Indesicion in Blogging

I was gonna blog about body-image and identity stuff and, once again, failed to articulate what it is that makes me turn to this topic time and time again. I’ve got several drafted posts that will probably never see your screen. I think I’m just afraid of ruffling feathers. I ruffled a lot of feathers on my old blog (started in ’07 that I don’t update anymore) and in starting this blog I just wanted peace. Just a little peace and sewing.

But I’m thinking about it.

Ah, never you mind. If it gets blogged, it gets blogged. Not writing a dissertation on it. I can just haz the thoughts.

Until then, I’m gonna go make something.

    Yeah, I think I have some of those questionable drafts myself! Not sure if it’s really worth going down certain roads. (Good thing my husband is a good editor or I’d have probably already unintentionally “stirred the pot”!)

    I always enjoy what you DO post though! =)

    I think those things are definitely worth talking about, but it can be scary putting yourself out there- although I’ve talked about everythign I’ve wanted to on my blog, I have toned down some of the language so as not to ruffle feathers. Overall I’ve found there to be less nasty comments in the sewing blogosphere, although I know that’s not always the case. I would say write what you feel like writing & I’ll bet many of us respond well to it. ::hugs!::

      Yeah, scary, for sure. As I’m writing I imagine all the things people might write in response and I write in defenses for them in the draft post. ha! Then I get my brain saying some mean things to me and I stop writing. So, maybe I just don’t go there until I can do it like a well adjusted grown-up. 🙂 thanks for the digi-hugs

    I’d love to hear your thoughts on body-image! If you are worried about backlash, maybe it would help if you asked for a really specific kind of comment/reply: answering a question, say, as opposed to trashtalking your own body, or wishing for someone else’s? Now I’m really curious about what you were going to post!

    • Leila says:

      Those are good ideas. Asking specific questions. I think I need to work through my thoughts in a more methodical way, more like putting together one of my sewing posts. The body-image one has the tendency to go emo really fast.
