A lot of people I know, not in person, but from social media such as on Twitter have blogs and are pretty famous from them. I don’t want to be that type of blogger. There’s nothing wrong with it of course, but I like my privacy and I think privacy is a really important factor in my life. I try to keep my life as private as it can be.
Usually, if I’m having problems or something great is happening in my life, I’d only tell my husband and my best friend. I also tell my mom, dad and siblings, then keep it all hush-hush until the time is right to share it with others.
And yes, I may be 28 years old but I still tell my mom everything.
When I thought about making this blog it was in January, and I put off the idea because of this, but it’s been on my mind a lot lately and I’ve finally decided to write it. So, as this is important I’m making this my first post and one of the few public posts.
I don’t want recognition for just documenting my life and paying attention to the little things. I don’t want to become a public figure. I don’t want my business being known by strangers. I don’t want people criticizing me when they don’t know me personally.
I live in a small, quiet town in New York. New York. The city that never sleeps. I live in New York where many people dream of living, or just visiting, and I live in the rural part of that state. If that doesn’t say much about privacy, then not much else will. Our house is located maybe twenty minutes from town and we’re surrounded by a beautiful view of trees, grass and hills and we can breathe fresh, clean air. It’s magical. It’s like a mini-paradise. Not only for me, but for our pets as well. There’s so much room we could rear about fifty dogs and about twenty horses.
We live in a wonderful neighborhood where everyone is kind to one another and we all work to keep our community strong. It’s something you wouldn’t imagine being in New York, but it’s there. And I love it too!
So, back to the main topic; I just want to share some stories that have made me who I am today and read those of others who have made them who they are. I don’t want to bring my husband or family and friends into public eye when they have no necessity to be in it. If they want to be in it, then I guess they can find a way themselves.
I want to know that the stories and pictures I’ll be sharing won’t end up half way across the internet, that maybe someday I’ll be scrolling through my Instagram feed and stumble across a picture of myself that’s open to thousands or millions of followers. I know I’m being dramatic but we can all agree that it’s a possibility, right? So I’m doing what I can to reduce the chances of the possibility from occurring.
So, if anyone wants to read my blog then email me, we’ll work it out.
Which much love and thanks,
