Yes, that is right. Because it is "just that easy" (to be said while snapping), to create a new blog, we did just that.
Back in college, I had the idea to do a piece of artwork every day for three months. It would be a journal for me, of sorts. I would draw and paint pictures and then write things that I was feeling---I was thrilled about the idea and started right away. I did great for the first two weeks, and then I had a review with my class.
I was so excited about this idea. I thought it would be a wonderful "final show" idea. I could frame all the images and display them in a "Barry McGee" crazy style. I was confident my professor and my class would love the idea. Well, the students did, but my professor did not. I was shocked.
His reasoning was that it wouldn't be REAL. He asked me what the purpose of my "so called journal" would be---and I said to express what I was feeling day to day and to record it (or something along those lines). He said, "Yes, exactly. But that's not what you'd be doing. If you know you are going to be displaying it at the end of three months, you will do it differently. If you are writing for an audience, then you won't be entirely honest. You will hold back, and it won't be REAL or TRUE." ---of course, I wasn't recording his words verbatim, but that was his drift.
So, don't get me wrong. I am a HUGE fan of the public blog world. Perhaps one of the biggest fans out there. But, because there is "an audience" of sorts out there, Aaron and I decided to start a new blog where we can write WHATEVER and WHENEVER we want.
With this, I'm not saying that I haven't been "REAL" on this blog. I feel as if I have. But, lots of times I want to "RECORD" things that may be a little personal for public cyberspace--as in emotions, frustrations, elations, sweet notes to Matilda, mushy love notes to Aaron, and the like. Let's be honest, sometimes you feel a little invasive reading that on other people's blogs. Am I right, or am I right? Thank you. Yes, I am right.
With that said, I am still going to post on here and I will be as "REAL" (notice a theme here?) as I can and have been.
But, I think you should do it too. But, make sure you still do the stuff we can see too. We all like a little entertainment and escape once in a while. Am I right, or am I right?
(p.s. it's not like I am coming up with this idea. Aren't we supposed to be keeping a journal? Yeah, I think I heard that somewhere... hA!).
