I went to a counselor (because I am a mess), and it’s her professional opinion that I consider blogging again. Apparently, if I don’t have an outlet like this blog for letting words leak through my fingers, I become a mess. And if I close myself off and don’t interact with friends via the blog, I become an even bigger mess.
(I’ve never been one for interacting with people much in real life. Way too introverted for that. But I like the whole online thing.)
So, I knew blogging and online interaction with folks helped to keep me sane. But it’s different hearing it from a professional.
But I do need to guard against the "all about me" mentality that blogging seems to encourage. And I need to not let blogging replace creative writing and personal journaling. So there are things to watch out for.
So anyway, I might start blogging again. That’s my big news.
Any big news in your life?
