Don’t get me wrong, I’m not about to turn this into a nudist blog. I’m only wondering how much of me you want to know. To keep you coming here, do I have to tell you about my husband’s profession, our relationship or about the people I live with, about my friends and their children, my issues with the people I don’t like, what I did on Sunday, post pictures of my new acquisitions…?
I do not want to disclose the particulars of my life here, yet share nuggets of it with you. Does that make this blog less interesting? I’m asking because I realise the more popular blogs in cyberspace are ones that detail the most intimate secrets of the blogger, keeping only the name a secret. I’m not judging them; on the contrary I respect their ability to come clean on so many things that I still keep under wraps.
I wonder, what part of us wants to know how a stranger leads her life. And I keep debating with myself how much of my private life I want to make public. Do I want the world to know about a tiff with my pa-in-law, about why I don’t want children yet or about how much I miss a man who doesn’t remember me at all?
I’m confused. What do you think?
