Say what you mean, mean what you say

I jotted these words down on the notepad beside me. "Say what you mean, mean what you say."  I identify strongly with this statement. At least, I should say, I used to identify strongly with it.

I have no shortage of things to say, however, not much of it has meaning. Here are some of the thoughts I considered writing about this week:

- '100 days of working out? Nonsense!'
- 'I officially joined the I-hid-from-my-kids-in-the-bathroom-when-I-didn't-even-have-to-go club!
- 'Upping my Wrapping Game' , umm, I mean, 'Desperately Seeking Wrapping Skills!'
- 'Have you ever seen inside a Passion Fruit? Creepy!'
- 'Black-out Curtains in the Nursery: Too Long, Too Narrow'*

Not much substance in these topics. But how much substance are you really look for in a blog?  I guess it comes down to how much I am looking to share?

*I will fix the rod in 2013, promise!

ps.the passion fruit was delicious!! 


  1. I struggle with this! I want produce quality content on my blog, not blither and blather that's everywhere else. Occasionally I'll do an inspirational post filled with pictures, but that's really just to make sure that everyone knows I'm not dead.

  2. passion fruit - yummy. have you tried the dark purples ones? they are yummier.

  3. I don't always need deep thoughts on a blog...I come for the voice...thought provoking or not.... so please...all those ideas... write . I will read.

  4. I didn't know that's what a passion fruit looks like. I always imagine it with redish skin like dragon fruit. Not pretty. I like writing the blogs but sometimes I do feel I need to write some crowd-pleasers. You know what I mean.

  5. I personally love all the post ideas you mentioned. Nothing has to be a "crowd pleaser" as far as I'm concerned. I find you interesting just because I do, and I'd love to read your thoughts on everyday stuff.

  6. I try to write for me...and I hope you guys enjoy it!

    I am always a bit surprised when a subject seems to connect with people...ok, surprised isn't the right word...I write a blog FOR the connections...but sometimes the reactions are not what I expect!!!

  7. I've never tried a dark purple one!!! I will watch for them!

  8. I dunno what counts as silly can be great...and heavy can be great....and fashion can be great...and,'s what you make of it!!! If you figure out quality...please write a post about it and I will read it!!!
