I’ve been sitting here for the last hour with this tab open and the cursor blinking on the screen at me.
There’s so much that I could be blogging about, but I don’t for fear of someone in my real life finding my blog, knowing exactly who I am, and using stuff I write against me.
Basically, I live in a very (very) small city, and news travels fast. If one person from my work, or a workplace associated with my work in some way, read my blog and found out the “juicy goss” about me, you can guarantee that it’d get back to my workmates and, in turn, my boss.
Which is super unfair, because even though I post this publicly, I should be able to express my opinions and feelings freely within the confines of this site, and without fear of being ridiculed, ‘outed’ or that information shared by a third-party. The fact that rumours and news travels so fast makes it near impossible to be honest and open about my life beyond the apparent day-to-day stuff. Anything that I want to be kept from “those people” needs to be password-protected, which then makes it completely useless for those who I don’t mind reading that sort of thing.
I guess being *too* public with my life, who I am, was a bad choice. I don’t regret it, but I guess I could have done things a little better.
Hopefully in the coming weeks I can be a little more open without fear of people reading my blog just for the sake of getting some information about me and my life.Read More
