Okay, now that I know I have some readers and followers, some questions keep coming to mind. My blog, as of right now, is pretty "private." You know that I'm a mother of two kids, a boy and a girl, you know I am married and work full-time (maybe somewhere in there I mentioned my job as well). You know my first name, but you don't know the first names of my husband or my children. You don't know my location... Basically, I'm trying to be "out there" without being "out there."
Do you find yourself drawn to blogs where people are more real? Meaning, you know their name, their location, you see many pictures of them and their surroundings (friends, family, favorite places to go, etc.)? Do you think it's possible for a blogger to be "anonymous" and still be relatable? Or in the anonymity is something lost?
I feel like in my quest to remain anonymous, I am not opening myself up to who I truly am. I'm letting in little peeks and glimpses, but not as much as I could if I were just entirely "out there." At the same time, I'm just not sure how I feel about plastering my children's names and faces, our family triumphs and struggles, etc. out there in cyberspace for all to see.
I'd love any thoughts at all that you might have on this topic... It's one I've thought about a lot lately.
