30 days of truth

I know that coming up with things to blog about is difficult sometimes, especially when you're socially retarded like most bloggers (ie: why you blog in the first place) and your real, not-in-front-of-the-computer-because-no-matter-what-you-say-your-friends-don't-live-in-there

God, writing like that is difficult... I can't not push space, then I hit backspace, and space again! I'm one helluva programed freak.

life is less than interesting most of the time. Whew... umm, don't be offended by what I just said, you're reading this instead of being out drinking or other un-socially retarded acts...

So, in my normal morning routine of coming to work, reading my emails, and clicking on blogs that look interesting, I came across one from a gal I whose site I clicked on from a British Gent (lets be honest once again, since I've already moderately offended you; but how awesome is it when you read British blogs in a British accent!?!). So this Stephanie Ann isn't British, although that won't stop me from reading her blog like she is...

the beauty of blogging, you are what I want you to be, and if you're not there is this little X in the corner of the window that prevents you from shattering my dream...


She is doing one of those things people do when they either a) can't think of a steady stream of quality things to write about or b) are bored.

I am neither of those things, at least not today. However, I was intrigued by her idea. 30 truths about yourself, in 30 days... hmm... not that I have a lot to hide, but I do prefer to keep certain things somewhat private. I talk about my crazy in a humorous light, but ask anyone and they'll tell you that while I'm sitting on the couch crying for the 3rd hour straight talking about the exact same thing I have been talking about for the last 4 months that it's not humorous, not even slightly. If I did decided to do this 30 days of truths nonsense it might get real real, real fast... and I love my bloggy friends, and I love sharing about my emotions with you

last side note for a minute... how obnoxious is it that you can't text with italics? I would give someones left nut to change that. And don't tell me to e-mail people... I don't have an android phone and I break them so easily I'll probably never get one.

but I'm not sure if I ready to truthfully share about them, for 30 days, with no break...

I was thinking I'd maybe do them, once or twice a week, or at the bottom of a regular post. Or I could make a separate tab for them next to the about me. I have been looking for something solid to add a tab about, and I wasn't sure if you guys wanted to track my period too... I mean... umm... something unrelated to menstruating.

Also, I have found that when I ask questions at the bottom of my posts no one answers them, it's probably because people think that's annoying. Or they think its a rhetorical question and they feel awkward answering, again, socially awkward people blog.

Here is zee leest...
Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.

Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself

As you can see this isn't "how many siblings do you have, " or, "what's your pets name, " questions (2, and Noah FYI). These questions sort of poke at your core, the inner workings of the Denise we've all come to know and love.

Does the fact that I'm nervous about answering these make me seem like I've got a lot to hide? Does it make you curious? Should I do it? Should I tab them?

Ugh!! I just don't even know.


  1. I think you're overreacting. The list isn't that private at all, in my opinion. I think it looks like fun; I vote you do it and tab it! :)

    Also, I hope you don't get anyone pregnant Denise... I will be disappoint.

    Now if you really want to get personal, AND fun, you should do this 2000 question thing. Man, I was pulling my hair out by the end, lol. In the end though, it's pretty cool.

  2. Go for it!

    Much as anything though, good to know I'm not the only that tries to kind of... read the writer's accent :p

  3. Dustin, I won't get anyone pregnant... for now.

    And Richard, you're accent, although I've never actually heard it, is a wonderful part of your blog. I also love the fact that you type "mum".

    I'm curious to hear an Englishman imitate a westerner’s accent. Us Ohio gals love that sort of thing *hehe*

  4. Haha! Thank you - reckon I'm a little way off imitating accents though - whenever I try it ends in tears :p

  5. Do it. Then you should also make a point to challenge others to do it. All of us lie to an extent in our blogs, sweet little nothings that just spice it up.

    Make it real. Everyone, unknowingly or not, loves real.

  6. Pretty cool list of topics, but I'm with gets a little personal. I'm hoping I don't run out of things to blog about, but if I do, I may have to put this list to use...

  7. I like Lace's comment. Every one of us lie to some extent. Of course we do, our blogs are our portal to the anonymous internet world (or most of the time). A special space for your 30 days of truth would be awesome, I'm gonna go check it out and consider getting it started myself.

    You should also consider the 101 in 1001. While you are setting yourself challenges like this!
