Over my winter break I thought I would come to some sort of balanced feeling about this. I am shy and my blog helps me say things about myself that otherwise I wouldn’t say. But what about over sharing? Like with my journal articles and talking about how much they mean to me? and this one on part two: Here.
Or my spiritual path here: . There’s a bit of over sharing in that, I would say. And then the whining one where I actually whine: here. But it’s really about writing memoir and the support I get. I love and need that. But,,,
Is that not over sharing?
I often feel rather self conscientious about blogging. But what kind of blog would I have if I did not reveal my thoughts about myself? Christie feels the same way.
My response to her was this:
In my blogging, I too, find myself with the dilemma of writing too much about myself or not enough to keep the conversation going. But if it were not for comments I would not do it. I find so much support in the kid lit and my blogging community that I am thoroughly enchanted by it and also captured. I am a prisoner of my blog. I am captured by my readers and I love it.
Thanks, readers, for taking me prisoner.
What about you? Do you feel self conscientious in your blogging? Do you find yourself in a dilemma of saying too much about yourself? Tell me in the comments, OK?
