Do you blog? If so, do you tell people you know in real life about your blog?
I have a confession: I am thoroughly embarrassed by this blog. I call it my silly vain little hobby. I hid it from most of my real life friends for a while (still do, to an extent) and am almost always a little horrified when it comes up in conversation with non bloggers (they just don't get it, you know?). I am definitely not one of those people who shares their blog posts on Facebook. In fact, I haven't even liked my own Facebook page because then people I know might see it.
At church a few weeks ago a friend of mine introduced me to a woman who had just moved into our ward as, "This is Kayla. She has a fashion blog." And I died a little inside.
We had dinner at my in-laws last week and I arrived late, after my husband had apparently already told some visitors about my blog. I took a seat and my blog came up and I tried to start talking about our family blog and they were like, "um, no, the other one." I spluttered an explanation and I could feel my face getting hotter and hotter..."Um...you're turning kind of red." Yes, well. That happens.
When people find out I blog I kind of wonder if they start to see me as one of those people who lives in their parents' basement and plays a lot of Dungeons and Dragons. Is blogging mainstream enough now that I don't have to be embarrassed anymore? Cool people blog too, right?
How do you handle the blog/real life divide?
