In light of a recent comment by reader Gleno – which I totally appreciate, by the way – I thought I should post my response. Why? So you all can get a sense of where I’m coming from and so I won’t have to explain it a billion times over in the future.
Hi, Gleno — thanks for your advice. I appreciate it. I’ve been trying to incorporate more of my life into my blog rather than always talking about love. But I did start this blog with the intention of it following my search for love. Trust me, I don’t go around talking love 24/7 in my real life, which is why I feel so comfortable and free to do it here. Maybe it’s been over-the-top, but I want to get my story out there. I chose to focus this blog on merely one aspect of my life; it is by no means the be-all and end-all of my existence.
Hope you’ll keep reading. 🙂
Thoughts? I’m having trouble wrapping my head around the criticism that a love blog focuses too much on love…maybe you can enlighten me?
Update: I understand what you all are trying to say, but I’m not making this blog as some silly little mockery blog in cyberspace. This is my honest, bare, stripped-down authentic story of my life, my thoughts, my hopes, my dreams, and most importantly, MY reality.
If you think I merely write about trivial topics, I haven’t. I’ve written some pretty intensely honest things on here, especially regarding my father’s suicide. My story may not always be a happy one, and of course it’s not a normal one – whatever normal is anyway – but it is a real one. That’s what I’ve strived for since day one. I’m going to continue to tell me story and be honest. You know you’re always invited along for the journey.
