What I Want

I know, it's been ages since I've written anything. I don't even know if anyone actually reads this anymore but there is a reason I haven't been writing. Like my twin, I got caunght up in what I thought this blog should be and not what I wanted it to be. I never promised this blog would be entirely about poker and I never promised it would always be a nice happy blog. Truth is, I started feeling like I couldn't write about what I wanted to write about. I felt like I needed to please others instead of myself. It's the story of my life really, but that's another post for another day.

Back in December, I had a conversation that left me feeling like I couldn't write about the deep, dark stuff anymore. Basically this person said that some of my posts seemed a little too personal and dark and that maybe I didn't need to publish everything I wrote. So, I stopped writing about the things I wanted to write about and eventually stopped writing almost completely. The dark stuff is part of me and this blog is my way to vent. If I can't vent about the bad parts of my life, then what's the point?

The thing is, this is my blog and I need to be able to write whatever I want without worrying how others are going to react. So, here's the deal, if you start reading something and it turns you off, stop reading it. If you read something and it worries you, send me an e-mail, IM me, or give me a call. I'll either reassure you or cry on your shoulder but I'm not going to sugarcoat my life just because it may make some people uncomfortable.

Does this mean I'm going to write more often? I have no idea but when I do write, it's going to be about whatever is on my mind, good, bad, or ugly.

WOW... Some people blow my mind. This is YOUR blog, girl. Write what YOU want. If others are bothered by your writings, there's an "unsubscribe" button for that. Geez - an even better option would be to lend an ear and some support when you're going through tough times - not berate you for being too "dark and personal" on your blog.

If you ever need to vent (deep, dark, or otherwise), you know where to find me. Post on!

I'm still here, and I don't give a shit what you write. If I want to read all sunshine and daisies, I'll, um, find other friends, probably. Cause most of mine are sarcastic and grumpy types. Birds of a feather and all that.

Anyway, if anybody doesn't like what you write, they ain't gotta read it, so do your thing.
