Half full...not empty

A good friend of mine mentioned to me the other day, that although she loves my blog, I need to try balance the positive with the negative. That really got me thinking…

By nature I am a positive person (glass being half full rather than empty), BUT her comment made me realize that I am using this blog to do 2 things: vent and share. I have mentioned it’s therapeutic to ‘put it all out there’ AND it is really cool to hear from you on the what I write especially when it comes to what we face as humans, families, communities and businesses. For me open dialogue is what has so often saved the world from the scourges of war and many other negative confrontations. I know that my parents may not see a blog as a dialogue [face to face is how you conduct dialogue] BUT this is really a platform for a new type of open, dual communication that is different..... and very much the future.

I would love to know your thoughts on this, but the reality is I write [as selfish as it sounds] more for me than for you.

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.

Is that not what the blogging thing is for? To blog for yourself? Besides, it is not like you are forcing anyone to read it... I do it because I want to. You should not really care what people think of your blog, because it is YOUR space.

Thanks anonymous for the tip!
Blogging is a contentious way to voice your headspace that is for sure!
