Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.
Writing, such a deeply personal practise, and a blog, a purely public space. A natural oxymoron, an inherent conflict. A stalemate was inevitable with two equally powerful considerations.
While life is all about contradictions, it's not always a question of either-or. Sometimes, it's this as well as that, and maybe a little more, and how you balance it all. However, knowing is not enough, we must do.
I turn over a new blog, and hope, amidst all the complexities, to find that elusive balance.
