Let's Keep This Between Us

I think I'm having issues with writer's block. I haven't really been blogging lately and it's lack of ideas. Sure, there's plenty I could write about but I actively choose not to. There are just certain things that should be kept private.

Some things I will never put on the blog:
1. My job. Other than the passing comment or remark, I will not be pulling a Dooce and getting fired for what I write. I won't be talking about my boss (unless it's something funny), her boss or her boss' boss. There will always be times that I'm frustrated but like many other people, I need a job and this blog isn't worth getting fired over.

2. The maritals. You know what I'm talkin' about. Business time.

No one wants to know about it. I don't want to share it. My mother in law sometimes reads this blog. And so do other in-laws. Hey guys!

So. NO.

3. Specific kids we work with in choir. I may relay funny stories or quotes from them, but I'll never identify them or put their pictures up without permission. The internet is a cuh-razy place and they don't need to be out there.

4. Any major family drama. Because MY side of the family sometimes reads this blog. Hey guys!

Just to show you how little topics I have... I shall list them here:
1. Exercise. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Mostly because I'm a giant slacker and only did p90x twice last week. What a bum.

2. Learning how to use my camera better.

3. The steps I'm taking to become a legit photographer (starting my own business...omgi'mtotallyfreakingoutaboutit)

4. The photography specials I will be running in the spring. I gotzta bulk up my portfolio!

5. The spring pageant we picked. The title alone is hilarious.

Speaking of which, since I don't like blog posts without pictures, here's Peter's latest headshots:


So help me guys, what do ya wanna know?


  1. I totally understand all your reasons to not blog about those subjects. I've found it hard that I'm in a funky mood and blogging without letting everyone know what my funk is. Plus who wants to read that? In any case, I like reading your blog. It's nice to hear about your workouts and photography and happiness. E and I will start experimenting with photographers soon for engagements. Don't be surprised if you're on the list. Who better to photograph you than a friend?

  2. Pete! those turned out lovely.

    you should tell some old stories. I know you have a ton of crazy stories from you and your besties.

  3. Totally agree - it's a reason why my blog has a food focus. ;) Now that the holidays are over, I don't have any projects to blog about or any family get-together's to share. You just have to get creative and three cheers for not sharing every little gory detail to the internet world. :)

    You could always do a movie/book review - and whatever happened to your dance classes? I have confidence that the "write" things to talk about will come along! And you don't have to blog every day - maybe set a new goal to write every week!

  4. whatever you write - i always enjoy reading it! :D
