The Genuine Me

So I wrote a post a few days ago that I wasn't sure I wanted to write. Putting yourself out there is a tough thing to do. But I recalled that one of the things that I wanted to do with my blog was to be authentic, and I had realized that I was hiding significant moments in my life behind glossy, superficial posts.

Maybe you wont notice much of a change, cuz I don't really want to change the focus of the blog, I just want to get brave and start sharing those moments that might help someone else, or give them hope, or whatever.

But tomorrow, I'm sharing a recipe and a kitchen utensil. So don't run away, please!

Oh, and I'm planning another give away, so be prepared! I think this one is really good!

So that's all I have to say. Night!

I read your post and thought it was beautiful. Sometimes when people write deep, meaningful posts it's hard to leave a comment because I can't really sum up what I'm thinking or feeling in a few sentences, and also need time to process it. I admire you and anyone else who puts themself out there because it's so much easier not to.

I am trying to be more open in my blog posts too, but also maintain a balance of comfort and privacy.
I read an interview with a blogger who said she always tries to come to her blog with an open heart. I like that so much I adopted it for myself.

Looking forward to your recipes and that giveaway :)

Erin, I can hardly wait for your post.

It's really good to read authentic blogs, I realized that we often write only the good or supperficial things about our lives, but I feel really good when I read real post , about real people , that have real lifes.

And please share the recipe!
I am Wanting to change our food habits (eat simple, less meat), maybe you can help. In Portugal we have the terrible habit of eating a lot and a lot of meat.

Just write what you feel comfortable with, dear Erin. No pressure.

Putting yourself out there makes your blog amazing; if I didn't feel like I knew the "genuine" you, I wouldn't read :) Keep on, keepin' on!
