30 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 30

One question or subject matter if I were asked here on 30 Days of Blogging Honesty I know I would refuse to answer or definitely lie about is…

Unfortunately nothing. I feel confident that I can share anything without fear of embarrassment or shame. I am a very open person and I don’t mind writing about myself. Talking about myself is a different story but I can write with little or no problem. There is no topic off limits. I’ve already written about being an nudist, teen sexcapades, and I have an Ask page set up for all the questions I’m tired of answering in emails. On that page though I do admit I might not tell the truth. During these honesty months, you can trust that I am!

With this being the last question of the month, I can say in all honesty that one of the reasons I like the meme questions and next year’s honesty questions to be contributed by participants is when forced to come up with questions by myself my mind has a tendency to resort to questions of a sensual or sexual nature when I run out of questions to ask.

To avoid creating questions others may be too uncomfortable answering, I ask for your help. Not everyone has the advantage or inclination to be honest in every aspect of their lives. Also keeping sexually natured questions to a minimum allows more people to feel comfortable taking part in the month long event and the memes. Also it helps that people don’t feel the necessity to distance themselves from me because they think I’m too weird or perhaps a pervert.

No subject is off limits while creating questions for the honesty months. That is the reason for an alternate question. If a question makes you uncomfortable you can always select the alternate. If more than one is uncomfortable, you can always pass on the challenge. Next year you will want to consider the alternate question carefully because question 28 could make your head spin if you choose the alternate too early on in the month! Ha ha ha!

This is last call for questions for the February 2013 honesty month. I would like to finish that post and schedule it for sometime in December. There are still eighteen open slots for questions.

It was a great month however yet still it is nice that it has come to an end. Looking forward to the dares. Did anyone know that April 30th was National Honesty Day? I just found out today. There are two new people who have expressed an interest in doing the month of honesty. One has already began, Weatheredeye and Serendipity has shown interest. I’m not sure if Serendipity will use here WordPress blog or her Tumblr to do the challenge. Another blogger, Amber, somehow came across last years questions and has started posting those answers. If you have time, please visit their sites and give them support by commenting.

Well, tomorrow is the day. The first Saturday of every month I have a wonderful and gifted guest blogger. This month is no different. My friend Prinsesa has created a guest post about the Holy Week in her country of the Philippines. It is very interesting and I would hope that some if not all of you would stop in and support her. Stop by her blog and partake of a few of her posts if you have never looked at Prinsesa’s Anatomy.

    I agree that less sexual questions is a good idea – having too many sexually themed questions can exclude people and limit the number of participants.

    I still gotta work on my dare…blerg.

    Was wondering how your hand was. Hope it’s better. Liked today’s post.

      Thank you for caring Susannah. My hand hurts about the same even though I am not using it as much. It took a long time of overuse to get like this so I guess it might take awhile to heal. How have you been?

        I’m okay. Trying to get a dog a home. Blogged her as a personal ad. Hope someone bites, no pun intended.

    Here is day 1-2 for you, as I emailed you. I am so sorry I was behind, trying to catch up. Working 14 hrs a day keeps me busy.

      You are not being rushed in any way!

    For me (not that I took part other than commenting on yours, but if I did take part myself), I would be uncomfortable about anything too sexual, simply because it would embarrass my children if one of their school friends saw it, which would be highly likely if it was on my blog, because a few of them have visited my blog. My children are aged 13 and 10, so they’re at that age where it seems everything I do embarrasses them as it is!

      Vanessa, commenting is always welcomed! I do understand your points and I agree with them. Sometime just showing your face to kids embarrasses them.

    Aw yayy, Prinsesa! I agree, less sexual questions is a good thing. For me, those kinds of questions lead to more erotic conversation, and that then feels too private to put on a blog.

    • #15 by Tom Baker on May 9, 2012 - 9:44 AM

      I agree about sexual questions but totally ignoring the subject is also defeating the purpose of an entire month of honesty. The questions should run through every topic possible. Anyone not wanting to answer a question about sex is free to choose the alternative question.

      • #16 by prysmatique on May 9, 2012 - 2:28 PM

        We had some questions about sex, so that’s not a problem. I just wouldn’t want a question to be like “Describe in detail the last time you had sex” you know? Or having like 13 out of 30 questions about sex. Then it’s like you might as well be playing a public erotic game :P But neither of those two happened, so I’m glad.
