G-Rated ?


 I am still very new to this blogging thing (hey, cut me some slack-I’m over 19!) so I recently discovered that my blog can be rated just like a tv program.  Ratings range the same way G , PG, Mature and so on.  I never thought much about it before until I started reading some of the other great blogs out there.  One in particular stands out but I won’t name her blog for now.  She is funny, irreverent, a bit of a smart-alec and she uses the F word a lot. Of course, it follows that I love her stuff.  Frequently my thoughts echo hers, and I would love to expound on it in my blog. But her subject matter and manner of delivery is definitely not G-Rated.

When I first started this venture it was with the intent of organizing my thoughts and feelings after a tremendous emotional upheaval that had taken place in my life.  At the time I knew that most of my painful thoughts should be kept in a paper journal that could be easily thrown in the fireplace should the need arise (which did eventually).  And that this on-line process would be more of a way to occupy lonely nights.  One of the things I was “told about” frequently was my penchant to be a “smart-alec” , so that censuring voice was still at work in my head shaping the tone of my posts.  Often I would have a thought that I would like to expand but rejected it not understanding why.  I am finding it harder to suppress that voice, lately.

So now I have a decision to make…stay G rated and have a wider scope or narrow my focus and speak (more of) my mind.  One thing I have learned is to not be in a hurry to implement something new, so for now it is status quo.  Perhaps as I learned to do in the real world I will simply learn to pick my battles, and when the right one comes along I will know what to do.

As a child I loved fantasy play, reading about and creating a world that was eons away from the present. for a brief time as an adult I had to "grow up" and attend to duties as a wife and mother. Now the children are grown, the husband gone and it is time for me. I have once again entered that fantasy world to write and create for myself and others if they choose to partake of the fantasy.

  1. Maybe the solution is another blog….

  2. “To thine own self be true”. If you’re more yourself at PG or PG-13, etc., go there.
