I started this blog to talk about running. Not just my running, but running in general. Other than complaining about the weather and talking about the surprise birthday party my husband threw me, I pretty much try to stick to running.
There's obviously more to my life, and in the past few days, I've been thinking a lot about something that happened on Saturday - something that I won't share on this blog, but that was kind of "big." So instead of writing about the run I had on Saturday (really, really good run!), or the run I had yesterday (fairly crappy, but at least I finished and didn't punk out), I've been avoiding my blog because what I've been feeling/wanting to talk about is not something that I'm willing to share with the internet.
There are certain parts of my life I'll never talk about online, as I'm sure there are millions of things that millions of bloggers won't touch, either. Of course, some people will talk about anything, even admitting publicly to stealing (Georgia HM Bandit, I'm looking at you!), but I guess I'm just not the type who is willing to bear all.
It does make me think, though, about blogging in general, and the permanency of the internet, and what people post without thinking (or maybe they are thinking, but just aren't that smart - again, see link above!). Maybe one day I'll want to tell the "whole story," but I don't know when that one day might come.
When you blog, do you edit yourself, or do you bear all?
