On Writing

Writing is often really cathartic for people, especially writing and getting feedback. I have these conversations with myself where I’m going back and forth all the time, wondering if I should try to be more open and personal.

I think there are a lot of people “out there” who would probably really relate to the things I’d like to write about. Size acceptance, weight loss (or not), body image, feminism, etc etc, but I think there are also a lot of people who would leave nasty comments and be really mean, or who want to argue just to argue.

I guess this is all a part of what blogs are, and what purpose they serve for their authors and their readers. I’m not a journalist, and I’m not trying to be one… but I do believe in at least trying to cite sources when I’m making a statement. Also, this *is* my little bit of bandwidth and I guess I could just delete comments with impunity, kind of like washing the graffiti off your back fence when it bugs you. But that veers into coming across as unwilling to hear other points of view, especially to the ones that want to argue, not just insult. I’m not particularly interested in arguing in *my* space, though. There are plenty of other group weblogs (or even personal blogs where arguments are encouraged) where I can do that.

But that brings me back to what I’m trying to accomplish. I want to write. I want to share. But do I want to open myself up to the critical masses? I’m not sure.
