Microblog Mondays-Getting over the hump

I used to write all the time. I kept a journal from fourth grade through high school, going through at least one marbled composition notebook a year (and as a kid, I was ADAMANT that it was not a diary). In college I still found time to write about once a week. I journaled sporadically through law school and probably once or twice a year since then, but I managed to blog semi-regularly instead. Then life happened–law school, marriage, a cross country move, bar study, job hunting, a crazy stressful job. It’s ironic that the things that most improve our mental health (sleep, eating well, exercise, emotional/creative outlets) are the first things we drop in times of trouble. Last year I concentrated on my physical health but this year I want to feed my spirit. It starts here.

Master of my domain (name)

I think I’m just about ready to come out of the blogging closet. Although I’ve had this blog for a little over two years, I’ve never had any issues with harassing commenters or things of that nature. I don’t publicize it, but several of my real life friends have the link and nothing’s stopping them from sharing it. Shoot, even if they did, I’m not in the business of gossip and name calling so there’s no drama to be found. Besides, I can blog under my nickname and still preserve some googlenymity.

Anyway, I started this blog at a different point in my life. I’m still in transition, to be sure, but the title “Maybe So, Maybe No” doesn’t reflect my mindset anymore. I know what I want. I have the end goal in mind–I’m just trying to figure out how to get there. I am much more confident in my own voice and what I have to say. I’m not trying to get more attention, I just want to be represented. I read a lot of great blogs but none of them really represents more than one or two aspects of me. I’m proud of who I am and who I’m becoming, and I’m ready to claim it.

So, within the next month or so this will be merged into a new blog (with notice posted here beforehand, of course). Thanks for reading!
