I think I was born with a guilty conscience 🙂 … I try to work on it, but when I go back to my native country, it comes back again, to hit me like a rock!
There, I think they tend to go overboard with the gender equality. That’s one part of the whole issue. When I go back, people ask me what it’s like, living abroad, and inevitably the question arises: «What do you do there?» [meaning work]. When I explain that I don’t work, most of them [women] will ask «…but what do you DO all day???!!!», in a certain tone of voice. That’s when the guilt kicks in again.
I could tell them the truth. I get up in the morning, turn on the computer and stay online most of the day LOL … then they’d faint. I have NO problem whatsoever passing the time. There, however, that’s not okay … women have to work, have to have a career, even if they have a bunch of kids! They have to be equal: «I took out the trash yesterday, so today it’s your turn!» Even in the government it’s 50/50 men and women.
I could tell them I maintain three blogs, but that would only result in them saying: «blogs?!?!!!» in a tone as if it was a dirty word … «…what would YOU have to to write about??», so I keep that to myself.
What I really wanted to say in this post was: I have thought about this blogging thing. I have these two, Tassitus here and my ordinary colderweather.me. I’m not going to give up any of them.
- Tassitus will be kept for a little more personal stuff … you know, whatever comes to mind. Could be about life, TV-series … whatever fluffy stuff that’s in my head.
- Everything else, like the weekly photo challenge, and all that, will go into colderweather as usual.
That’s it! Now I won’t have to feel guilty for having two blogs, do I?! 😀
