What Have I Done?

Okay, what have I done?
I am accustomed to messing up. That's the way I function. At this point, I feel like I am asking myself, "Why Am I Here?". I already have one blog, Moonlight Hollow.  So why another blog? Originally, I started The Renaissance Chick so that I would have a writing outlet. I needed a blog which would allow me to be me.  Yes, I am me in Moonlight Hollow, but you know what I'm talking about...the other side of me...the side my Mother constantly reminds me to keep under control. 

So, how is the writing blog going for me? I post pictures with captions...only dipping my toes in the water. It has been so long since I revealed my inner self, I'm not sure if I can still tread water anymore. What if I bare my soul and sink straight to the bottom without anyone reaching out to pull me up for another lap? Or worse yet, what if I put it out there for all the whole world to see and the words cause no ripple and no one notices and I drown in my wordless thoughts? 

Then there is always the danger of offending. The me from years ago would never have thought twice about the offensive word. A woman with opinions will offend. Perhaps it has been my career for the last twelve years which has made me shy from stating my opinion loud and clear, but that career is over. The old me is clawing her way to the surface...tired of being suppressed and hidden away from judging eyes...tired of being discouraged from making the political statement which might offend.

I have decided that followers come and go, but those who support with an open mind are here to stay. Hang with me. I might find my voice.

Okay, first you are NOT going to drown because I personally will pull your sorry ass out of the water. And Malisa, only making a "ripple", please, give me a break, a ripple, wtf? Once you are you, I would say these so called "ripples" will be more like cannonballs with a big splash. You write what you want, and what you feel, and if someone doesn't like out there in cyberspace, so be it! We only get one chance to live our lives. . .wouldn't you prefer to do it without any regrets?

Put it all out there, girlfriend. That's what writers do. Yeah, sometimes we drown. Sometimes we don't. Just remember, you'll be famous after you die!

What have you done? You've followed an internal prompt to do this and now you get to be true to yourself and follow through! You have many people rooting for you, and many who also know how you feel. I think you'll be comforted and heartened by how many lovely people will respond when you speak from the heart. I will! xo, sallymandy

Yes, this is what blogging should be about, uncensored honesty. Really, it is for exactly this reason I started my second blog but it has morphed into a poetry blog mostly. But you know what, I write it and put it out there, because it feeds me. If a few others take a bite, then all the better. Do it for you. Your voice will come and those of us that care about you will be happy to partake!

You just say what is on your mind. I really enjoy reading your blog and this should be for your thoughts and feelings. Way to go.
