Do the people in your life know you’re a blogger?
When I first started this blog, I didn’t tell anyone! A few weeks later, I let some family and friends in on the secret. Now, my whole extended family knows about my blog and some of them read along. I don’t worry about that, since they all know me well anyway.
My colleages and students don’t know about my blog, since I try to keep work and this little hobby of mine separate. A few close friends at work know, but I don’t believe any of them follow along here.
Recently, since I joined Facebook, I realized that lots of people I know have discovered my blog, and it’s been mostly positive. But still, it feels kind of strange. I don’t know why I worry about being “found out” as a blogger. The truth is, I’m pretty proud of the way the blog has evolved over time. But when people tell me they enjoy my blog, I get embarrassed.
Does anybody else feel this way?
