- New city.
- New neighborhood.
- New school.
A few reasons
including the fact the first thing they need to “see” about me is NOT a video of my yammers whilst wearing a sports bra.
I never thought to do this when she started kindergarten.
It wasnt a big deal—Id only be reminded moms in her class read MizFit when they’d ask me a fitness question—yet sometimes it felt…wonky.
They knew my innermost frazzlings—-and I barely knew them at all.
It’s NOT that I long to hide anything.
The pseudonyms I use (Tornado for my daughter and Ren(aissance) man for my husband) were born more out of silliness than being secretive & mainly originated from my old, mama-blog.
Because, unfortunately, so much of our lives— blogger or not—-is out there if people really want to DIG.
As a result, I approach blogging the way I write fiction:
The more perfectly you capture someone with your words the less likely they are to see themselves in your work.
Yet all *that* said: I entertained the notion of reigning it in a tad until we were perfectly & completely settled.
A CLEANSE of sorts—but of the words variety.
Then I reminded myself of the premise of this blog: a play on the word MISFIT (and not Miss. Fit).
I have no filter.
This is my place to get healthy & stay healthy. MIND & BODY.
I let it all.hang.out.
The OAKLANDgood & the OAKLANDbad and *all* my failings as a person who’s just trying to live the best life she can.
Which brings me in my wandering, circuitous way back to you.
- Is your blog hidden from family/offline-friends?
- What subject (broad or specific) would you blog about if you possessed complete anonymity?
- What are the titles of YOUR blog posts we will never read?
please to consider this your ‘heads up warning’ there will, indeed, be a post coming titled: I SHED A TEAR WHEN I RECEIVED THE HEAD LICE LETTER once I tease-out the fitness/healthy living tie-in. thank you.
