    I don’t know if you do have to do anything different, Shelly. That being said, writing a book is a good idea – you could even serialise it through your blog or another blog. I enjoy what you write and the three pillars you have is a great structure 😊

    Blogging should be exactly what you said, just writing whatever it is that you want. And even possibly doing it anonymously. You could even do that here without starting a new blog!

    I hope that you find whatever it is you’re searching for. And I hope that we can help on this journey with you 🤍

    Hey Shelly, I wish you strength and goodness as you overcome these perilous times. You will overcome that’s for sure and regardless of the kind of content you write. I’m here for it!

    P.s. please send a private link to my email if you eventually start an anonymous blog.

    Have a great day ahead!!!

    Shelly I love following you! You are always real and honest and speak from the heart. Those are beautiful qualities 💕 I support you in whatever writing outlet helps you-whether this blog, a separate blog, or a book. 😊

    I love your blog and look forward to reading your posts. It’s great that you have the self-awarness to know your three pillars and that you don’t let anything distract from them.

    Keep doing what you’re doing. And, if you do write a book, sign me up because I’d love to read it.

    in whatever form it takes, i think it’s important to write from your heart, and with what pleases you – your readers will stay with you

    Finding that balance between authenticity and… discretion isn’t the right word, but it’s all I’m coming up with right now, is so hard. I agree 100% that the blogs I most enjoy are more personal and reflective of the blogger’s voice and personal experiences. But there are disadvantages to putting yourself out there in the world. The vulnerability can be scary. I don’t know. After more than a decade of blogging, I still find it sometimes hard to achieve that balance, so I can empathize with what you’re feeling.

    Also, I’m so sorry you’re struggling with increased anxiety and irritability. I KNOW you aren’t alone, but that doesn’t make those feelings less uncomfortable! Hopefully they will ease off on you soon.

    Blogging should be something you do first and foremost for yourself, rather than for others. I know that this blog has been a place for you to express your feelings, and if that is what helps you, then you should carry on doing it for that reason! Whatever you decide to do, you have my support 🙂

    Love your musing on this because writing is so much bigger than any one thing — just as we are. It is the most human, most Divine and Godlike thing — The Word — and it should not be a straight line. Squiggly lives are messy but oh so much more interesting and fulfilling than a perfect but shallow line. Keep on doing and more importantly, BEING what and who you are. Shalom — Jane

I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
