Can You Blog If You Are A Private Person?

createherstock-a-summer-day-neosha-gardner-3I know. Why am I making this so difficult? I am looking at why I have a hard time blogging my thoughts without editing myself first.  I started thinking, while I was trying to go to sleep, can I blog if I’m a private person? Part of blogging is sharing some of yourself with others in order to be genuine.

I know there has to be a way to say something but not share all your life. I’m working on this so I can feel good about blogging and not editing myself. I think if I can come up with a theme that is more specific vs. just my life, I can do it!  We shall see I guess.

What are your thoughts? Can you be a blogger if you are private? Please share your thoughts.

Life As I know It!


Making A Commitment Without Edits

createherstock-a-summer-day-neosha-gardner-5As I think about this blog space, I struggle with how much of my life to share. I think if I’m not willing to share myself and be transparent, what am I doing blogging? But I keep being drawn to writing and this blog space is where I want to practice my writing while exploring different things. But what I realize is when I think about something I want to write, I start editing what to say.

As a writer how do you get past this? I would like to hear your suggestions on how to get my creativity going and not edit myself before I even type one word.



Happy New Year Everyone!


Hi Everyone, I know I have been gone from my blog for quite a while. Life happened and I just couldn’t get things back on track to blog. I’m hoping this year I can write more and be more expressive about the things I’m struggling with, trying to change and get better at doing.

My phrase for this year is “Be Creative, Ever Evolving and Visible.” I hid last year because I just couldn’t get my feet steady. I was working and changing my magazine to a newspaper, taking care of my mother and trying to be a good wife. Whew. I decided to just pull away and stay close to home and do what I do. But I know I need get out and be a part of the world and live a bit.

I wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope 2018 will be your best year.

Talk again soon!
