I do not write this blog to educate others. I am not here to give you instruction or advice. There have been times that people have read my blog and thought perhaps I would have some advice, or experiences to share, and they’ve written to me through my publicized e-mail, and they received the advice and they’ve received more details. Through a private conversation.
If you want to know what it’s like to be a lawyer-mom, then you’re going to have to find people who want to tell you what it’s like. You don’t have the luxury of just browsing the internet and stumbling on this blog, which is MINE (not yours), and having that particular detail of my life exposed to you.
Blogs are public.
My job is important to me.
It is not the fodder for public commentary.
Regardless of the “honesty” that you feel I have somehow committed to just by using up this URL.
Having a blog has NOTHING to do with my livelihood. I will not risk one for the sake of the other.
If you want “honesty” from people – dig a little fucking deeper than clicking on a link. That’s not where real sharing comes from in my life.
Real sharing comes from a give and a take – from an investment in each other’s lives. From some sort of trust which – in my opinion – cannot be built amongst strangers.
So if you want more – give more. Make a fucking effort. Don’t just sit there whining about other people’s choices and other people’s refusal to hand you your life’s research on a platter.
