I have friends that write blogs and they post links to them on Facebook when they have uploaded a new post - which I really appreciate because then I know to go over and take a look. But they are writers and I am not. But, I have been pondering doing the same thing. I can probably count on my one hand how many know that I am writing this blog and on three fingers could name the people that are actually reading it!!!! I didn't start this in hopes of driving people to a site to read all about my adventures with my kids - but now that it has evolved in to more of a chronicle of my healthiness journey it seems maybe there might be more interest. But, the thought of a bunch of people reading this kind of scares - I can't lie. And I don't really write to an audience - well, I guess I sort of do - I write as if I am talking to this group of people who are on the edge of their seats waiting for the next post from me - but in reality I know that is not the case it's just the way I like to tell my story. Nerd...I know!
I think about my parents reading it and wonder what they would think - especially with my dad being a writer - he would probably faint at some of my grammar usage, etc - but the nice thing is he would not tell me, he's nicer than that! But I also think it may be a good way for the people in my life to really know how I am feeling - obviously the people close to me know I am losing weight - I tend to remind them a lot! It's something that I am proud of - I am working hard and I love that people notice and tell me how great I look - that is pure motivation to keep going!
My nagging thought on the whole subject is that maybe I just need to put myself out there and tell the masses about what I am doing and let them decide - no one has to read it or even be interested - but if ONE single human being wrote my musings and decided that they were ready to make a change because of what they read here, well, to me that would be worth it, right? Right!
So, when I hit publish on this post I am going to go over to Facebook and link for the first time to my personal blog. For better or for worse this is me and right now I am feeling pretty good about who that person is so why not share her and possibly gain some more inspiration to keep going and to fight the good fight!
