Every time I watch my favorite sports team play, I have a tendency to get overzealous and my voice go hoarse. It hit me that my husky, raucous, and guttural voice that takes place of my normal one is not strong any longer, but a weak form of what was once there.
Is this what we do in our blogging at times? Is it that my voice may come across too strong or too opinionated? At other times, my blog may become weak because I do not tackle the blogging topic with full veracity. Truth for me though may not be the same truth for another. Yet we all know that there are universal truths in our world.
After taking a break from the daily blogging world the last 2 months , I have come to realize I prefer to allow myself freedom to write as I choose. As an individual I am as complex as they come. This brings for interesting thoughts that flow in my head and scream to come out. It is in my blogging I can find voice, yet learn to tame it so I do not go hoarse. You would think going gusto for the team and screaming with all your might for them to win is an awesome thing. I suppose it is, but at the end of the game and may I add at the end of this game we call life, does that hoarse voice show strength or weakness? All I know is that my throat could do well to have a throat lozenge just about now.
Happy Blogging Friends.
I love this analogy. Very thought-provoking.
Thank you. I had recently had a conversation with another blogger about how open we should be when we are writing on wordpress. It was the inspiration for my writing this short post. Hope you are doing great!
Writing as you choose should always be the goal. Mission accomplished!
that is so right!
I think there is a time for both voices. Sometimes getting hoarse for a cause is a good thing.
Yes. I get exactly what you are saying. It seems to me I had found myself discussing some issue and it just was falling on deaf ears. Sometimes you have to just let it go.
