It’s great advice. Advice I already knew but needed to hear again (and still need to hear again and again). Advice that has kept me from posting plenty of things here on my blog.
“Have someone–who is not your blog–share your heart with.”
I’m an introverted writer. The loudest way I process is with a pen on a piece of paper. A lot of those thoughts could be turned into good blog posts.
If I could blog some version of everything I write, my life would be easy.
But I can’t.
I can’t tell you all things that I haven’t told my real-life friends.
I can’t let strangers on the internet know more about me than the people I see every day.
Which means sometimes I must be silent here.
(No, I’m not going on a blog sabbatical).
Do you have someone in real life you share thoughts and concerns with before you share with your blog readers? If not, what’s preventing that kind of relationship?
