Another Every Wednesday Post…
One of my fears is being “outed” or having this blog discovered by friends and family. I don’t tell people about this blog; I don’t post real pictures; I don’t ever plan to post pictures of my kids; I schedule posts way ahead of time sometimes, so that the chronology is a bit askew. Only my husband knows and he doesn’t even know how often I update.
I think the reason behind this fear is that I would probably censor myself if friends and family became readers. At the same time, it’s not like I write anything truly controversial. Well, wanting universal healthcare and calling myself a feminist isn’t controversial in my book. And regardless of political, religious or social convictions, in life and on my blog, I’m pretty moderate and open to other viewpoints.
My 2012 resolution is to address my fears…so I’m wondering if it’s time I’m more honest on my blog? I personally find open, honest blogs more interesting to read yet I hold back. How open/honest are you? Do you reveal a lot of personal information?
