And the crowd goes wild. The blogger gets it off her chest, readers feel less alone, and ad money comes pouring in.
I'm not one of those bloggers.
Sharing the struggles (and there have been a lot this month, haven't there?) invites negativity to stay. That's not the kind of hospitality I try to practice.
I appreciate everyday creativity, from a colorful salad or the delicate smocking on a thrift store dress.I celebrate the fact that it doesn't cost much to have beauty in your life.
In many ways this blog is like my home. I grow more and more reluctant to open the door each morning. Other opinions are welcome, but not in mean spirit and not from anonymous commenters.
Why don't we raise the sash for some fresh air and let the sun shine in on a freshly wiped counter?
If you ignore the cereal crunched on the floor, I will, too. At least for a moment, while we cheer each other on.
