I am thinking about going private. I am not a private person. In fact, I often share way too much about myself, which can get me into trouble and is probably the reason I may decide to take the plunge into a private blog.
A few thoughts on why:
My blog is mostly for myself as a way to keep up with family and friends. However, I realize that it may not be friends or family who are reading my blog.
- Even if you are a stranger and get some enjoyment, if you have friendly feelings towards me I am happy to oblige your readings. But, I realize there is a possibility of having a few creepsters out there.
- I also know there are some people who may be reading my blog to find information to ridicule or judge me. I don’t really appreciate this motive for reading.
- Probably the most important reason is to avoid misunderstandings from patients. I know there is a high chance patients may be searching for me online and my personal thoughts and pictures may not be the best medium for them to experience who I am.
- I also want to have the freedom to post topless photos of my husband, which of course should only be shared with the closest of friends. Or at least pictures of my house without worrying about stalkers. Or pictures of family without compromising their identities.
If I go private, will anyone still read?
I feel very hesitant but it seems like the smartest way to go.
