My blog, My child

I have a friend who tells me my blog is like entering a relationship with a child. I have baggage [NOT that I am trying to say to any of you with children that they are baggage]. I am carrying something with me that some guy has to decide if he can handle, be committed to, not freak out about...


There have been many male figures interwoven throughout this blog, we don't know who the father is. It has become protective of me...sometimes it doesn't like all these new guys. Multiple men it has to yell “you’re not my father” to.


There are the guys that try to be the father figure - "I can handle the blog” he says. He wants to become a good model for the blog, find himself a regular figure in its life - the blog doesn't scare him away.

And then there are those who run and hide. They aren’t ready for that commitment. Aren’t ready to meet by blog or don’t feel like they have what it takes to date me after hearing about it…


I am really happy when my blog likes a guy...I know this could potentially really be something. I am not just thinking about me anymore...I am concerned about my blog. And frankly, all of you. If I get a boyfriend my blog will not be as good for all of you [not that I’m so good at keeping up at it right now!]. My identity as a writer will be different - I will not be the single girl in LA.


So when is the right time to let a guy know? Hi, I need to let you know I have a two year old...blog. And how will I know he’s the Yeti??

Wow. Everyone can find their inner Seinfeld. "She had man hands."

Some guys will run if they find out a woman has a two year old blog. I'm either brave or quite dull since I'm in a relationship with an aspiring fiction writer.

I think these kind of thoughts about a man's reaction to the vision I have for my life...I'm really not in any position to give up that vision and yet, I often wonder if any guy'll ever be man enough to embrace that too. Thanks, as always, for your thoughts and your diligence to share them out loud ;)

How do you find time to date with a demanding two year old blog? I mean, finding blogsitters has to get costly over there on the West coast!

I do think this is a most incredible website for proclaiming great wonders of Our God!
