I ignored my blog for a year. Then I came back and hit the “sharing with Facebook” button.
I quickly un-shared as soon as I saw the WordPress postings on my FB page.
I’m just not sure I want all the people in my life knowing and finding my blog. It’s mostly my rambling anyway, so most of them hear it on a daily basis.
Then again…no they don’t. And that’s my problem.
My blog was going to be this safe space that I could post what ever I wanted; and do so fairly anonymously.
Then my Mom found it.
Now don’t get all bent out of shape. I LOVE my Mom, and I have always shared my writing with her. But first it’s my Mom, then my co-worker…it just feels all of sudden too exposed. This is my comfy chair and i don’t need people in my day-to-day knowing about all the stuffing that goes inside.
It’s different with other bloggers. You all know what i mean. It’s easier to expose yourself when you don’t have to actually talk to the person the next day. No one can ask you “what made you write that?” unless it’s in the comment field and you choose to respond. Maybe I’m a control freak. Who isn’t? Ever had a flat tire that you were totally ok with?
And then I realized…who cares?
This was always for me. If I expose a few extra truths about myself along the way then what’s the harm? Shouldn’t the people in my day-to-day get to know the real me? I’m fantastic! It’s time I’m not the only who knows it.
Once I publish this post – I’m heading directly to the “Sharing” portion of my Dashboard.
Bring on Facebook, Bring on Twitter…that’s all I’m savvy for at the moment, but just you wait and see…
