Goodbye Sassy Sister, Hello Writer

Dear all, while I love and shall keep this lovely blog, I don't think I'll be posting on here any longer. It's practically a useless announcement anyway haha, since I never post...but I am reverting to my favorite little blog, A Writer's Ponderings. It's been a long time since I've had this, about five or six years I think? But I've outgrown being the Sassy Sister- I don't really think it suits me anymore. Instead, my writing blog shall feature, obviously, my writing, little tidbits, and my adventures! (also, I tend to post  more on there. So if you want to keep up I would definitely follow my other blog if I were you. :p)

catch y'all on the flipside!

Be Yourself

It's been a long time since I looked at this blog, and I doubt anyone's reading this but that's okay. I'm writing this for me.
     I've made a few decisions. Firstly, I'm not going to write for anyone. I will write for me and not an audience. I don't mean this in any particular way, I'm just saying what it is. I used to write for people, if that makes sense.
     "Here, I'll tell you about my life even though you're not interested because I need to keep my blog going even though nothing is interesting."
     Well, Sassy Sister, to be quite frank, no one is particularly interested in hearing that you went to Florida for the weekend. To be honest, I wouldn't be reading that if I were me. I would rather read about (for example, and this is completely made up and not true) an involvement in the rescuing of a drowning person rather than yup this is were I went this weekend and then I came home.

       Maybe I'm thinking: more details, more thoughts.
      More interest.

     Secondly, I lied about making a few decisions. If I made a few decisions, I only remember one.

     Maybe it's about me sending a message to myself. Write what you want. Write when you want. Be interesting but don't feel pressure to be so. Be interesting in your own way, and don't let other people change that. Don't write for others because they are reading it; if they are interested in reading, they are interested in reading what you have to say; they chose to read what you wrote, so don't change it for them.
     Don't be afraid to say or do what you really want to do just because you have a follower. If they don't really care for your opinion and unfollow you, that's fine- you weren't writing for them before they came along in the first place. Anyway, eventually you'll find someone who, even if sometimes they don't agree with you, still like what you write and continue to read.

    With all that said, perhaps I'll return. But it's up to me. (and I probably won't for a long time anyway because I'm lazy and forgetful like that but who cares because who is reading this?)
