Let's Be Honest.

Just for a minute. You see, the way socitety is structured there are some things you just can't say. It's not polite or it's offensive to someone or it's unethical. There are also some things you won't ever say because of the emotional ramifications. So what to do? Sometimes you keep your mouth shut in an attempt to keep the status quo. Sometimes you write one of those angry (or sappy) letters that you never send, just to get it off your chest. Maybe you're keeping a secret that would be really harmful if it got out, but you don't feel like carrying it around alone.

Here on the internet there shines a glimmer of hope. That vast despository of useless information that is both broadcast around the world, and also lost in a digital forest. Some people mail their postcards to a publisher. Some people paint their identities with spray paint on the side of empty boxcars. Some people confess. I will blog.

These are my love letters. My quiet thoughts. My secrets.

I really like this description of a reason to blog... it's definitely part of the reason I started, too (but I'm still having alot of trouble getting over the worry of being found-out, and trouble starting writing about "REAL" things!)
You're on my reader, look forward to reading your posts :)
