  • Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the little voice inside you the yells, "can't!" But you don't listen; you just push harder and then you hear the voice whisper "can" and you realize the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

Hey girl. Feels weird to leave a comment since I just left you...

You know that I like both you and Kristen so I am not going to take sides here. I do think people have different blog personas, and different reasons for blogging and writing. I can't speak for Kristen, but I imagine some of the things she writes are "exaggerated for entertainment effect."

I do like to think that the "tell it like it is" posts are more of an opportunity to allow people who feel similarly to vent. As we talked about after the BlogHer identity session, I prefer to think I am only representing myself. I think probably a lot of bloggers feel this way, and maybe if they get agreement/recognition that's icing on the cake.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents. And you know, if you don't like, you don't have to read. That is still the beauty of blogging.

Point well taken. Or points, rather. There is no side to be taken. I don't know the girl, only some of what I read on her blog. The thing is, I consider myself a tell-it-like-it-is kinda girl, I just think I'm telling it like it is FOR ME- not that my view actually resembles reality in any way. My reality, yeah, anybody elses? Not so much. But if you're going to tell it like it is, then tell it like it is for everything. If you think you're hot shit, then say you think you're hot shit.

I don't know. I'm tired, it was a long weekend. I lost my center. As soon as we got home today I talked to Dean for a good long time and he kind of brought me back down to myself.

It was a good day today- Dean and the girls loved you Nancy... and me, too. :) In case I haven't said it enough...
