Don't freak out, change can be good...

I noticed that people haven’t really been blogging much lately.

I thought it was just me, and I felt bad for slacking on posting and commenting. However, slowly some of my favorite bloggers are disappearing, posting less and less.

I started this blog, because I was going through a really hard time. (* tear *) A small piece of that time in my life had to do with me having no direction. A part of me didn’t care, which I found out, is normal. (So is going to the movies by yourself and thinking you’re a ninja, cuz’ I am). I liked my wild ways, and me, but another part of me understood that I needed to get my shit together. Yes, I said shit.

Blogging became therapeutic and I fell in love with writing all over again. Writing and I soon came to enjoy romantic dinners and long walks on the beach, as we gazed adoringly into each others creativity. We connected. We vibed. More importantly, writing took my mind off of my crazy life. I was able to get my racing thoughts into cyberspace and out of my head.

In the beginning I would just tell stories of the crazy things that happened to me during the day, in relation to men, booze, my job, etc. Eventually those stories turned into an addiction. Never in my life had I been able to write and say what I wanted to say, with such positive and witty feedback.

So I guess what I am trying to say is that I am still here. I’m still Ms Fresh Banana Puddin’, but as things in my life are evolving expect to see some changes in my writing.

Thanks for reading. Thanks for being my blogging family. Thanks for being you. ;p

Ms Smack said...

I found you via Steph, from Much Ado about Sumthin and I can see why she's linked you.

This is a fantastic post. I love the way you've written blogging like a love/hate affair. So true!

Sometimes I love it, cry with it, run away from it - this is a fantastic post.

I hope this doesn't mean you'll be blogging less. I couldn't care less what you actually blog about - it's your writing voice I come here for. And the nachos.

She W0rd Hustlez said...

Thank goodness! I thought you might disappear too girl. I haven't been blogging on here for long, but have truly enjoyed reading all of your blogs. They are very entertaining and it helps me see that even the fucked up things I go through are alright. I laugh about it and move on. You're right change is good though. Whatever those changes may be, I can't wait to read about them.

MsPuddin said...

Skinny girl- I’m glad you found me too! * hug *

Ms smack- yeah steph is a blogger that will go down in the blogging hall of fame…I’m glad you are enjoying yourself.

John- oooo there’s nachos? This is blasphemy! How come I didn’t know about this? Well thanks for your support. ;p

She word- no I don’t want to disappear altogether. One of my favorites did that a few months ago and I was devastated. Yup. I believe everyone goes through the same shit, just some people have a better sense of humor than others…

d- right? We are the last of the Mohicans. (I hate saying that, in reference to the Natives and all), but we are! I’m glad you’re still around too. I’ve been busy celebrating my success, but I finally linked to your new spot!

Karrie b- oh. Are you a ninja too?

Poca- miss lady, you have been MIA too. Lady C had to explain to me what was going on w your blog lol I missed that post.

c.watson said...

Change is good. Just don't leave. I like reading about how often you lose your panties because you are the only person I know if with that predilection.

anonymousnupe said...

Ah, but after the long walks on the beach, romantic dinners, all that foreplay, can Writing fanger you like you deserve to be fangered? Huh?

NYCPonderings Chick said...

HEY LADY...YES, I HEAR YOU, I FEEL LIKE WE ARE ALL CHANGING A BIT...ALTHOUGH I AM SURE NO MATTER WHAT GENRE YOU POST, I WILL STILL BE INTERESTED IN READING...SOMETIMES IT IS A GOOD THING TO EVOLVE...

Lady Cameleon said...

You know something Ms. P....You are a great free spirited individual....and your writing is powerful. You introduced me just as a reader on this thing here...Thank you for that introduction, thank you for staying true to you, and thank you for reminding me that it is okay to "jus be me".

That Saddity Chic said...

It's cool to take time off. So have I.

One Man’s Opinion said...

Blogging is fun, sometimes we just don't have the time to devote to it. I can understand that. Plus, change is good. Write what makes you happhy and we will feel that. It's your blog so you do you. 'nuff said.

One Man’s Opinion said...

Hey! How come Barleycorn gets nachos!

ms. P, of course ;-)

It's a dance, really. Some people really jump in and mix it up only to burn out on the floor quickly. Other waltz in and skip around for a while. Some like watching on the side wishing they could move so fluidly and others could care less who's watching as they gyrate and do thier own thing.

Keep your head up and dance for as long as you feel the mood to strike. It can only lead to a good time, puddin'. *wink*

Afrodite said...

I've noticed that the bloggers have been falling off too. I blame the weather! Puddin' you know people get ghost in summertime.

Indeed, I think that my writing changes depending on the city, the state, the mental state, my surroundings....EVERYTHING, as well as the frequency of my writing. Sometimes I'm writing everyday, other days I dont feel like I have anything that I need to release, of get snarky about, or WHATEVER. Some days I feel its better for me to keep my thoughts in and let them develop before theyre out floating around prematurely, I need them to marinate for depth....anyway, I'm still here, still reading- not commenting nearly as much on anyones blogs and not writing as much....but thats just for now....
