Dear Blog…

Dear Blog,

I’m sorry it’s been so long since I visited you.  I really have missed you, but I have something to confess.  We have had some wonderful times these past few months.  You have made me grow in ways that I never imagined I could.  I have found there is a voice in me that has been dying to break out for years.  You have provided me with so much support that even my friends and complete strangers can look to you to see the newness in me.

It pains me to tell you this.  I’ve been cheating on you.  It’s a new relationship and I didn’t plan for it to happen.  One day I was surfing the interwebs when I saw a new page and my heart fluttered.  It was so unexpected.  I thought “How can I do this?”  But, I did it anyway.  And I have to say, I’m not sorry…I don’t regret it one bit. 

I’ve started a new blog and it’s completely different from you.  It’s caters to the parent in me.  The woman who wants to give advice and help others.  It has such wonderful potential, how could I say no? 

I think it’s only fair that you know who it is:

Please don’t be mad.  I know it’s not what we planned, but I still love you dearly.  You will always be my first and that is something truly meaningful to me.  And as long as you’ll have me, I’d like to still continue our relationship.  I know it’s not entirely conventional, but I think we can manage.  I will continue to give you the attention I have in the past as best I can.  You open doors for me that this new page could never do on its own. 

I want you to know how important you are to me.  Please don’t think that my love for you has diminished because it can only keep growing as I continue to visit and fill your pages.  It may be difficult to keep up with, but I know we can work it out. 

Love, Me
