Daily Prompt: Mirror Mirror on the wall, does my blog tell it all?

What does my blog say about me? That’s not difficult because the topic I usually write about is my life. So, really it is saying quite a bit about me. Not everything though, I chose to keep things light in my words and in my pictures. The picture of the sun shining over clouds is one I took in my back yard. I would like to think the symbolism is appropriate because I always try to find a silver lining to things. The sun peeking behind clouds is a good representation of my life and my beliefs. I like to find humor in the humdrum of my life, so I always search for cartoons to add to my topic, as well.
With my optimism in mind, I am curious as to why I chose the skeptical theme. Am I skeptical? Yes, especially about blogging. I was (and somewhat still) skeptical about blogging. I wasn’t sure if I would get gratification from posting my writings. I did have nightmares of hatful commenters and overly judgmental peers. I am grateful that my nightmares have not come true.
I always write, journal or whatever and it never dawned on me to share these thoughts on the web until my dear friend Nicole, did it and suggested it. I am so glad she did. I now find myself drawn to post daily and I love to look at the stats page. I also find my self losing sleep as a pour through thousands of awesome blogs of people who are very similar to me. The deep vat of knowledge here entrances me, I like to read it and get lost sometimes.

Blogging helps the loneliness I have been coping with since we moved, as well as boosting my self-esteem when I receive likes or have a lot of views on a topic. I find myself making my blog more and more personal with pictures and colors I like. I think this is because I am becoming less skeptical. I even found my self searching new themes the other day, ironic.

What does my blog say about me? I really think it sums me up nicely but I wonder if I will ever allow the serious side of myself to emerge on this platform. Hopefully one day. ☺

This blog is in response to today’s daily prompt:

Think of your blog as a mirror: what does it reveal? Consider your blog name, theme choice, design, bio, posts… what does every element tell you about yourself?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us REFLECTIONS.

Thanks for the great idea, anupturnedsoul!
