A recent decision made by a friend blogger to have a private blog/journal made me rethink again on blogging and how it started with me.
I was blogging anonymously for few years. I wasn’t confident enough to blog with my real name. I felt that I might write things which are too personal and regret it later.
I have always been a person who doesn’t like sharing much of her life even if it isn’t a big deal or crucial. At the same time I’ve always wanted to write on what I want including what bothers me and touch my feelings and/or what interests me . Writing with my own name seemed much revealing at times. I believed social media world is too small that I can bump into anyone who would recognise me and read between lines or just be judgmental..
Needless to say,, same worries crossed my mind when I wanted to get back to the blog world with my own name. It can be considered a very trivial subject but not for me, coming from my culture,, from a society that can be too judgmental about anything and everything.
I decided finally that I’ve the right to write with my own name,, and I have the right to express myself and enjoy the blogosphere world. I am still careful with what I write and with providing too much information.
Does it make any differences for you to write anonymously or not?
