A Dilemma

So here is the dilemma that I have had in the back of my mind for quite some time. I am not a writer like some others I know. I have read some blogs where the writer sounds like he/she comes right from a devotional book. I have read some others that absolutely had me in stitches the entire time I was reading it. I have read some where I have to admit that I just "sped read" my way through and went on my way. I have even read some that I kinda felt bad because the writer was bashing their significant other like there was no tomorrow.

One of the reasons that I started a blog in the beginning was because I felt like I needed a way to express myself in my own unique way. Another reason was so that I could just post some pictures and events and happenings in my family for far away family members. But - since my big move a little over a year ago, I have kinda lost my way when it comes to posting pictures of things going on. I really don't like to take pictures that much anyway and so I put myself on a guilt-trip for doing a blog without pictures.

So - the dilemma?? Do I just keep blogging whenever I have the time and if I have pictures I post them and if not, too bad for the readers? Do I blog what I really think about some things or do I just keep my mouth shut (which is pretty hard for me)?? Do I keep this blog going and then start one that is private and just post my "horrible" thoughts there? If I don't have time for this one, how can I do another one? And another thing, I have to be careful what I blog about so as to not be offensive to people. I really have no desire to blog about things that will cause my husband grief since he runs into people all the time while he is out traveling that tell him they read my blog! What to do? Oh what to do??

That is my big dilemma where this blog is concerned. If I really have that many readers out there, maybe you could post your comment and let me know what you think. Which brings me to my request - if you are a private lurker, would you be so kind as to send me an email and tell me who you are? Its just the curious part of me! I look forward to reading your responses!

I hear ya Leah, I sometimes feel that FB is the "new" blog world, but blogs seem to be more personal, to me. I also want to post OH SO MUCH more than I do, but...don't want to "stir the pot" so, I figure I'd better keep quite. On the other, hand, there are others that don't seem to have a problem doing so, LOL! I say keep it going so at least Angie and I will have something to read when everyone else has left the blog world, hee hee!

Secret Lurker here hidden in the shadows. I attended HSBC 90-95 and believe I found your blog through Mary Ellen's blog. I know Christa from when she was a wee thing when Martha, Susan and I went to HSBC. I enjoy your witty sense of humour and sometimes blunt honesty about life. I've never found anything here offensive. Keep up the blogging.

Nah! You, Leah Fulton, have "horrible" thoughts?! It cannot be so. ;)
Blog if you want, when you want, what you want. Nobody has to read if they don't like it.

We always read your blog. It is listed on our blog and we have a program that tells us how recently each of our friends' blogs are updated. So we are notified when to take a look at yours. We also have "feedjit live traffic feed" on our blog. It doesn't tell who is looking, but we can tell people are looking, even though comments are rare. If you added it to your blog, you could tell where people are looking from and that is encouraging. We always enjoy knowing what is happening in your life and family, so please don't quit!

Hi, I love reading your blog, I found it through another blog. My son is a Marine and is deploying Saturday to Afghanistan. I think you should continue to be yourself, and I find nothing offensive in your blog. I would email you and introduce myself but I don't know your email address.
