Sunday Confessions: Bloggers Dilema

I had originally had this uber witty, fun filled post planned for today.

But then life happened as it tends to do.

I think all bloggers will tell you there is a precarious balance between being open and honest on your blog and being too open and honest on your blog.

Today, that is my struggle. How much do I divulge without making myself sound like I'm out seeking sympathy, my family being annoyed with me (although there always seems to be a slight bit of "annoying" when it comes to how my family has viewed me in the past so I guess that doesn't really matter) and still keeping some sense of honesty about this place. And keeping that sense of honesty not just for my readers, but for myself as well.

So today I pose the question to you. How you do decide how "personal" to get on your blog?

  1. This is something I find I'm in constant struggle with. Whenever I end up sharing too much of my personal life online, I usually end up regretting it… but I feel like I'm being dishonest and avoid writing entirely if something big is brewing in my personal life and I don't at least mention it.

  2. It's an interesting conundrum. For my friends and family, I give them the option of a name-change and if they want to pick it, they can, or I will. Sometimes I'll use nicknames or just refer to "my cousin" or whatever. As for my own info., my heart, what's going on....that's another story. I find myself basically wondering "Is this something I would talk about at dinner with a group of friends?" ---Which is actually A LOT. There's very little I wouldn't talk about with my friends. But there are things.


Thanks for reading!
