is reading, but I can blog as honestly as possible. 

And that's a challenge in itself, because we all lie.  Not consciously, or intentionally, but we all do, even to ourselves.  Actually, especially to ourselves.  We lie to make things better, to make them bearable, to sugar coat, and to rationalize things to ourselves.  I think with total and complete honesty we would all soon have a breakdown.  Sometimes you need a good lie.  Sometimes I even believe it.

Quote of Today:
"Honesty is for suckers."

  1. LOVE the boots and LOVE the cardigan! You're just the cutest :)

  2. I actually do think this is great advice and even if you get some backlash, there are some people that would genuinely find your blog entertaining and inspirational. I write my blog like this, but you do have to have some restraint and consider expressing yourself while still being sensitive to others' opinions.

    Love your boots and I do love your blog. It is a great read!

  3. Thanks Frannie! I do try to be as "like no one is reading" as possible, but sometimes I think I censor myself too much because I'm afraid of the backlash. I've had some troubling experiences :(

  4. I love this post.
    I still think you should blog for yourself not for others.
    But I liked reading about how you say we sugar coat things for ourselves.
    I think reading that will make me look at myself more this year and make sure I am honest with myself too. ;)

  5. You and me both, mama, you and me both! If I blogged like no one was reading people's mouths would drop open and their eyes would bug out. That's why I write fiction!

  6. YOU got hate mail?! That's just crazy.


Let me know your thoughts!
