Take a deep breath and go public!!

Today, I'm going to announce that my blog is open for comments. With all the publicity and exposure I've had over the last 10 years, WHY is this so hard for me???? I think I said it before, but it's like giving a party and no one shows up, but you've got to send out the invitations, for crying out loud! :)

I've been experimenting (this is my second attempt to get a blog going) for a couple of years. I can't seem to decide what kind of voice I want to use....100% me or Minnie Pauz?

The website is all about menopause, nothing really personal there. The message board/forum is mostly about menopause and supporting each other, but there are areas where we talk about everything BUT menopause and there seems to be a need for that too. On the forum, everyone can start a conversation on a topic they're interested in, but here I have to choose the topic and everyone else responds. Hmmmm.....I just don't know.

A little voice in my head is saying to just "be yourself" and talk about whatever is on your mind at the time. Ok, that's what I'll do and then I'll ask others to join me here with their opinions.
Let's do it!! :)

Ready to go "live"?

I still haven't had the nerve to tell anyone about this spot. Silly, I guess, especially after all the attention I've had about Minnie Pauz and menopause. I just feel like this is the closest I've gotten to being the real me and do I want to put the real me out there for all to see/judge/criticize? I'm not quite sure.....

I've been the "real me" on the message board, but somehow that's different. On there I don't have to post every day and conversations go on without my input. On here, I have to decide what each day will be about and then hope that someone will respond.

I'm getting closer though....I might even give the address to the ladies on the forum and ask which format they prefer. That's a good way to tiptoe into the spotlight although I'm still not sure if the conversations should be all about menopause or just about babyboomers in general. The confusion is overwhelming at the moment!
