Tell us about the blog post you were most nervous to publish — and what it was like to set it free.

I haven’t been nervous about publishing my posts, at least the ones on my personal blog. I haven’t yet shared any deep dark secrets about myself, that may come later in life or not. When I do share my thoughts about my struggles with anorexia and my recovery, I am not nervous about sharing them, on the contrary I hope that if someone can be helped or at least feels that they aren’t alone, that makes writing about it even easier.

On the other hand, my political blog is a different story. There have been a few instances when I have had less then amiable comments or responses. While at the moment of publishing, nervousness isn’t part of my mindset, sometimes after I click the publish button, I reread what I have written and say to myself “this might not go over very well with some people who disagree with my political philosophy” and more often than not, I do get a negative response telling me how incredibly wrong I am and my views are what is destroying America. At first it was difficult to read those comments because it felt very personal but now I have come to accept them for what they are, a difference of opinion and thinking, I am free to think how I think and it’s my blog. So if they do not like it, they do not have to read it.
