Opening the shades

I didn't plan on taking a 6 month break from blogging, but somewhere along the way the TMI queen in me died.  When I first set up my blog in December 2010, I gave the address to a bunch of friends and acquaintances, hoping they would be my first readers.  As 2011 rolled on, I realized I wanted my blog to be anonymous so I could write about whatever I wanted, without the hesitation of how that post might impact my in-person relationships.  For example, I'd like to talk about my deep appreciation for 50 Shades of Grey without having to explain it to my mother-in-law.

So here I am with a new name and address, excited to be free but a little lonely too.  I had to leave my follower list behind and it feels weird being the new girl again.  Still, I'm glad to be back.


  1. I was just thinking the same thing about my blog...wishing it was more anonymous...but I'm too scared to lose my peeps. I already have abandonment issues :)

    PS: I can't find a spot to follow you on here...It's probably staring me right in the face, I can be stunned like that. haha

  2. It is definitely a freedom to write with no one knowing you.

    I have gotten more people I know to read my blog, and I sometimes feel like I need to hold back now.


  3. I just came over from the other post to know the 411. I'm the same. Mine is anonymous to my family and friends. I need it that way.


Lend me some sugar!
