I am Not my Blog

Published November 18, 2010 - 0 Comments

I was reading a really interesting post the other day on a blog that I had never been to before.  I like to look at some of the local Tweeps and see what people are up to.  Sometimes I stumble across something interesting.  This was one of those times.

The author compiled a list of 130 things about her (I guess to go with the 130 things she wants in a man, posted earlier).  As I started to read through her list of facts, I saw several that I could have written word for word.  And then something else caught my eye…

#91 I am not my blog.

I’ve actually never considered this concept before, but it’s absolutely true.  My blog is an expression of something that I am feeling at the time I am writing it… but it’s not really who I am.  It’s a snapshot of something I am thinking about at a particular point in time.  It’s certainly not the whole picture.  And like everything else in life, it changes constantly.  Some things may remain static, but in general, it’s a flowing mosaic of thoughts, feelings, emotions, dreams and memories.

Sometimes we read too much into the writings of others.

Sometimes we don’t read enough.

But I love what the author wrote, and I agree with her completely.

I am not my blog.

Feel free to read the entire list here.  I’m slowly compiling my own, and hope to have it posted shortly.
