Short Posts vs. Long Posts

I've heard, often, that people don't like to read long blog posts - and that's probably true. I am writing today in defense of myself and my ultra-long blog posts. Short posts? Never heard of 'em. OK, so maybe I've heard of 'em but I certainly don't do them...often. Occasionally, I might post something I find amusing or a snippet of a brain wave I had - and those posts are short, for the most part. Otherwise, my posts are inevitably long. I can't help myself. I just have so much to say and I cannot write anything without detail upon detail. Can you ever forgive me? I guess the problem lies in the fact that I write like I talk. A LOT! My poor Hubby is constantly tuning me out because most of the time what I'm saying just isn't interesting to him. The times when I do, in fact, have something important to say, I have to make absolutely certain he's listening to me, and then he gets frustrated. I know he doesn't always listen, but then again, neither do I. I'm that strangely unique individual who likes to talk and can listen 'till the cows come home, but at the same time, also prefers peace and quiet. It's so hard for me to come home sometimes to the chaos I know is waiting for me - all the chatter and TV noise and just daily goings on - but I wouldn't trade it. I just wait for the time when all is quiet and I'm lying in bed listening to the ringing in my ears waiting for sleep to overtake me. Does that means I'm conflicted on a lot of levels? TTFN JMS

Probably! But it certainly makes you more interesting! :)

Was that supposed to UP-LIFT me?

Sometimes I feel that I can't always get my point across with a short post, thus I write detaile heavy long ones.

Remember the verse, "To thine own self be true?" Always be true to yourself. You do not owe others an explanation of yourself, and some people could not be uplifted if you used a crane!
I look forward to reading your blogs. They do uplift me at times when I need it.
As for hubby, grab him by the ears and say, "Now hear this!" JK!
