The Next Big Thing

I mentioned in my Life Lately #8 post that I have been feeling like I can’t express my real opinions or feelings lately. This isn’t just related to my blog, but to non-blog life as well. I started this blog as a journal of sorts. I’m not one to keep a written log of my ideas and things. When I write it all out I tend to get frustrated and want to change how I phrase things and ideas, so typing is just much easier for me. Plus, I type much faster than I write and can express my ideas easier when I type.

But I have also been feeling a little bit censored in a way – again on and off my blog. But I think I have come up with a solution. Starting from today, there will be a new category on No Love For Fatties. It’s called “Giggling Followers”

Giggling Followers is what I have named all you lovely people who read and/or subscribe to my blog. Some of you have become really invested in my life, and I very much appreciate that. It is always a comfort to know that when I have a problem, you will be there for me. And I, in turn, have become invested in your lives. Naturally, there are things that I want to be able to share with you without having to share with the rest of the world, maybe for personal or private reasons, or sometimes just to get some advice on things or to vent.

Under the new category Giggling Followers, there will be some exclusive content. All the posts, aside from this one, will be password protected. The same password will be used for all the posts. I’m not going to provide this password to just anyone. Those who have followed this blog and who are active on it (liking posts, commenting, sharing their own opinions and/or stories, connecting with me and with fellow bloggers) will have access to the password. Head over to my Contact Me page and send me a little note asking for it and I will be more than happy to send you the password.

There are already a few “private” posts that I have switched over to “password protected” so the category has some posts in it already. I’m not sure how often I will be using the category, but at least I know that it is there just in case I need a safe place to write.

  1. I can totally understand this. I’ve struggled with similar feelings. I started blogging to say whatever I want… and then I started holding back. But you probably know this from the post I made about it. I try now not to censor myself… but there are still some things I don’t post. If I’m having a terrible day… followed by another and another… I can’t write about all of it even if I want to. People will think I’m even more crazy than they already think. 😀
