I started blogging on a private site back in 2007 or so. It was a safe place to pour out my thoughts and heart. I was secure in the knowledge that I could say whatever I wanted and not have to apologize or defend what I had written. I no longer belong to that site because I found blogger.com which is free. Other people have told me that Wordpress.com is better. I don't know.
Blogging helped me vent and deal with aged parents who refused to die on my timeline (oh about 1968) and the feedback and support helped me stay who I wanted to be, someone giving her parents the best end of life she could. But after they died, I didn't write very much. I found a Saturday morning writing group that I loved and seemed to take care of my writing needs.
I've written a few longer pieces on Facebook and have gotten a lot of love and support. But now I think it is time to start blogging again. I think my next piece will be about text message misunderstandings and how much I miss writing and getting real letters. Or maybe it will be about something else. Whatever, talk to you soon.
