Welcome back to yet another Random Rants and Rambling!
Today, I wanted to talk IDENTITY. In two different aspects.
1.) Do you use a different name/identity online?
(I read a post somewhere about using an alias and I cannot find it to save my life. So please, if you know who wrote it let me know so I can put the link here. Thanks much)
2.) How much of your personal life do you share online/your blog?
If you have read any of my post, especially my wrap ups, you have seen my 10 things. I even wrote a post about how I balance life and all that a few weeks ago. If you think about it, MOST of my Random Rants post are on the more personal side. So, for me, I am an OPEN BOOK. I have my actual picture on my profile(s). I talk about work, the kids, my husband, family and all that online and sometimes, on my blog too. The only small change is my name, but 99% of you have figured that one out!
With my close “online” friends, I share a lot. There are 2 people I talk to the most, on a regular basis, that I feel comfortable talking about the sticky stuff with; not to mention the more CONTROVERSIAL things. I can confide in them about pretty much everything.
Also, I have met bloggers and in turn, they met my family. We are a package deal.
Now the question is, WHY? I don’t have a good answer, except to say that I love talking about my life. My kids, husband and work are, obviously, a huge part of my life. My views, opinions, likes and dislikes are partially because of things that have happened in REAL LIFE (duh). So, how can I explain something without the reason?
That’s probably a lame explanation, but, it is what it is.
The thought to keep my life off my blog never crossed my mind. Do I share EVERYTHING? Well, no. But I share a lot. I am sure as hell going to talk about all the loves in my life.
That’s brings us to discuss –
Do you use a different name online?
What kinds of things do you share online? (Social Media and blog)?
Do you read others personal posts? Why or Why Not?
