I loved the profile on Marina Khorosh and her site, Dbag Dating, today on Garance Dore. Since I’ve rededicated myself to this little slice of the internet I call mine, I keep seeing signs that I should keep up the work. This article is a prime example. Here are a couple of my favorite snippets:
‘People always ask me: Do you think it’s still time to open a blog today? And I always respond yes, yes it’s time, however you do it. Because you never know what can happen when you give yourself a channel to express yourself.’
‘For days, I was plagued by doubt – was I really going to go against everything Russian literature had taught me about being a woman of mystery, and start airing my dirty laundry in front of my 1500+ Facebook friends? What if my dad decided to read it? What if my employer found out?’
‘And yet, I would be lying if I told you that writing hasn’t changed my life in every way.’
Sharing in this forum feels supremely natural to me. I love the joy it brings my life. I think I live more fully when I have to be clued in to the world around me enough to write about it. I was talking with my boyfriend Keith about it tonight and he said that it will always be worth it to be vulnerable enough to create. It’s scary, but it’s so worth it.
What’s your biggest dream in life? As silly as it sounds, being a blogger is mine and has been for at least the last seven years.
PS – we are thinking about getting a puppy! Will update tomorrow if we decide to do it. Who are we!?
