i'm staring at a blank computer screen.

and i have no idea what to write about - actually that's a complete and utter lie.

i have PLENTY of things i want to tell you guys about. plenty.

but i just can't.

not on this blog at least.

i'm stuck in this weird blogger dead zone - somewhere between being the young professional that if you know me you know i write this blog and the agitated 28 year old who just wants to vent to her readers.

yup, that's all i got.

but please answer me this, (so i don't feel like i'm the only person that has to censor themselves)...

if you could write about one topic on your blog that you currently don't touch with a ten foot pole what would it be?

  1. That happens to me too. There are times I worry that I have nothing to write about and then something somehow manages to happen and it gives me material.

    The one topic I don't write about on my blog that I wish I could but don't is the stuff I write in my journal. The real deep personal stuff, you know broken hearts, emotions, love and all that crap.

  2. I don't write about sex on my blog...but that would be because I write a food blog.

  3. are you kidding! while i'm completely open with what i wite about...i don't ever touch on boys, work or conflicts with friends. i don't think that started intentionally cause for a while my blog was just a place about 5 people visited, but as more eyes see it, i've become stricter with my commentary.

    however, if i get in a good situation with a boy (someday, hopefully) - you probably won't be able to get me to shut up ;)

  4. Friend problems (because, um, some of said friends read my blog).

    Nothing exciting I know.

  5. my boyfriend and my relationship problems with him. I cant write it because he checks on my blog too. That really sucks. It also made me cant write about gorgeous eye candies in real life.

    That would just make us fight and that'd be annoying.

  6. hmm I write about everything I guess, but I sometimes want to write about religion and my views but I have made a choice not to write about it on my blog. I leave out religion

    ReplyDelete
  7. Sex. I just don't have the balls.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Work.

    This beef I've got with a friend (who reads my blog)

    A major concern I have for another friend that NOBODY seems to pick up on (also reads my blog).

    My thoughts on Religion...

    Oh, wait. You said only one.

    *ahem*

  9. Easy - sex.

    My mother and grandmother read my blog. Mom could maybe handle hearing about it. Grandma - I don't think so.

    ReplyDelete
  10. im just careful about work. because of all our privacy hoop-la. i think there are ways around it.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I really wish I could vent about my current family issues... but that would just promote more insensitive and cruel words being tossed in my direction.

    ReplyDelete
  12. My two off-limit topics are the specifics of my job and why I really think my relationship with my now ex-boyfriend went astray. There's juicy stuff involved in both, and I'd love to write about it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I feel like this all the time, which is the main reason I used to write semi-anonymous. But now that people know who I am, I definitely don't talk about all the things I'd like to - like sex or venting about work.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Most of the time I just wish that I could really write the uncencored truth - with no ramifications. My mom and MIL both read my site - so anything pertaining to sex is immediately off limits.

    And, there are lots of things that I really feel and would like to express through writing - but would be uncomfortable saying out loud to people. Since my blog isn't anonymous I can't go there.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Work, well more specifically what I do for work and how frustrating it can be, but with all sorts of forms I signed thats not possible.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Work/Family.

    I've recently found out that my Mom & Sister are devoted readers which has me sign about more things that I would usually write about.

    But honestly, that's probably a good thing. It's just also frustrating! lol

    So I twitter about both, and protect my tweets cause I'm cagey.

    ReplyDelete
  17. pretty much anything i used to write about. past relationships, too much detail about sex, that's about it really. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. The major problems and complaints that I have with my next door neighbor.

    j/k


    so excited for tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I was *thisclose* to writing about this same topic last night. I completely avoid most personal topics because certain people read my blog and it frustrates me to no end.

    Also, I have some really crazy customer stories, but because of liability issues with work, I avoid them.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I can't say I don't touch this with a 10 foot pole but I don't talk as much as I would like about my ex-boyfriend. He reads my blog and while I would like to go into detail about our drama (esp to get opinions from my readers!), I can't air our business knowing he reads it because it's not fair to him. I also don't talk about when my real life friends annoy me (thankfully doesn't happen often) because a lot of them read it also.

    ReplyDelete
  21. i hear you honey.

    i dont write too too much about sex.
    unless it's a thursday.
    hmm.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hhmm...

    If I had severe marital problems, I wouldn't touch that. Friends cheating on spouses.
    Other bloggers (if I didn't like them)
    If I wasn't Anon...Work. I wouldn't talk about work.

  23. Juicy relationship stuff (good and bad) or venting about friends.

    Hey - I was actually just thinking today about opening up my "I Shake My Fist At You" blog to anonymous (or not, depending on what people want) rants. So - if you have a rant you really want posted, maybe you can email it to me for that site.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It happens to all of us at some point.

    I tend not to write about more sensitive family related topics, politics (other than the fluffy "Yes We Can!" type post), my opinions on hot topic issues, etc.

    Oops, that was more than one!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can talk about anything except for how psycho and crazy my friend is. Because somehow she has the link to my blog. I sometimes hate that I cannot vent to my blog, its the only thing I can't do.

    ReplyDelete
  26. oh my god my FRIENDS. Early on, I decided that my best friends should all read my blog. And I can't tell you how many times since then I have wanted to come on and just pound out a rant blog about one of them. Especially recently when one is just repeatedly pissing my off and doing ridiculous things that would make great stories.

    For example, one of my friends is the worst PDAer of ALL TIME. Like disgusting, makes me puke in my mouth, can't invite her and her bf to parties anymore because it is so fucking bad. But I can't write about it because she reads.

    But you know what? In the long run, I think it is good that that is the case. Because at the end of the day, it makes me a better person to not trash my friends (in writing, anyway) for the world to see.

    Although I really really wish i could sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sex.

    Too many people read my blog to get in to all that juicy stuff.

    Like my mother! Family dinners can be awkward enough as it is. No need to fuel the fire. lol

  29. You know what's crazy? For the past three months, I've really been looking forward to my company officially going out of business, so I could blog about it already.

    And the good news is that I wrote unpublished posts while I was waiting, so I could drown my readers in angst all this week without having to come up with something new.

    I hope your private topic is at least a little happier...

    ReplyDelete
  30. I will never blog about my evil twin living in my dresser.

    Mostly 'cause he won't let me.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This post could not be more perfectly timed. Because if I could write about anything on my blog, I'd be writing about why I'm not writing on my blog for the rest of the week. And it would feel soooooo good to do it, too.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh girlie, you know me. I put it ALL out there.

    But there is one thing that will someday come out... I'm just not ready to do it yet. Someday... when I'm brave enough.

    Chin up, lover.

    ReplyDelete
  33. my ex best friend, and why we're no longer friends.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I avoid too much talk about work. and i don't mention the fact that i know two of my exes are reading my blog on the sly. mainly because the two are related i suppose (the two different issues, not the two exes, I feel I should clarify!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Anything that resembles b*tching about work, home life, husband, money, family, etc. ...

    What the heck do I really write about than?!

    Perhaps I should start writing about these things.... I still struggle with really opening up and writing what I want because I know who reads my blog, and I would hate to worry/offend them...

    ReplyDelete
  36. How little sex people are really having..even if they don't admit it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I struggled with self-censorship for a long time. I have a "mommy blog" so I thought all I could write about was how fabulous my kids are & what a perfect mom I am. Yeah right.
    I finally started being honest with myself and my readers. Now I write more about the funny side, the dirty side, all the parts where I screw up...You know, the good stuff.
    I guess now the only thing I don't write about is banging my husband since my Mother-in-law reads my blog. That would be crossing the line.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Definitely more about my past and current relationships. I tried to avoid it - but my uber ex reads my blog, and now my boyfriend reads my blog. Both of which don't allow for any true thoughts or introspection about two major loves in the last 10 years of my life. Boo. Guess I'll just have to write in my diary with a lock on it! lol.
    That last line was a joke.

    ReplyDelete
  39. ummm if i was an anonymous blogger or i knew that my family wasn't reading i'd probably talk about sex a bit oooooor my obsession with celebrities...errr wait. haha.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I guess I would talk more about my personal life.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Anything I wouldn't want my parents to read, since one of my sissies told them about my blog and they read it religiously. Which means I can't get into the *juicy* parts of dating, if you know what I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  42. looks like sex is a common theme here : )

    these are great thought out answers though. thanks for all the honesty.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Honestly, I would write about work more and people who irritate me. But that can't happen. I still think of starting an anonymous blog sometimes but know that won't work out.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I pretty much let it all hang out there.

    ... maybe that's my problem.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Relationship stuff. I used to write about everything I felt because it helped me understand what was going on, but it hurt the person I was with at the time, and I'm afraid of doing that again.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I also miss writing about some relationship stuff that I used to, but now can't because my boyfriend, all his friends and both sets of his parents now read my blog every day.

    So, I censor.

    ReplyDelete
  47. ju reads my blog. so hrm. i haven't had this problem yet, but if i had a REALLY BIG SECRET from her, my blog would have to be out of the loop on it.

    and work.

    sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  48. We don't talk about politics or religion -- a rule that I wish our families abided by. . .

    *sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  49. Definitely my in-laws and how much they try to ruin my relationship with my husband (thankfully it doesn't work, but it causes us stress). It's exactly why I shut down my old blog this week and started a new one that they don't have the link to.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would write about my fucking asscock of a boss.

    ReplyDelete
  51. sadly, my blog is only 50% of what it used to be - particularly the stories of what I may or may not have done while excessively drinking - because too many people started reading who might not otherwise appreciate that behavior (and would tell me about or result in some consequence)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I feel you on this one!

    I'd like to write more about work and the negative side of things just to let it out. But I won't touch that ever simply because I'm terrified of someone from corporate finding my blog. And that fear is totally irrational.

    ReplyDelete
  53. i would right about my roommate....who currently follows my blog, religiously.

    we are best friends, but she is also my roommate/landlord. makes an interesting and totally blogworthy topic

    ReplyDelete

comments are cool. this is a fact.
