This 30 Days or Truth project has really had me thinking.
How much do I want to reveal?
How intimate do I want to get with y’all?
I’ve never held back before. My honesty has always been what has brought people to my blog and kept them here. Hell, it even brought me an agent. I don’t hold back. Like in life, it is all or none with me. It’s just how I am. Anything else feels phony. The truth is I’ve never really had a reason to hold back before now.
So,here I am actually debating whether or not I should hold back more and wonder if I will let insignificant people put a muzzle on me or if I will push on through. I don’t hold back because I care what they think. I hold back because I cringe at the thought of these people even looking at my site. It’s as if they come into my home uninvited, put their feet on my furniture, act repugnantly and then leave their stench behind. That’s not cool with me.
BUT… you knew there would be a but here….BUT, this is my house and I will not be someone I am not, hold back from something I want to say or act in any way that is not 100% me. That is a game for posers. Not one I play am willing to play with them or anyone else. I suppose I am lucky that this blog having been around since early 2003, I have never once felt the need to hold back. I haven’t had the trolls, the haters or the game players come around. I have been blessed.
And I will not go quietly. This is me. I ask just one thing:
If you don’t like my writing, don’t like me or don’t want to read this, go to that little X in the corner and leave. It’ll make all of us happy in the long run.
Am I right?
So I push forth…
