a couple of weeks ago, Shauna from Pass the Chocolate asked me something in an email…something that made a light bulb go on in my head (i know…who knew it could happen?). she asked me if i was going to keep my new blog more private than “A Beautiful Life“.
i have tossed this idea around before. there have been many times where i have really needed to vent, but had to watch my words and my subject matter…never know who’s reading. and my mom…i love her…but she has expressed her displeasure at my use of profanity…which is knee-slapping hilarious. my IRL friends can attest to the fact that my mother has a dirty potty mouth of her own…where exactly does she think i get it from??? i think she was worried about what other family members of friends might think…which has made it difficult for me to write everything i need to write.
so, after much deliberation….i have decided that “monkeys and marbles” will not be a family show. none of my family members will have access to this blog. not a one.
as far as IRL friends go, i have given my new address to two of my oldest friends from high school…that’s it.
i’m keeping “A Beautiful Life” going for the sake of family. the only thing i’ve done is move it over to WordPress.
i don’t have time to write two different blogs. so, when i write a post that is family friendly for “m&m“, i will copy and paste it over at “ABL“. but the non-family friendly posts will stay here…
i’m excited to have a chance to be more candid, more honest, and less censored…should make for some interesting reading!
