A Light Post.

April 3, 2009

I just stumbled upon yet another twentysomething’s blog today and she was discussing why it’s important for her to blog everyday.

Frankly, blogging everyday was never very important to me. My best posts are the ones when something has happened and I need to share it, and most of the time the only “diabetic” things happening to me are a never ending series of high blood sugars, low blood sugars and occasionally a normal one snuck in for kicks. I could blog about my eating habits (which are atrocious), my exercise habits (which are negligible) or the fact I was rocking a 300 mg/dl last night before seeing Mary Tyler Moore in New York City (which is just embarrassing, to be honest). As I’ve said before, I can only write about my low and high blood sugar episodes so many times before I want to say, “Remember the last time this happened? Yeah, it was like that. Only some place else.”

Even if I wasn’t solely focused on diabetes, my life, to me, doesn’t seem all that interesting. But I rarely delve deep into my emotions on this blog (save for when it comes to diabetes burnout) and sometimes I’m a little too jaded that I don’t even think the two little girls on the subway screaming while their young mothers chit-chatted about the “who-did-what-to-who-and-when” gossip. I’m pretty sure I was not the only subway passenger who wanted to scream, “Would you do SOMETHING?! COME ON MAN!”

But I digress.

This blogger, who I mentioned, referred to the blog post I was reading as a “light post.” Which sounded to me like a “light meal,” like when you eat a “light lunch” before Thanksgiving dinner or a wedding so you don’t explode with calories and carbohydrates. And I think that’s what this blog post will be. There’s not much of a point to it, other than to keep you somewhat satisfied until there’s something even better.

I’ll be back on Monday with a recap of meeting Mary Tyler Moore and what she said during her lecture-slash-interview. Tonight’s event should also provide some blog material, and hopefully next week I’ll come back sounding like the girl who leads the exciting and happening New York City life that so many of my friends have said they envied (though I envy their low rents and short commutes).

So save some room for next week.

    Hi Allison,

    Thanks for the link. I don’t think blogging everyday is necessary for everyone – I never tried to do it until sometime last year – but I think it keeps me in a good mental place for writing, which I have to do to pay the bills. I’m definitely not interesting enough to write about everyday. That’s why I try to take in the craziness around me as much as possible. My commutes on the 2/3 are a good start. 🙂
