I sometimes meet readers face-to-face at an event or function. Many of them ask why I keep this journal on-line, especially the more difficult or personal aspects of my life. I don’t share about every aspect of my life, currently I don’t blog on the details of the legal skirmishes of the succession wars. I don’t want to give too much away to the Geezer or The Wicked Step Mother.
It’s about relationships. Will I make money from my readers? Not in any way I can see clearly enough to pursue right now. Someday I may write a book or three. But I am not pursuing that at the moment.
I’ve made some great friends online (who are currently sadly neglected because of the insanity of my life). Those friendships were created and nurtured by sharing a bit of who I am and what I believe.
In years to come who knows what good and bad things may come from putting this out there. But I’m sure the good will outweigh the bad.
In the meantime this blog is the best way I know to reach out and connect with people.
Of course I could just be a raving megalomaniac who didn’t get enough love as a child and wants lots of affirmation from strangers. Scary thought.
