Hello! It’s time for another #BehindTheBlogger writing prompt.
Today’s #BehindTheBlogger writing prompt and link up topic is “Dear Childhood Me” Please check out my previous #BehindTheBlogger articles which will be linked at the bottom of this post as well. Also please note the link up at the bottom of this article. Other wonderful bloggers share their articles from this week’s prompt as well. If you are a blogger and would like to join us please do! There will be a link for you to click on to join us below this article right above the link up list.
Each of us who are part of the #BehindTheBlogger group can write whatever comes to mind in regard to the prompt. Sometimes funny, usually introspective, other times enlightening, we all reveal a part of ourselves in these posts. I hope you are enjoying them and please leave a comment.
I have always been one to see both sides of a situation. I think it goes back to being a debate scholar in high school. We had to argue both sides of some very important topics from social issues to politics in a competitive format. I loved debate competitions and I was quite good at it. It made me consider going into law when I was entering college. My college career was very short lived needless to say.
Regardless thinking about our #BehindTheBlogger topic today, Stand For Something, I can honestly say that there have not been many times in my life where I stood up for any specific social issue, at least not in a public format. Working from home for over fifteen years may be one reason I can remove myself from people reaching out to me to do so, or avoiding the harsh realities of the world we live in. I am somewhat sheltered from a lot of things going on around in our society. Because I rarely watch television news (because who can we really trust anymore on television?) I rarely really now what is going on “out there”.
Yes there have been times in my personal life I have felt wronged, or felt that someone I love has been wronged, and I have attempted to stand up for others a time or two, to no avail as sadly our local legal system is severely lacking.
With all that said, I feel that my blog is a way for me to stand for something, even if only every now and then. I would like to think that I sometimes do this through these very articles and I am thankful for being a part of the #BehindTheBlogger series and am hopeful that in time more bloggers will join us. This is a great forum to help others by allowing them to view things through our eyes.
I also recently wrote an article that is very important to me and I hope will somehow, even if in a very small way bring about change. I would love for you to read that article as well, you can find it here:

What do YOU stand for? #empowerment #advice #advocate #behindtheblogger
Now, I can argue any side of any topic, if need be. I can convince most anyone of my side (whatever side I need to defend at the time), which again is due to my training as a debate scholar. This drives my husband, and others in my family crazy! I can not even say in all earnest that it is a positive character trait! However, it is how I think, and who I am. I should reconsider that law degree.
Thank you for reading a story from #BehindTheBlogger Hop. Every 2 weeks a group of bloggers is given a writing prompt. These prompts are very open ended, so our bloggers can write about whatever they desire. The main rule is that their blog post directly relates to the topic of that week. The point of this hop is for our readers to get to know us on a personal level.
Please hop along and read all of the blog posts in this weeks hop. Just click the links below. If you want real and raw emotion, then you will find it here. After you read each post, please comment and share. We want to get to know you too!
I love comments! Please join in discussion, ask questions, or leave tips for other readers. Comments truly are the driving force behind any blog as it helps the blogger to know what you, the reader want to see more of!
