Turns out, I'm an all-or-nothing kind of girl. This whole casual "I'll just post when I feel I've got something really good to say" didn't work out so well for me. Because guess what? Most times I don't feel I've got anything good to say.
Now the fact that I go ahead and post blogs may seem to contradict that. But really, in truth, every time I hit the ol' Publish Post button, I think to myself 'Yep..... and someone else probably has said that better.' (Usually it's Heather over at Extraordinary Ordinary.)

This is all to say that the blog is a way to talk to you, about the things we're all thinking about. The blog is a way to hear your response to my inner dialogue: a filter, if you will, to let me process my ideas and find out if they're just plain crazy talk. I thought, at first, that I only blogged for myself, just to get the thoughts out of my head. This week, though, it seems like a few of the posts have maybe rung true. I've had comments that thanked me for honesty, for calling out truth that maybe we'd rather not deal with.
Quite simply, this made me happy. I like that being honest, being plain-spoken, and being true to the voices in my head [ahem] reaches people, and generates a response.
So I'll keep posting. It's good to be back. It's good to hear from y'all. Keep it up, m'kay?
