A Brat goes silent

I've removed a blog from my Blogroll that was the first one I put on there. The site formerly know as Diary of a Brat has gone silent.

My friend Brat has decided to remove herself from the Blogosphere. I won't pretend to speak for her. Her reasons are her own. Lord knows I've been contemplating whether to do the same thing, so I certainly understand.

I'll miss her blog, but fortunately I have another way of maintaining contact with her. Not all of her former readers will be so lucky. But I knew she stops by here regularly, so if anyone wants to leave a comment for her, she is likely to find it here.

Farewell Brat.

Thanks for the post and warm thoughts G. I don't think I ever did my blog service. Sure, from time to time I was consistent and even had some thought provoking posts, but I just couldn't seem to carry it like you and so many other bloggers do.

I have kept a journal for a good part of my life and I like and need the outlet, so I will miss my blog, but because of the nature of blogs, being public, I was hampered. I was trying to remain anonymous (due to my job) and found it very difficult to do so. I wanted to come home from work and post about what I observed throughout my day (I had the perfect blogging laboratory), but every time I posted I felt like I was revealing more of myself. Which I think can be a good thing, but in my case, I often felt exposed.

It’s funny, just before I logged on to your blog, I thought, I miss my blog, I miss the connections I have made and I miss sharing my thoughts. I may down the road start a new chapter in my blogging history, so don’t count me out just yet. I am thinking that I may have a lot to write about come April 2006.

If I can say anything about blogging it is this, blogging opens the door to one’s soul, if you let it. I have learned so much about you, and other bloggers, but most of all, myself.

Beautifully stated Brat! When you come back to blogging be sure to let me know. (I do have your email address, so I assume you have mine)

You'll be missed.

Thanks 3T! Yes, you are in my address book. I think we may have something to celebrate in a few months, you up for a drink?
