When nobody knows who is blogging
I don’t know about you, but I do not blog for the people I know. That’s why sometimes I wish my blog was anonymous.
I guess it depends the reasons that drives you to blog. This is mine.
I realized it was a mistake to start linking my post to Facebook because if I think about it, there is no other connection between me and my blog.
I don’t really talk about it, so people around me don’t necessarily know I have a blog.
This is because I honestly prefer getting feedback from people I don’t know, because I’m sure they will be honest and critical. (I just celebrated my 1000 comment! Thanks everybody!)
However, the fact that it’s clear who the blog’s author is, doesn’t give me all the freedom that I wish I had.
Life sometimes goes past imagination. I know for a fact that, if I were able to write everything I want, without repercussion, not only would I have much more readers/comments/tweets/happiness/shares/likes/emails, but I could actually write with no restriction about myself, the world around me, and simply life!
Am I a bad person if I wish to write the truth? If something happens why can’t I write about it? If my boss’s affair with the new intern or that loser who trys exclusively to pick up underaged girls (these are just examples) has some kind of impact on my life, why can’t I write about it? With respect I mean, without saying who they are, but just telling stories about life.
Does this make me a bad person?
Why could writing a story – with no names, just a story – become a good chance to get fired, or fight with family members?
I’m not the one who does those things! I’m not the one who has a bad conscience! I just want to be free to take one’s cue from life around me.
If you read a story about somebody cheating on his wife, you do not think: “OMG! This is my sister writing about our friend”! You just read it and maybe see some of your own experiences in it.
I just wish my blog was anonymous, to talk about me and the world around me, to say things that everybody knows and everybody talks about…. behind everybody’s back!
That would be fun! Am I horrible?
