I walk the line...

I walk the line.... Strains of that Johnny Cash song run through my head.

Well, I also have the tune of Lady GaGa's Eh, Eh in my mind ... And Bruno Mars' Juat The Way You Are.

But it's Walk the Line that I want to write about . Because it describes the blogging experience .

I blog to share with family and friends. I blog about our life, as unschoolers, hence the title Living Without School. It is my personal blog. I write of our life , my life , our experiences, my experiences, our interests, my interests.

If you check the 1, 222 ( now 1,223!) blog posts since 2005, you will see a variety of posts on a variety of topics. Reflecting current interests.

In recent times, that interest has been the public liturgy of the Church.

I post our every day stuff, the liturgical year, to friends on Facebook. I tend, since the advent of Facebook, to publish D & M stuff only here on the blog, and daily stuff on Facebook.... D & M as in Deep and Meaningful. For me. As much as I can be deep and meaningful I guess.

And so I walk the line. How much to post? How much of me to share?

But, ultimately, the fact remains that this is my blog.

It is not a public discussion forum. It is not an online debate.

It is, pure and simple, my blog .

You don't have to read it if you don't want to. Or if you don't like the posts. Or my writing style.

Read other blogs if not mine .

It's okay.

I will continue to blog. To share my life without school. To share my interests.

To try to walk the line.

Hi Leonie,

I have often wanted to write to you to tell you how much I like to read your writing! Thank you for blogging. I bet you have more readers out there who also appreciate what you write. I read your blog as often as I can and enjoy it very much. I find it encouraging. I am sorry it took me so long to tell you! :-)
