Here’s What I Expect From You

This post can also be permanently found on the new “Expectations of my Readers” page, which can be found in the top menu of my home page.

Here’s what I expect from you, as a reader of my blog:

Respect: Negative or derogatory comments will not be tolerated. This is a place where mutual respect is expected and anyone not willing to accept that will be blocked from commenting. That said, I love receiving comments from my readers, so please don’t be afraid to respectfully do so. I do my best to respond to all of the comments I’m left.

Understanding: I have been hesitant to share details of my romantic relationship with the blogsphere this time around. In the past I’ve done what most girls do and I’ve vented via my blog or to my friends about parts of my relationship that frustrate me, and it was sometimes received as though I wasn’t happy in my relationship(s). Please understand that what I write here is my story, version of events and feelings, being expressed my way due to past or present experiences. Every relationship has ups and downs, as well as strong and weak points. The main purpose of this blog is for me to work out those weak points and to share and learn so that I may become better at being someone’s significant other, and develop the strongest, healthiest relationship possible.

No Judgement: I do my best to live my life without judging others choices or life paths. I am not perfect at it. This is a difficult task and is something I consciously have to do every day. Trying to remember that we are all only human and a product of our environment, helps me to be compassionate to others and even to relate to them. I may not agree with the decisions of my friends or some of my fellow bloggers, but I respect them and I do my best to accept them as they are. Please make the same effort for me.

Communication: I love receiving comments and emails from my readers. I especially love to hear your stories and experiences, which might be similar to mine. If you’re not comfortable leaving a comment on my blog, please feel free to email me  directly at intriguemeblogs (at) gmail (dot) com.

Introducing the “My Story” Page

I’ve spent a lot of time lately, contemplating the direction of this blog. The fact of the matter is that there isn’t one, not really. This blog is about me and every aspect of my life. I don’t write strictly about love and dating, or grief, or money, or what I ate for breakfast. I blog about it all. So for that reason I have created the “My Story” page which you will see a tab for at the top of my homepage. The My Story page is meant to summarize the events in my life which have lead to the content on this blog. Because I tend to jump around a lot in my posts, I thought it could be helpful for new and old readers to keep it all straight.

You’re welcome.
