Which... where did that phrase come from anyways? For reals. Anyways.
5 Things I Won't Blog About
While I, along with other bloggers, try to be as authentic and real as possible, there are still some limits to what we'll write about.
1) Personal family and friend business.
We all have dirty laundry - but I'm not going to share it all with the internet. Even some of the clean laundry. One, it's not anyone else's business. Two, it's not always my story to tell. Even things that aren't bad, but are maybe sacred. I keep it in the family.
This seems to be one a lot of bloggers won't write about, which I'm glad for. First of all, I don't know much about politics enough to feel like I can talk about them. Second, I just don't enjoy discussing politics. There are so many different points of views and opinions and theories and philosophies, and I think most of them have valid points. But people tend to get really dirty and ugly when talking about it, and I feel like I have no business adding to the noise that is already out there. I try to stay informed, form my opinions, vote, and do my best to be a good citizen.
3) Insulting other people.
Yeah, I might have the occasional rant. However, being outright mean and dramatic about someone on the internet is just rude and inconsiderate.
4) Cooking and DIY.
Do any of you know me? I'm an awful cook (when I do share cooking on the blog, it's my disasters) and when I see DIY stuff on Pinterest my usual reaction is "I can just buy that at Target."
5) Ranting on other faiths and religions.
I'm not ashamed of my faith and how important it is in my life. People who know me know it's part of who I am, and even those who don't agree with me seem to respect it. However, I also never want to be a blogger who is in your face, preachy, putting down other people's beliefs, or anything like that. I will never be ashamed to say what I believe is true, but I also want this to be a place where people know I'll listen to their opinions. I want people to feel free to ask questions, discuss, and share what they think without the fear of being insulted and judged. Also - if I ever do say something which hurts someone else, it's not intentional, and PLEASE email me or send me a private message to tell me so. That way, I can correct my actions and not do it again.
What are some things you'll never put on the internet?
Today's Love Sighting:
This afternoon, preschooler John came up to me while in the gym. He said "Guess what? Did you know my dad is Superman????"
UGH melt my heart. And I'll tell you - this kid loves his dad. They're the most adorable pair I've ever seen in my life.
