I often wonder how other bloggers walk the fine line between expressing themselves and the things that go on in their worlds and over-sharing, potentially revealing information that really shouldn’t be imparted to the broad masses?
I think as a new blogger, and one that still has a small audience, it could be easy to forget that people you know might actually be reading and cotton onto the information that you might be divulging.
Except that I don’t ever forget.
I’m always conscious of my audience and whilst I’m prepared to share differing points of view, a perspective that might not be the norm, or an insight into the whirring that goes on in my mind, I am always conscious of who I involve in my blogging life and what I share to the world.
This is why many of my posts of late have been a little ambiguous, often talking riddles and alluding to things that I can’t articulate or explain. We all have ups and downs, particularly with workplaces or people in our lives and whilst I try to explore my thoughts thoroughly here, there is a line that I try not to cross when it comes to airing dirty laundry or casting dispersions about certain people, places or things.
So with that said, I’m going to leave you with another one of my ambiguous musings and let you know that tonight is a night of preparation as tomorrow is the day of reckoning. My preparations will assist me in putting my best foot forward and from there, as I explained to a friend this afternoon (as in, had to literally explain!), it’s a simple matter of this:
And no, I couldn’t believe that she’d never known what this saying (song lyric) meant before either, bless her cotton socks!
So, wish me luck!
If you’re a blogger, how do you tread the fine line between offering something authentic but limiting the amount of oversharing? Are you at a crossroads in your life where the day of reckoning has come upon you?
