What happens when you try to keep your blog as a secret...

As you must know, making the decision of having this blog was pretty difficult for me. When I decided I would write my feelings and ideas, I was determined to keep it unknown to anyone else until I felt ready for them to read The Little Thoughts of my everyday.
Luckily for me, the exposure of my blog was a "series of unfortunate events" I must say. When you love a guy like my boyfriend, to keep your blog secret seems impossible, especially when he gets so excited about your new projects; this one wasn't the exception. Yesterday, he put a link on BUZZ so anyone could read "Fear" and leave their comments. Even his brother took a look at it! Fortunately, he did liked it.
Earlier today, editing my Twitter profile, I put this blog as my web site, knowing that maybe only my new followers would check it out. Making a joke to one of my friends on Twitter, he realized he wasn't following me and when he gave me the respective followback, he noticed I had a blog. Quickly, he post that "amazing" fact on Twitter and, once again, every one of our common friends would know.
Lesson: If you decide to leave your fears aside, do it right. Don't be afraid of what they may think or even say, be afraid of not knowing how good you could have been because you didn't even try, because you didn't give you a chance.
I am making the decision, will you?

I've been thinking of having a blog for my own a while now and decided it was time for me to leave my FEARS aside and start to write what I think and feel. For me, it's hard to start something new, especially when I think I'm not and I won't be good at it, so "why even bother?".
A friend of mine, my best friend and actually more than just "my friend", told me that if I didn't have any good reasons for not doing it, only excuses, I should try to have a blog, that I would enjoy it. He also said that if I didn't do it, it would be a waste because he thinks I DO have interesting things to say. "You should really go for it" he said. "I think you'll like it and it'll make you happy". And that's why I'm here in the middle of the night, "writing" my very first entry.
"I really think that not doing it because of FEAR is stupid, especially when is something simple to start." He told me that I can stop this if I didn't like it, but at least I would know why I didn't. FEAR is a very powerful feeling when decisions are made and I've decided that it doesn't matter how hard this can be for me, I should AT LEAST give it a try.
And now, think-love-write, the little thoughts of my everyday begins...
