What was the one experience that completely changed your life? What happened? How did it change your life?
This, here above, was what I got when I clicked on a link that said ‘inspire me‘ in the WordPress compose section. I could easily answer that question fully … I could write a long, and very heartfelt post about it. However, that once again brings up the question I sometimes struggle with here in the blogging world: how personal do I want to be? I’ve brought it up before, so I know many people feel the same way. In one way I want to write it — it’s so easy to get all warm and fuzzy in this little circle of bloggers, and forget it’s a public and only ‘semi anonymous’. Even though it may feel as if you “know” all these people that you’ve been ‘blogging with’ for several years … well … you just don’t. Not until you’ve met them in real life [did you know that ‘real life’ is being referred to as “meat space” online?! LOL], and even then it takes long time.
I’ve read so many, really personal blogs, and enjoyed them tremendously, but at this point, I just can’t seem to do it myself.
Now, that said, it may sound as if I have some very dark secrets in my past, which is not really the case. It’s just that when you open up about something personal — it’s then you become vulnerable. I’ve done it, and regretted it deeply afterwards.
Sooo … now that I’ve written all that, I will not write about that evening, back in 1970 … when the voice inside my head kept shouting «No, no, NO!!!» and I went against it.
