I'm not beating myself up over my blogging style. Really. It's fine. It just looks so easy when other people write articles instead of rambling, so I think, I can do that!

The attitude came from my upbringing, of course. If something needed to be done, Mom did it. Fixing cars, chopping wood, raising gamecocks--Mom just jumped right in and made it happen. She taught herself how to make bumper stickers, to silk-screen t-shirts, to write, to reload shotgun shells for her husband, to cast sinkers on the kitchen stove, and so much more. Whatever she learned, so did I. She said to me over and over, "Well, you could do that. Doesn't ______ sound like fun?"

So I have the idea that I could do anything. I've only recently learned that while I could do almost anything, I'm not actually suited to all those things I've tried. Like choreographing a high school show choir. Or writing confession stories. Or being a housewife. Or selling things on

So the thing is, I have to try things out to see if they suit me. Otherwise, how will I know? You know?

This post went in a completely different direction than I planned. Which is my style, and I embrace it!

  1. You've learned a number of interesting things growing up, and that attitude of try it you might like it probably has worked well for you as an adult. but yes, that point about things suiting you is so important. Embrace your blogging style!

  2. Embrace that style! Embrace it one of those drunk, bar-is-gonna-close-soon, booby-squishing, hip-grinding, breath-on-the-neck, tickle-the-nape kind of hugs!

    You go girl!! WOOOOO!

  3. Your blog is...yours. You can do whatever you want with it - why follow these supposed rules when really this is supposed to be your own space?
    This place is lovely - don't change things and make yourself resentful...

  4. You have to try on a lot of black dresses to find the one that's just right on you. :)

    As Darc used to say if I bought something new, "Fashion show, fashion show!"

    Show us what'choo got!

  5. I'm not sure it really has worked for me. I spend a lot of time doing stuff I don't really care about.

  6. Thank you for the encouraging words, Princess. :)

  7. You've already seen it a million times, silly. LOL

  8. Well, you seem willing to try new stuff, which is a plus compared to many! But if you are stuck doing things that don't 'float your boat' you can omit them, gradually, from the chores list of life. (Nothing wrong with more time to read, write, do fun stuff...)
