Blogging and Real Life Friends.

Question: Do your real life friends know you are a blogger?

I have yet to tell any of my real life friends that I blog, except for one in real life friend that I know has a blog. I have found other real life acquaintances or friends from an earlier season or friends of friends that I know of, that have blogs, but I'm a total creeper when it comes to reading their blogs... because I haven't introduced myself.  

Part of me desires to remain anonymous. But its one of those things, where I catch myself almost saying things about my blog to real life friends... or more often I catch myself almost mentioning reading someone's blog  to someone who does not read blogs, and therefore, I would have to explain to them the whole situation.

Quite the predicament if you ask me... because I feel like I am keeping things hidden and like I have this whole area of life that I am suppressing, which might also explain some of my non-blogging and lack of interesting things to say.

So... should I tell a few friends about my blog? Also, I wonder if some of those people I know or know of, have found me and are keeping quiet too, because they don't know I have found them... Interesting huh? 

Just something I'm thinking about.

I'm here. And I'm still writing...

I have told very few of my friends that I blog. Not sure why, just haven't. I think I might telling some, not everyone though. :)

I've told alot of my friends that I blog, but not very many of them read my blog. A couple do, and it usually makes my day when they comment. But I know how you feel about maybe not wanting to tell them - you're right, it is quite a predicament!

Hmmm, that's hard. I told all of my friends about my blog, and they all read it. That sounds wonderful, but when we get together, and I start telling a story, they all go "yeah, we already read that on your blog." So, I'm pretty much out of stories then, and just have to sit back. Kinda sad.

I sometimes wish that I hadn't told anyone about my blog. It was meant to be an outlet for my thoughts/feelings, but most times I censor myself due to those who read my blog. I shouldn't care, but I do. It would be nice to just have a journal to vent your thoughts and feelings and not be concerned with judgement.

I tell everyone about my blog because I stink at emailing and I tell people to read the blog if they want to keep on top of my life. i don't care if I offend people... for the most part. eeep.

All of my friends know about my blog ... my blog is more of a journal about our daughter. It has been an easy way for family and friends to stay updated on us, but also a great way to meet new blogging friends! :)
