Writing a blog is sometimes a complete balancing act. On one side are the thoughts and challenges racing through my brain, while close beside lies the desire to not offend or alienate people. There is a constant tight rope act going on, with some posts more than others.
Most of what I write stems from conversations I have had, or something I have read. So as to keep each post short enough for a reader to get through in one sitting, there are details and events I will leave out. Plus, some circumstances just do not need to be in print. Or, if a situation is unresolved, well, venting on a blog will not change a darn thing.
I love to write, and there are even some days I feel I am pretty good at it. Other days, many days, I am quite certain I fail miserably. However, that is the risk and responsibility I take every time I hit the publish button. With each post I publish, I am accepting the fact not everyone will see the bigger picture of what I write, not everyone will agree, and some may take offense.
I try to write in a broad, general sense. There are always exceptions to the rule. Should I keep blogging or not? Sometimes I wonder. I wonder if what I am saying makes any difference at all, and with few comments and followers, is there a point? I have not yet come to that conclusion.
All I do know is that I am doing the best I can to walk the tight rope without falling to one side of the other. To those of you who read, thank you.
