Every January 1st, I get the nearly irresistible urge to start a project, something… ’cause when better than the FIRST DAY of a BRAND NEW YEAR? And this year is no different. Except that it’s worse because I got it into my head to start a new blog. Which normally wouldn’t be so bad, but for one small fact. I already have a blog. One that I love. One that I’ve maintained (almost regularly) for more than two years. That’s a long time! Especially considering I’ve had other blogs in the past that didn’t fair so well.
But, recently, the blog and I have gone more public that I ever intended. And it’s not quite sitting as well as I had hoped. And, for a long while, I’ve tried to accept it, deal with it, move on… (it was, after all, my own fault for outing myself), but I find I’m stifling myself more and more. And the more I stifle myself, the less “at home” I feel. And that’s just not cool, man. Blogging is and has been my outlet. If I can’t talk openly about my impending divorce and unrelenting obsession for Edward Cullen, then why bother blogging at all?
So, despite much uneasiness, I’m throwing in the towel. It’s a new year. Maybe it’s time for a new blog. (I’m still not entirely sure.) But Happy New Year, anyway.
