Okay, well, some of you probably have. At least you’ve seen some of the others. But not all. Well, except for a few of you.
So here are all my web pieces:
el tercer ojo (okay, you’re here, you know about this one)
The Punishment Book (a group blog about discipline and punishment. I’m Mija.)
A Smaller Target (my blog about my duodenal switch surgery and its after effects.)
The thing is, I was realizing this past weekend, I’ve got a lot of blogs. This realization came about this weekend as I considered starting a blog for scene /spanking stuff that doesn’t fit on The Punishment Book. I’ve been sort of inspired by Haron and Abel’s blog and thought it would be interesting to have a blog shared with Paul as I’ve discovered via the PB how much fun it can be to blog with other people. But when I broached the topic, Paul was less excited.
Paul has his own blog already. Sometimes he writes about scene stuff there, generally not — his blog style tends toward essays of his thoughts on a given subject at a given moment. He likes having all his pieces together, as it were. I can’t fault him for that. He has a place where everything he wants to write always fits. I keep trying to give myself that — a place where all my writing can fit (it was part of my intention with A Smaller Target (hence the name)) but I worry a bit too much about giving too much information to readers who aren’t interested in X or Y but come to read about Z. Especially since A Smaller Target is read by a lot of my family (I think my parents have given the blog address to everyone they know) and my vanilla friends. There’s stuff I can’t write when I think of them reading it.
And that is the difference between the two of us. Paul isn’t writing for other people. For me, the audience / community created by writing is much more the thing (of course that means I tend not to write when I’m feeling a bit down, but we all know that).
But is the solution really to divide my life up into different blogs, each piece with its own site? I’m not sure. I think this blog, for a while anyway, will be my experiment in blogging about just anything.
At least for a little while…
