A few months ago I moved my blog from Tumblr to Blogger. I've noticed since the move that I am playing it safer over here than I was over there, as if my readership has changed dramatically. I don't swear as often. I'm not as snarky. Part of that is I don't want to fall back on swear words to convey my emotions all the time. Also, I'm trying to be more positive about life in general and constant sarcasm defeats that purpose.
So I'm stuck in this limbo of how do I sound? What is right for me? If I get so watered down I don't feel like what I'm writing is me, then to hell with it, why bother? But I also want to have readers who are different from me so they can lend their perspectives on life too. Basically, I don't want to scare the nice people away.
So here's the deal: I'm going to be writing more as me and less as the PC "mom" version of me (I try not to swear in front of my kids and I go light on the sarcasm because my six year old is picking it up and it is quite annoying). And honestly, swear words are some of my favorite words. They can be so cathartic. But I'll try to be more creative for the most part.
So sorry for the past few watered down posts. Mama's got her groove back and I'll be damned if I let the internet take that away.
