Blogging publicly is getting harder I realise. It feels lumpy, the words are no longer flowing. It seems the more people that are involved in the day you’re going to blog about the lumpier and bumpier it gets. You might want to write about those you’ve spent the day with. Should you run your blog by them first, what is the etiquette about blogging stuff about others? When you’re only blogging about yourself it’s all a lot easier. In my humble opinion, but i’ve only been doing this about 30 days, and I’ve had far too much wine and gin to be in charge of a blog right now. But my general feeling is that a blog worth its salt needs to be genuine and transparent. When you start tempering and tampering the blog loses that vital spark that makes it worth reading. But maybe that’s just the gin talking.
When I started this blog, I was flying solo, soaring and looping the loop and sometimes crashing and burning. And now I’m coupled up and spending time with friends. Don’t get me wrong, it is wonderful to have people to share all of this with but it’s changing the way I blog. I have less time and definitely less insight. I meditate less and eat and drink too much for my brain to be as sharp and observant as I’d like. I gather too much stuff than is good for me, especially when I have to get on a flight to Vietnam tomorrow with only one piece of hand luggage.
But thankfully tonight all of this is forgotten when we head out for a last supper in Sai Kung. To a restaurant called Padstow. Padstow! ‘Blimey, she’s really lost it’ I can hear you say. But no, it’s true, and here’s a very blurry picture to prove it.
