Sharing...Enough, Too Much


Ok, so I decided to blog about this issue that has been a constant battle for me. When I started this blog and I know I've probably mentioned this before and you’re probably tired of reading about it but, it was meant to be a lifestyle blog. A place where I can share my experiences and life as it happens. It did start out that way but somewhere along the way, it morphed into more of a fashion blog than anything else; which Is not necessarily a bad thing. 
I love sharing and I love listening to people that are willing to share their experiences. I know sharing in this form has the tendency to leave you a little vulnerable in some areas because you're leaving a bit of yourself out there but the reward that comes from it is satisfactory. Over-sharing became a concern early on so I went to the other extreme where I completely stopped sharing. It's always a constant battle in my head; I have so many posts in draft that I ended up not posting because I felt It might be over-sharing. But at the end of the day, I wish I had published those posts for one reason or the other.

So, what I'm trying to say is I’m currently in a state where I’m trying to find the balance between over-sharing and not holding myself back on posting my experiences and information that someone else might find useful. Reason I know this is because I go looking for this exact  information and personal experiences online to relate to while going through it. So, If one person finds and reads about my experience or what I have to say and it resonates with them, then that's all that matters.

I love writing and I love to document everything in one form or the other; and this blog allows me to do just that, which is one of the reasons I started blogging all together. In a way, I think it holds me accountable to document life's moments. Perfect example is my pregnancy with Eliana and being a mom. I'm glad I have all those "Pregnancy Journals" and "Letters to Eliana" series. Even though it may not contain all the information I wanted to remember (again, didn't want to over-share), I cherish what I have documented. Otherwise, I wouldn't have any of it. I would have had the intention to but it would have never been done. That's where the blog comes in and that's one of the reasons I keep blogging. I suppose you can see this blog both ways, first as a way to document memorable life's  moments, events, and experiences and at the same time, share with others who can relate or find useful information in it.

So here we go!

  1. I know what you mean. However, I enjoy reading lifestyle posts the most. I miss bloggers like From Marriage to Motherhood for that same reason. I went through reader withdrawals when she stopped blogging.

    1. Hey girl! I enjoy reading lifestyle posts the most as well, that's one of the reasons I'm trying to stay true to my intent. Omg! I feel the same way about her From Marriage to Motherhood. I pulled a couple of all nighters to catch up on her blog when I first found her. Definitely miss her blog.
      Let's hope I can stay out of my own head long enough to make this happend ;)
