Blog Friend Feature: One of the Funniest Bloggers Ever

So, I'm not very creative with my title this morning, but honestly, today's blog friend feature has a blog that keeps me laughing. No matter what she is blogging about, she always finds the humor. Not only that, but she occasionally makes these fabulous cartoons that I may have begged her to do for her post today...you know, if she felt like it.

Meet Helena of Life in the Pitts! Some of her recent posts that had me cracking up are If You Loved Me, You'd Change My Diaper and her take on follow hops. You'll get a good giggle, I promise.

I'm actually sort of tempted to set her and her husband up on a blind couple date with my younger brother and his wife, since they live in the same town and I think that they would have so much fun together except that I worry that that is a little weird and stalkerish and then I'd have to explain to my brother how I know her.... which is really fuuny, given what Helena wrote about in her guest post today!
Isn't she adorable?

Hi guys! I'm Helena.

When Shell asked me to be her BFF today, I got up and did a happy dance.

(Am I the only one who thinks of her as a celebrity?)

I've been a follower of Shell for forever (approximately), and she is so supportive. I'd say the only flaw in our relationship is the fact that I hate her.

Hate her? What?

Well, I guess the correct term for it would be "crippling jealousy."

It's not because she is fabulous (she is fabulous), or because she is nicer than I am (she is nicer than I am). Our relationship could handle that.

It's because she is anonymous.

No one in real life knows about her blog, and just thinking about that freedom is enough to make me want to smack her in the face.

...See? She is a much nicer person than I am.

I guess I'm really not mad at her. I'm mad at myself.

The benefits of blogging anonymously are obvious. You have freedom to write about anything. Your job. Your friends. Your mother in law. Change a few names, and you can say whatever you want, without censoring yourself.

Sounds like heaven, doesn't it?

But I didn't start anonymously. And at this point, I just can't give up my very-much-public blog. So in an attempt to get over my crazy jealous rage (and maybe save our friendship?), I am going to come up with a list of good things about blogging as yourself.


Ok, there have to be a few. Hang on, I'll think of something....

....Ok I think I've got some.

This last one is my favorite. And also the scariest.

I like to blog about everything. From the time I peed on my best friends floor, to what I think about when I'm in bed with my husband.

Not really things I want my mother in law to read.

(but she does, and she does not approve)

It's hard not to censor yourself when you know that people at church are reading what you write.

But if you find your voice, and write from your heart, the honesty will shine through. And honesty is attractive. It will reach out to people that you know, and those you don't know, and when they learn more about you, they will learn about themselves.

Sometimes I cringe before hitting the publish button. Sometimes I think "there go all my followers," or maybe "there go all my friends."

But I do it anyway.

And those posts? The raw and honest ones, the embarrassingly funny ones, the ones that give some not-so-pleasant insights into my character flaws, and the way things work inside my head?

Those are my best posts.

They are the ones that people relate to more.

They are the ones that get noticed, and shared, and talked about.

And they are the ones that make your real-life friends (and old schoolmates, and church leaders, and everybody else who has been secretly reading your blog) look at you, and see you.

They stop seeing you on your best behavior. They stop seeing you when you are trying to be nice. They stop seeing you as that awkward teenager, or that quiet co-worker (not that you should let your coworkers read your blog. Ever), or that crazy, messy co-ed that you used to be. Instead, they see who you really are.

Maybe they will like you. Maybe they will hate you.

But they will see you.

And chances are, they will also see themselves.

My husband Kurt has had friends, classmates, and even old roommates tell him "My wife reads Helena's blog all the time." Sometimes they will tease him about posts that they've read themselves.

"So, Andrew, huh?"

He's getting used to it.

But I'm not.

#3 on my list really happens. It's intimidating meeting someone for the first time, and hearing them say "Oh my gosh, I read your blog!"

My smile freezes, and all I can think is "....Well shit. Now they're going to expect me to be funny in real life." (and I'm not. I'm mostly just awkward.)

But in the end, I am happy with my decision to blog publicly. Or rather, my decision to stick with it, even after I realized my mistake.

I chose to be real in spite of it. To be me. To let me flaws shine through, no matter how much I would rather play up the virtues.

Not to censor my voice, or pretend to be someone I'm not just because I'll have to look my friends (and mother in law) in the eye after they read what I write.

It's the best decision I have ever made.

(besides, you know, that whole getting married to Kurt thing)

I'm not saying that anonymous blogging isn't amazing, and freeing, and something you should totally do if you can (if I could do it over, I probably would). But I am saying that if you have a public blog, and you can't let go of it, embrace it and be you.

Don't let other people stifle your voice.


Life in the Pitts
Please, leave Helena some comment love here! And then go visit her blog and follow if you don't already! I encourage you to check out one of the posts that I linked to or she linked to. She thinks that if you go to her home page, you will find her looking like the picture below, but we all have our days and I think you'd love her anyway, but those links will show you what you will find on a regular day on her blog.

Too funny! I think I'll still stay anonymous, though!

I agree, though, I have gotten to know one person who does know me in real life so much better through our blogs!

And we live close enough to Shell, that every once in awhile I threaten to throw that girl in the car (she doesn't drive) and take her to come visit Shell... which would make me non-anonymous... and a stalker, so we don't, but I threaten...

Great choice! Heading over to become a follower. =)

I blog publicly and sometimes wish I didn't. My blog link is in the signature of my email thingie, but I sometimes find myself deleting it, depending on who I'm messaging. I think my biggest hurdle is that I belong to a church that turns its nose up at MANY things but I don't wholly follow their doctrine. I'm sure all those little old ladies have prayed for me!

so true - I wonder sometimes what my mil would think of my blog or my sil for that matter.

i don't blog annon. but I don't 'advertize' to any immediate family besides my mom and hubby that I write on my blog.

love the cartoons - I look forward to poking around her blog as well.

i loved this. One of my biggest blogging regrets is not being anonymous, and she helped with that. I'd still like to talk junk about my crazy SIL though....

Blogger The Random Blogette said...

She is hilarious! And I so agree about wishing that my blog was not public! Especially to my family. There are so many things that I want to write about but I know that it wouldn't go over well with some people.

I am now going to have to spend all weekend reading her blog! And yes I think that Shell is absolutely fabulous!

Love this chica! Headed over to say Hey on her blog! I say screw being anonymous its so much funner to let people know you even if it means they think you are completely nuts!
Love the stick figures!!!

I'm writing through the filter of my mom, MIL, husband, and entire church congregation as well. It still works. I hope.

I too often wish that I was anonymous. It would be so much easier. But I have gotten over it and I blog openly and honestly open anything and everything, even sex and my mom reads my stuff. Oh well.

December 3, 2010 at 11:59 AM  
Blogger Helena said...

Oh my gosh, where do I even start? Thanks you guys, I'm glad you like my post. I'm going to visit each and every one of you today, so don't be creeped out. You've been warned.

And Shell, that isn't weird- we would love to make some new IRL friends! But we would have to come up with a convincing cover story, to hide your blog...

I have people on here who know me in RL and I used to care about what they would think, but then I though as long as I'm being real what do I care what they think?

Helped out my opening up in blog land.

This is a really great post- there are quite a few times I've wanted to write about something on my blog and I've held back because I know my family/friends will be reading it. Oh well, next time I can be annonymous!

Blogger The mad woman behind the blog said...

I think I'm in love now! (and singing a really bad rendition of a Tiffany song!)

She's got some balls, I tell ya. I totally went anonymous just SO I could write in my real voice and not the one my in laws know.

Blogger Kim @ seven thirty three said...

No one, not even my hubby knew I was blogging when I started out. I have had a few friends find me via my Facebook page, but still not a ton, and I like it like that! I don't know why.. mine is a craft blog, not like I'm sharing TONS of personal stories...

And I LOVE Helena. I read her blog daily and I ALWAYS laugh. She is a great bloggy friend and I am so happy I found her!

Anonymous MommyNaniBooboo said...

Great post.
So true... there are some great benefits...er... humiliations... I mean, benefits to writing as yourself.
I started annonymously, and then came out of the identity closet a year later.
Best of both worlds... already found my honest voice, and was able to keep it... I think. :)

Blogger Oka said...

I have always blogged privately. Never thought of inviting my family to my blog. I could never imagine my mother or mil reading it. They would turn the most innocent post into a devil's writing.

I commend those who can do it.

Anonymous JD said...

Too funny. I am semi-anonymous. My friends and family know about my blog but I keep my real name and other people's real names out of it. Mostly because my husband thinks I'm so darn cute that if I use my real name I'll have me some stalkers. HA. Flattering, though. He's all cute and paranoid like that.

Going to subscribe to and follow Helena now!

Oh man, I'm going to have to go visit Heather now! That was awesome! There are so many times I wish I blogged anon, and so many times my hubs asks, "Is this going on the blog?"

Blogger Heligirl said...

I was just thinking about this topic this week - what I would have done if I didn't tell my friends and family about my blog. While my full name, kids names, etc. are anonymous to folks I meet through the blog, I sure have the mother in law and other family reading issue too. Oh Shell, she cracked me up fierce and I'm her new follower. Thanks so very much for the intro. And thanks also for having her write this. Kind of the pep talk I needed today. :)

Why have I not met/read this girl before? As soon as I'm done commenting here, I'm off to read more. She sounds amazing.

Those little cartoons are icing on this already funny cake.

December 3, 2010 at 2:45 PM  
Anonymous Ironic Mom said...

This was too fun. Love the cartoons. And the 5-reasons list Another reason I don't blog anonymously is because, one day, I suspect my blog will serve as "evidence" for my twins (and they'll present it to their therapist)...

December 3, 2010 at 2:51 PM  
Anonymous Anne said...

Very funny. And very true. The cartoons are like icing on the cake. I blog publicly and on one of my first posts I got an angry email from my sister asking why I hadn't mentioned her! There are pros and cons to both. I'm off to check out Helena's blog!

the blog about what she thinks when she's with her husband - in solidarity with all men I'm staying far away from that

Yeah, I have the same trouble. I started my own blog as a means of letting my friends and family know what I was doing while I traveled.

Then I came home and it morphed into something else.

Anonymous would've been better.

If I could go back, I'd be completely anonymous, but I do embrace it as it is. I don't hold back, I spill it all and if the people in my real life don't like it.... oh well!!!

I absolutley LOVE this post! There are days I wish I had started anonymously. I also harbor jaelousy towards Shell for this. But, being me in spite of the public creepers, is pretty darn cool too! :) Thanks for this! I always hesitate in telling anyone about my blog to minimize creeping. I always get a little nervous when I pass the link along, and I never advertise on FB or anything b/c I'm sacred to. Some of my posts would be considered boring by creeping haters, but if they catch me on the right day...all *&#@ could break loose. LOL GREAT GREAT blogger!

Okay, so you're like the 3rd person who has mentioned this blogger in a blog post or a tweet so of course I have to go check her out! She sounds hysterical...you know I love humor!

It never even dawned on me to blog anonymously. And it does totally freak me out when people I know IRL say they read my blog. All I can do is think to myself, "Holy crap, I hope I didn't write anything bad about them..." Then I realize "Oh well...not my problem. It's MY blog, after all".
