Being a RedBerry.

Being a RedBerry is hard stuff.  You gotta be awesome all the time. :P

In all seriousness, I've been struggling to think about what to write about. Honest. Because all this stuff has been happening, and it's all been weird. But I don't know if I should share it. Coz it's perfect and private and personal. But at the same time, this is anonymous and even if you guys know who I am, it's not that private that I'd be embarassed if you knew.

I'm struggling a little with this blog. Mainly because I began writing as a way to release all me pent up emotions regarding marriage (mainly) and life. I think my friends had grown tired of my incessant talking, and I needed to share with a wider range of opinions, which Alhamdulillah I think I've reached. Strangely enough, as soon as I began this blog...things started falling into place in the strangest of ways. I'm at a bit of a loss as to how/why this happened. But there we are, He is the Best of Planners.

So. Where to go from here? I'm scared that if I carry on writing, it'll just be a narrative of why Mr RedBerries is so awesome. Why I think he is awesome. Why we are awesome together. Why he is the cutest, sweetest, bestest, awesomest person I've ever had the blessing to have in my life. You see, I'm doing it already. I'm sure other people might find me a bit nauseating.

I want to carry on. I like this blog. But as one blogger once wrote, and I paraphrase here; we can't just write for the sake of writing. Because there are some things which are meant to be personal, and if you share them it has to be with good reason. If I write something, I want those reading to gain some sort of benefit out of it, even if it's the simple act of laughter. I physically can't write about the mundane acts of my day and expect people to waste their precious time reading it.

I know blogging isn't for everyone else, it's for the writer. Readers flock to a good writer. I'm not really knowledgeable enough to turn it into a blog about Islam. Seriously man, I'm leaving that to the professionals. I'm just a tad confused.
