Hey all (if anyone wants to read 🙂
Ha! Sometimes I am surprised that people read this blog or might want to , etc…so I get excited when people visit…nice 🙂
Initially when I started this up I had more intentions to display more meal creations, experiments, and pics…unfortunately I am not sure that is the best thing for me to do now. I think some of family members may know about the blog :(….not that there is anything entirely wrong with that – but I liked the idea of creating this blog as a “haven” of sorts. I wanted to have a place where I would express positivity and creativity alone….something “refreshing”, like a cool glass of chocolate beverage…
Honestly, if I were to bring more of my personal conflicts and stories into this, it might be a lot more interesting 🙂
But I hesitate to be too open and too “out-there”…although it is tempting to share and converse with others re experiences and thoughts. But for now, not so sure. Either way, my current issue is even with posting pics. I worry that if I post certain meals or items, I may be judged on the items….or stereotyped as eating a certain way or buying only certain things…and that would not be true. I feel that the pics I might show are only a corner of the larger picture of my eats. It just so happens that what I show is things that might interest you, are popular to the blog-o-sphere, new finds I have picked up and enjoyed, or just the easiest things to photograph :)….the latter being very true. Photo-taking and uploading is a full-time job when a girl just gotta eat!
So, I wanted to present you guys with a quick question: how open are you on your blogs? Do you like to share insights, stories, schedules, personal battles ? Or do you try to keep it real while just sticking to the fun eats and the light conversation? (I do read your blogs and get an idea, but just hearing what you feel your personal approach is might be good). Its always good to get others opinions….like when you find something new at the grocery store….
I would also like to use this blog as a medium to talk about a lot of the ideas that I am passionate about or interested in. Of particular interest to me is to highlight issues with depressions and eating disorders prevalent in society. I love reading about different health topics, latest studies, etc. Honestly, I debated about starting a new blog and leave one for my personal “talk” and the other for more of a journalistic approach. I like that idea, but I also feel that a person is a person is a person…and that it is easier to garner comaderie, followers, real “friends” …by being real, well-rounded….livin’ it up….like grabbing a some figs/raisins/dates/gogi berries and “dressing” them up real nice- like 🙂
I feel like there are a million of different topics I would like to chat about on the blog: mental health, healthcare, politics, books, entertainment….and maybe even a little bit of LIFE….so two blogs would work out quite well…but want to keep it real and all…so what are your thoughts??
As I said, I had considered starting a new blog…new name, to be unknown and to “tweak” my writing so that I would not be familar to lurking family members or others…but…when I thought about it some more I realized that in the end a person always ends up being who they are..sooner or later, the “person” shines through and you just cant hide it….
Apologies for the strange type of post today…just feeling this out….another last question: ever feel like you sometimes act or present or are a certain way that you do not like? I feel like my current situation in life has in a position where I do not really “like” – really “like” myself – and a result, I feel that others do not “like” me….
I want to like me.
So that is why this blog is for this positive spot and not for all the other hogwash that sucks life out of life.
Eat something good today guys 🙂
