I was wondering if I should write a take about my life. About my family and about my upbringing. I don't think a lot of users know much about me and I thought I could give them a peak into what it was like being me as a child.
It would be kind of long, there's a lot to explain and I'd have to go into my mother's history. What do you guys think? Yay or Nay?

I can only encourage you to write it. But do not write it with this website in mind. Write it as a story that you would like your children would read. Write it as a story that you would like to read, in let's say.. 20 years from now. Write the details that you think you might forget in that timespan.
Write it in a way that you could repost it in another site if you ever wanted to, or to send it to someone online that you meet and asks you about your childhood.
Make a memory of it. I do that with the important things in my life (not many so far), and it's always a pleasure to read them back, because I can always see details that I had forgotten already.
Since you are doing this effort, make sure to make it pleasant to read, with nice wording and descriptions. Throw in some emotions as well, how you felt, what you thought, etc.
Last but not least, don't forget to tag all the people that encouraged you to do it in this question. :P1
