It's hard to be me

Yesterday, I wrote a post called 'The Waiting is the Hardest Part,' and it presents a fairly dreary look at Osan. I like it, though, and I was going to put it right up, but then I thought, 'What if someone gets up in a cheery mood here at Osan, gets her morning coffee and sits down to read Stories from Korea and is reminded how much it sucks here? It might ruin her whole day.' That's not something I want on my conscience! THEN I thought, 'But it's my blog, I can write what I want!' And then I thought I should make a secret blog and I can write whatever I want and no one will be the wiser. But it's no fun to write a blog if no one reads it. See how hard it is to be me?

Anyone else have a problem like this? I think I have a solution. This is not my original idea; I saw it somewhere and thought it was brilliant. If you have something you want to post but can't do it on your own blog, send it to me, anonymously if you want, and I'll post it for you! As long as it's not nasty; Stories from Korea does have some standards. It can be about anything: Mother-in-law driving you crazy? Hate the Air Force? Is your neighbor too noisy late at night? Share it here and get it off your chest!

I like that you are in such consternation about your true feelings regarding Osan, what you are writing and how people will take it, when I am still having flashbacks about your booger post! :)

I think about that stuff all the time. I feel like my audience if so scattered. My grandfather all the way to my friends here at Osan to people I went to high school with....what's appropriate and or who cares?

Same offer to you...need it posted somewhere, I would love to have a guest blogger. Might not be so anonymous now though!

I like the idea of anonmymous guest blogging. I have things like that all the time, but never end up doing anything with it because of some of my audience. (Don't I sound so popular) I'm all for it! I'm with Brooke too, if you need to do an anonymous one, I'm here for you. Same goes for anyone else reading this.

Great idea! I'll go first: Hey, my problem is that I've got this nutty daughter and she ... No, wait.

...she didn't teach me how to not post comments three times.
