blogs and truths

Ive been struggling the last two weeks with some pretty personal health issues. Issues that have left my blogging mojo pretty frayed. Its been hard for me. I blog because i like to write, its my diary. It started this way, just for me. It was a genuine shock when i recieved my first comment and it dawned on me that people actually might pass my way! I know. Doh. Its a public blog... Im bog into honesty, i like to tell it like it is and i like others doing the same. Im a no holds kinda girl. Not much shocks me , not much scares me but i also wear my heart on my sleeve. So its been hard for me to keep these issues away from the blog but becasue they are so personal im just not sure how much to share; to open myself up for public comment...maybe not quite so ready for that right here, right now despite my intense desire to just spill. So, Im just going to say, bear with me while we get back on our feet; i'll take the pressure off myself and hopefully when the clouds have lifted, I'll be back with the old mojo in tow.

Hey, take whatever time you need. It's hard with blogs because anyone/everyone can read them and some things just aren't quite right for shouting out to the world! I have a group of close friends that I email in that situation.

hugs Kel, don't let the thought of comments/readers become a burden; this is your blog and it needs to give energy to your life, not to take. Perhaps you could remove the comment function for a while? I wish blogger had a function for private posting like LJ b/c I'd use it for sure. Take care of yourself and do what you need to do xxx

Sounds like old 'technology' might be required: telephones, hugs, being physically with people that care about you. Hang in there!

I find hugs are almost always the best way to deal with anything upsetting... regular doses melt the emotional pain away, making the physical far easier to handle.

Be kind to yourself.

I know what you mean about losing the blogging mojo. It's hard to write when you're absorbed with something you feel you shouldn't write about.

Gavin said...

Take care Kel. Take you time and begin again on your own terms.

As a blogger on spring break let me tell you it's actually quite wonderful. Well, once I got over the initial withdrawal jitters it was wonderful. I even have a bit of spark to come back. I'm so glad. Whatever you do take good care of yourself and know that good wishes are coming your way from Northern CA.

Remember, blogging is not an
obligation! Come back to it
when you feel ready.

Will miss your great sense of humour Kel.
Enjoy your break.

seems like you have some fans out there in the blogosphere. i can see why. what a relief to find your blog and read about a real person with all the foibles and eccentricities that are dished out to us. i am so sick of the perfect, crafty, yummy-mummy, home-schooling, running gorgeous successful businesses from their perfect, clutter-less homes! well done, kel.
kind regards,
kate

Kel said...

thanks for all your kind words everyone. Im the kind of person who once i start something i find it very difficult to change course, i usually complete. So to stop blogging when i set myself a daily blog challenge was HUGE. Sad i know. As kale says, its a jittery thing for some reason. Ahh the psycho-social issues of the blogger.

I know exactly what you mean, have had very similar experiences with blogging myself.

Anyway, I think this was a terrific way to handle it - acknowledging what you're going through but keeping your privacy intact. Take care.

I like breaks. I need them. Just got back from our trip away and I still haven't really gotten my blogging boots on. It's been a week since we returned. LOL

Follow your needs. That's what it's all about. (((((hugs)))))) Hope you are feeling better soon.

Lots of love,
Karin
