Does This Thing Still Work??

So, I tried out having my blog on another host site.  It was okay...not really any different then here.  I liked some things about Wordpress, as opposed to the Blogger format and there were some things that I really missed about complete ownership.  I did not own the domain and there ended being issues with the person that did have control.

No one owns me.  Ever.

So, I am playing around with the decision to come back here.

I am just so unsure right now.  I am not completely convinced that I even want to keep on blogging at this point.

I am really busy with life and I get caught up in it and then I don't get to post as much as I feel I should...then it makes me mad and I end up not posting at all...

that makes me frustrated because I then think about all the wonderful people I have in my life that I have met through blogging and how much I have learned from them.

I also think about starting a completely new blog where no one knows me because at the Word Press home it had been compromised by knowing that former family members were reading it like a crack addict....and that bothered me.

I don't feel that anyone has the right to be an active reader of my blog if they are connected to me biologically, but not a part of my personal life.  It's kinda creepy if you ask me....and it seriously weirds me out.  If you are seriously THAT interested in me or my life, then take the time to get to know me....not hide behind your veil of secrecy and pretend that you know ANYTHING about me.

Trust and believe I keep certain people at arm's length for a reason.  I am happy with the people in my daily life and there are no plans on ever changing that premise.

I know I am not really writing with a clear cut point or objective....I just really wanted to see if this blog would even accept any more posts before I decide to go through all the trouble of starting a new one.

This is Home Girl...and I might just move back to my old house.

You bring up lots of good points. I do hope you keep blogging.
I dont say a lot of what i really want because i know who is reading my blog. I censor myself and i dont like that.

That cake looks INCREDIBLE! I don't know if I even knew you had a new blog. I am sorry : (

Hmmm, decisions decisions. That sounds like haterism. You know, like when someone cuts out of their life and it irks you that they do well and your life is so pathetic you have to stalk their blog just to get your fix. Ridiculous, do what you must ma'am.

I have to admit I was thinking of moving from blogger. There are so many technical things that go wrong all the time and still are that it drives me insane. I'm not totally convinced by Wordpress either.

I'll read your blog where ever it is! Well as long as you want me to of course.

Still works ....... Searching for perfection rarely lends results. I just ignore the stalkers.

Your post is exactly what I have been feeling for months! I haven't posted since early January due to changes in my life and "family blog stalkers" that I do not want to see my posts regarding my life if they choose not to be active in it. Your blog is for you to correspond YOUR thoughts, vent, share, whatever YOU need. Your post just made me realize I need to start a new blog because I miss that. Do what's best for you! And btw I missed the pictures of your food, can't wait to see what you whip up for Easter. :) Good Luck!
