Having a Voice


I’ve found that starting a blog has been somewhat cathartic. Which is satisfying since that is what I needed from it. Someplace to voice my thoughts & feelings, whether anyone read them or not. However, it is nice to get some recognition that I exist and that some people might enjoy and/or connect with what I put into words and pictures.

I prefer the anonymity so that I can have the freedom to say what I feel without A) having to explain or defend myself to people who may know me and B) having to monitor myself to keep from hurting said people’s feelings. Not that I’m going to target any individuals but things get taken the wrong way and there you go.

Although I’m basically still an embryo in this blogging thing, I’m enjoying it and I’m glad I decided to try it. I’ve read a lot of thoughtful  posts and commented back & forth with some very interesting people. Blogs are a voice and a lot of people are speaking.

  1. That is part of why I started my own blog, I always have things going on in my head that I want to get out but usually talking to people … They seem to think everything is about them specifically even if I tell them it is a generalization. I get tired of repeating myself, it kind of drives me mad.


    1. Exactly. I don’t want to have to deal with that. If someone in the blogosphere doesn’t like what I say, or doesn’t understand, I can explain or we can go our separate ways. It’s not that easy if the person is in your “real” world.

      1. Well, for me it is easy. I’ve had to cut my loses with quite a few people sadly… The one I wrote about racism, the person I was talking about was a friend… Had been a friend for … 3 years. I was really disappointed, and they were the one who initiated us not being friends because my views differed from her own.

  2. You are right we do have similarities. Blogging since last June has really helped me with my Chemo Brain – I also went through a long period thinking that I am useless, and although this does not bring any bread to the plate. People’s kind words have restored my confidence – Like being back at college I am improving every week. I hope it does the same for you – shall follow you from now on.

    1. Ugh. Chemo Brain. I thought I was losing it (my brain function) before but now it’s lost and I can’t find it. LOL!
      I understand what you mean about feeling useless. It’s really hard when you can’t do the things you normally do and you have to depend on someone else. It’s good to hear that you’re improving every week! That makes me smile. Thanks for the follow and I’m following you too!
