Blogging on Blogs
So I have become kind of a blog junkie I read a blog about wedding stuff and I read a blog about foodie stuff I have a few friends who post blogs that I read regularly I even read the blogs of strangers who I don’t know but for some reason they have said something I find profound and desire to revisit their blog for additional moments of profound musing. Sometimes I feel bad like I’m prying into the personal lives of strangers or worse my dearest friends… but I try and soothe my fear with the fact that its posted there for everyone to see and advertised in a “Hey go read my blog” kind of way…. Another thing that’s weird is comments I love when my blogs are commented Its like Wow someone is actually taking the time to care about what I have to say… I’m sure everyone feels that way about comments tho I admit I am not a faithful commenter… So I’ve been thinking lately about writing or starting my own blog apart from myspace where I could write on a more consistent basis. I’m presently going thru a kind of rite of passage in life. I’m engaged to be married I’m planning a wedding my brain my heart my mind is disconnecting from my old life in many ways and being reshaped into the brain, heart and mind of a wife. I feel it would be beneficial if for no one other than myself I were to preserve these thoughts and what not so maybe when I’ve been married for 50 yrs I can look back shake my head and laugh and my immaturity and naiveté. Maybe I’ll be proud of myself haha who knows. The point is… So many wonderful things are happening in my life in my relationship with Steve in my relationship with the Lord. I just feel compelled to catalog it. For Christmas my mom bought me this cutesy sweet Bride’s journal. My mom apparently thinks I should be cataloging the events and my take on the events in my life at the moment also. I have a hard time being a pen to paper kind of girl however for me it is much easier to let the thoughts streams out of my head and thru my fingers… I’m so blessed I can’t type as fast as I think J I can’t count on every blog being about how much I love or hate Steve or life in general at any given moment. It could be about food… (a huge passion of mine) It could be about faith… It could be about my family… a funny story from life… It could be me being a bridezilla or the blushing excited girl who’s been planning a wedding since she was 5. This really is a remarkable time in my life and it deserves to be commemorated for posterity sake… If for no other reason so my own daughters can read thru it and laugh when they’re in the same stage of life. I haven’t ever faithfully kept a journal or even an online diary for a tremendously long period of time but I’m only going to be engaged for another 9 months… I could probably manage that… It’s a shorter commitment than marriage that’s for sure. So while my writing maybe disjointed and lack structure and real substance I will have a place to record my life my journey the path God has placed ahead of me in preparing to be Steve’s wife….
