Why Do You Blog?

I was reading a post in a blog that I was referred to by another blog, and in the comments the subject came up about some blogs being done “anonymously”. Meaning friends and family haven’t been encouraged to read your blog. I was fascinated by this…why did I think that I was so unique in not letting friends and family know about my blog? Perhaps I just hadn’t thought about it.

I started blogging because I have horrible nightmares, most of them I can remember right when I wake up, but eventually fade in memory as the day goes on. Nevertheless, these nightmares are very traumatic during the night, and I thought it might help if I had an outlet. I used to keep a diary, but I type much faster than I print, and I thought it would be interesting to put my nightmares out there in cyber space.

I’m actually glad that I haven’t told anyone about my blog because there is one post that I’m extremely embarassed about. It’s called Pooping in Public. A month or so ago I didn’t recognize the search engine that had referred someone to my blog…so I clicked on the link and I found myself on a website for people who have poop fetishes. I’m sure my blog is not quite what they’re looking for.

I don’t post as often as I would like, but with two jobs (one full-time, one part-time), a fiance, and books, I just don’t have the time to dedicate to it that I would like. But in the meantime, I’ll try not to post about stuff that refers people to my blog who have fetishes.

    Hey Trish, thanks for the shout out. Yes, I’m still an anonymous blogger, pretty much. I finally gave the blog address to the people in my book club, so I’m not totally under the radar anymore, but my family still hasn’t read it.

    I read your poop post, LMAO!! Some of the Google searches of how people found my blog are pretty strange too. I mentioned seeing twin contortionists perform in one of my posts a while back. Almost every day there is someone searching for ‘contortionist’. Like you, I’m quite sure my blog isn’t quite what they were looking for.

    I’m like you, Trish – I’d just as soon my family wasn’t up to what I blog about. Unfortunately, though, my dad is my biggest fan, and he’s been known to print out copies for my other relatives to read. So I can’t post anything interesting about my family saga… or my love life… or anything embarrassing I’ve done…

    On the other hand, my brother disses my blog and doesn’t read it. So which is worse – posting stuff you wouldn’t want your family to read, and having them read it? Or posting stuff and finding they don’t even want to read it?

    I think posting stuff you wouldn’t want your family to read and then having them read it is worse than posting stuff and finding out they don’t even want to read it.

    I know that my fiance isn’t interested in my blog, but I do filter things I write about just on the off chance that he or one of his family members were to stumble upon it. 🙂

    ldetrorce,

    What don’t you agree with? I didn’t think there was anything really to agree or disagree with in this post. It’s just more a matter of why you blog…no right or wrong.

    LOL Trish, that person Idetrorce wrote an identical comment on my blog and it didn’t make sense on mine either. I think it’s spam.
