Do You Want To Know A Secret

"People kept asking if I was in therapy. I'd say, 'No, but I have a blog.'"

Male bloggers tend to write about politics, technology and money. Women are more likely to blog about their private lives using an intimate style of writing.

If you told the truth and nothing but, who'd run for the fucking hills?

I don't put my private life in public under any name that can be traced to me. I don't want to embarrass my kids or lose my job, and I really do wonder about some of these moms who disclose so much about family life -- I think it's an invasion of your kids' privacy. My blog's mostly for goofery purposes, and to interact with likeminded peeps. I have written about private things anon in public, but interacting with other anonymous strangers just didn't do much for me. Yeah, everyone's "anon" until you get to know them, but bleh I couldn't be bothered. My private blog re my mom's ordeal helped me though, but that was pretty focused on one thing. The rest of my life can stay inside my head where it belongs.

goofery ;)

I'll always credit the Miz for that and "kerfluffle", another Top Four Fave.

Bugger, i need to have my testosterone levels checked because politics and money are all i seem to bang on about on my blog lately.

You're right, I put very little of my private life on the blog. That's accurate, though, because it takes a lot of time and effort to get to that stuff when you know me in person, too.

Lucy...I smell ya sister. I don't want folks thinking I just blog about men and music and guitar players and getting laid and not getting laid and...ohh (to borrow your term), bugger.

So Joe, you're tough nut to crack? I feel it. There's a good of me I leave out of here. But it's coming. Time to get really naked. Nothing to lose.

hmmm...guess blogging is a spectator sport, eh baby? Bit of a peep show, really.
