Fandango has come up with another of his provocative questions.
Here is what he is asking ;
“Is there a ‘blogging-you’ who is different from the real-world you? If so, how are the two ‘yous’ different? How has the ‘blogging-you’ evolved since you first started blogging?”
The blogging-me isn’t all that different from the real me. There are slight subtle differences which I will elaborate.
When blogging, I prefer to remain anonymous. I do not share any particular details about myself, my family or even from where I come from. The reason: When I started to blog, I did some reading up and one of the advice lot of bloggers gave, was to keep your own identity separate from your blogging identity.
I am more open about my opinions and tolerant of things which in real life I may not be that comfortable discussing. I think that is also due to anonymity. I can discuss subjects which due to my dislike of confrontation, I won’t do otherwise.
I write on subjects which can be considered as not socially appropriate, if talked about in an otherwise different setting. Or I could put it like this that socially awkward subjects can be discussed openly on the blog because there is a freedom of expression.
The real world me, would not be doing some of the above mentioned things due to no cover of anonymity.
How my blogging has evolved;
Since it’s been a short time since I started to blog, I don’t think that a very marked change has occurred in my blogging personality. I may have become more confident in my writing. I have made a lot of lovely friends here in the blogging world. The encouragement I have received here has made me bold enough to address a few of the tricky issues in the blogging world.
If you guys have sensed any other changes in my writing, feel free to comment.
I am writing to express my opinion, share my experiences and to maybe provide some insight. My blog is addressing women at 50 ( but men are welcome to read my posts) ,their issues and the questions that come up at this stage in life. I don’t aim to teach, but to learn together.
