But, many times, I don't write about these things.
I don't write about them because I like to use this blog as a release, but not to blast a lot of personal information. Kind of contradictory in a way, but it is what it is.
I don't write about them because my previous blog was shut down by my former superintendant when I voiced an opinion about a person they did not hire. The blog was found despite my lack of using my name or the school's name.
I wonder if I will be able to grow the blog without fully putting my identity out here for all. I wonder if I would have more consistent readers if I had more pictures of me and my family - if that would make me seem more real or something.
I wonder if people's comments would help me in solving some of the things I deal with if I was to write them on here. Or would the comments cause me to clam up and write even less of my personal information?
I have had posts where I put my views out there. I received some of my longest, most detailed comments on some of my viewpoints. Some of my views have been my most read posts, but didn't receive many or any comments.
Some of my recent posts have been my deeper thoughts, and people seem to respond well, but I don't always feel comfortable sharing these with people I know IRL let alone people I have never met and have only an internet relationship with. I do feel connected with more people on these here interwebs, though. I have regular readers, I have regular blogs that I read.
But, I just don't know.
I may continue to self-censor, or I may be more free. Time will tell.
This was my Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. The prompt was: "What are some things you wish you could blog about but can't?"
You can read about it and see links to other blog posts from today on all.things.fadra. If you want to try, it is quite simple... 5 minutes of just your thoughts. You can write on the prompt or just write whatever you are thinking at the time.
