I recently watched an episode of House M.D. (I have finished all 8 seasons now) where a woman put every aspect of her life online in a blog. She even went so far as to seek important, life altering medical advise from her blog followers. Needless to say, this cause a short lived rift between her and her husband.
My point to this post is … how much of your life do you put out there for everyone to read? Do you, like the fictional woman in the episode, put everything out there or do you pick and choose what you want to share with the world at large?
As for myself, well, I pick and choose. There are things about me and my life that I don’t want anyone to know about, things that are way to personal to share. On the other hand, there are times that I just wanna put it out there for support or much needed help. I have also been known to want to post on a subject just for sympathy, but I always change my mind and never hit the Publish button.
There are certain things about my life that I am more than willin’ to share with you, my readers and any potential readers. Things about my childhood, my many adventures with my mom and son(s), silly anecdotes, things I believe in, etc.
I’m not sayin’ anything against folks that do share everything about their personal lives, and in fact some of it makes for very interestin’ readin’, it’s just not for me.
So, how much do you put out there and more interestingly, if you put it all out there, why?
Thanks for readin’.
