“YOU WHAT? You want to know my blog URL? Why???”
I know, as a blogger I should be pleased when people read my blog. And yes, I am – hello and welcome, I’m so glad you’re here. But then someone I KNOW reads my blog, and I’m like all:
You know what’s even worse. When your blog mentions them! Or their girlfriend/boyfriend/mother/father/cat. Oh yes. Not by name, but clear as day. You know what? They might be reading this now…it could be you?? But then you’d know if it was wouldn’t you?
Then in my head I’m manically trying to think what I wrote? Were there other posts?
I’m not saying I’ve written anything personal. At least I don’t think I have. It’s more in passing – such as my paying it forward posts (I still try to do nice things, I just don’t want to make a thing of it). At least I hope that’s all it is 🙂
I guess I’m not like Jenn (Jenn is awsome by the way – check her out) who sees her blog as “a perfect outlet to get personal from time to time.”
And I identify with Lucie: I don’t talk about this on my blog.
I don’t share my What I ate Wednesday posts on Facebook, at least not on my personal page. Any other bloggers out there with me? It’s fine amongst the WIAW blogger crowd, but when people I know talk to me about it, it’s like when someone reads your diary. And no, I wouldn’t want you to read my diary either! The only thing really in it is my exercise diary – can anyone say a.d.d.i.c.t???
I’m not comfortable with being held up as an example. I’m not perfect, and I get things wrong. Of course, we try to show our best sides in a blog – but you know what? I get things wrong. I have a story, I have a history… stick around if you want to know more about me – but know that I am flawed, JUST LIKE YOU!
Do people you know read your blog?
Do you draw attention to it, or away from it.
Is your blog a place for you to show the best side of you, or do you keep it real?
