It strikes me that we are adept at managing identity. This week I am predominantly defined as aunty, next week I will be back to employee and ou student.
A blog like this presents very little of the rounded me. “Would you read your best mates blog?” I asked sisinlaw “no, I know her much better than that”. That about sums it up, my editorship on the random and disarrayed thought processes going on in my head will create a sanitised collection of ideas. So bloggingnuala is predisposed to appear dull and introspective.
Blogging struggles appear to be around having a voice, and having a reader. Do I use an existing “voice” or create another one?
As for the reader? Well I’m still fairly convinced this is mygoodself 3-5 years on who will read this, apply a twaddleometer, have a good laugh, then swiftly find something interesting to do.
