A friend told me this week that the blogs I publish outside this space are much nicer than the ones here, so this is my gentle public service reminder: World Famous Katbox is my personal blog, not my business blog. On my personal blog, I’ll talk about whatever’s on my mind, and if we are honest with each other, I doubt even the nicest among us are all rainbows and unicorns 24/7. Just as often as we are happy or wildly in love, we are disappointed, angry, or all alone.
Posting in the Katbox has kept me sane through divorce and other important breakups. When one of my friends and I parted ways over an ethical difference, it was this space that allowed me to save myself and not take to the bed for a week. Sometimes what I have to say is not so nice on this blog, but I always speak my truth, my perspective, not an effort to defame anyone else.
If you cheated on me, hit me, lied to me, lied about me, and/or did my kid wrong, you shouldn’t be surprised to see me vent here. You knew I was a writer and a blogger, and writers write. I protect you by never naming real names here, so your guilt and shame are yours to carry around; I never named you specifically, never called you out by name, place, nor the specifics of your wrongdoings.
Some days, Katbox blog posts will be not so nice, and that’s okay, because this is my space. I invite you to read in case something resonates with you, connects, and we can move forward in this together.
