I think I need to start a new blog.



As in, another blog. I'd keep this one.

But one just isn't enough.

The problem with this blog is everybody knows about it. Which I love. But also? I hate it.

I crave anonymity.

I tried using my nickname for a while. Some of you might remember that. I only told my friends and sisters about my blog. I specifically did not tell certain people, because I did not want them reading it.

It didn't work.

Because people are nosy. And some will go to extreme measures to meddle in your life.

And I got in trouble.

I have so many funny and frustrating stories I want to share with you guys. But I can't. Because someone else has decided that they get to edit what I write.

And it drives me crazy.

See?

I need a new blog.

One that I can write about whatever I want. Kind of like Shell.

What do you think?

I always say, "don't dance like nobody's watching...dance like they are and you don't give a blankity-blank". You are not responsible for other people's happiness. That said, do what makes you feel comfortable.

I hope I'm not one of the crazies your trying to get away from!!! :(

Chantel said...

I agree with Donda. whatever makes you happy, and less stressed.

Was there another incident when they visited you guys?

Just Rhonda said...

I've thought about doing this for the same reasons. But if I did I think I'd just make a private one that very few people could look at :)

Awwww. I don't want you to censor yourself. I like your stories... they are real. Not sure what people would see that needs to be hidden. :( Just be true to yourself, that's all you can do.

As long as we all get to keep readin git! I understand, though...I'm worried about telling people I know about my blog because then I would have to be careful what I say. It's a tough call...

MommaFreebie said...

Oh no! Don't let the man bring you down. ;)

That being said, that really blows. I very much enjoy your writing.

maybe you get to a certain age and you stop giving a flip about what people think. We don't sensor ourselves and like it. Our idea is if you don't like, want to see it or want to know, don't look at our website.

Paul and Kerry said...

*censor. And I need spell check for commenting. duh.

Danielle said...

Honestly I think its a necessary evil, especially as you become a doctors wife. The world of medicine and suits and law are too wide open these days to say anything that can't be misinterpreted.

But how fun to totally reinvent yourself!

Hmmm maybe I'd be blonde next time around!:)

Kristen said...

I think the same thing all the time!

Go for it!

Helena I just did this with a new blog. I have to keep myself and my kids hidden from my parents. They can't know where we are living anymore and for safety reasons we made a new blog with our new move. Only certain people are allowed to look at the blog. Sometimes you have to feel safe. Make a new blog if you want for personal stories that you don't want the world to know about. Only let a couple of people know and ask them to not link up to it. Use this blog for your everyday musings. My blog is so important because it's my journal. I can't let bad apples ruin it for me. So yes, you have my permission :)

Adam and Jess said...

So is it the Kurt meister who's doing the editing? I feel like you're pretty funny, funny enough to tell Adam about you a few times. That's part of why you have so many followers.
I'm liking the color, and don't worry... it fades. How is "Abby"? ;) It stinks that you're going to be in primary now and I won't be able to hear some of your fun comments in R.S.

JoJo said...

I am so with you! I worked so hard building up my blog, but I can't write everything I would like to because of some families members reading it that make me feel uncomfortable. It's so frustrating. I don't know what to do!

Bonnie @ House of Grace said...

I can understand that! I wish I could pick which post some people can see. Good luck!
Bonnie :)

I'm in the same boat. My original blog was my home for years, but I have to give it up for security reasons related to my husband's job. I hate saying goodbye to my readers and starting over with a new secret identity, but it's the only way I can continue blogging. I think that you should do whatever feels right for you. Ultimately, blogging is an exercise in personal expression, so you should feel free to express yourself.

Shell said...

Oh, girl, I highly recommend it. It's not that I say anything that I think is really bad or trashing the people that I'm keeping it from, but it's just so freeing to be able to say whatever I want and not have to worry about someone then calling me about it or thinking that it's dinner conversation.
