"Yes. I know I've been rather scan-happy lately. I'd apologize, except that it's actually been refreshing and more than a little necessary to take the occasional break from the Truman-Show-ness of all-super-personal-blogging, all-the-damn-time." from here.Obviously, I don't have 10% of the readership Amy does, but I think a lot of us who blog likely get caught up in this dilemma. When is too much information too much? Personally, I don't like the idea of blogging for the sake of blogging. I don't have that interesting of a life, and I'm very okay with that. When something comes up that I feel like I can share, I totally will. But mostly, we're just this ordinary family who has the same day nearly every day.
I have crossed my personal line a time or two. For example, I've revealed too much about my feelings toward several of my family members. The things I've said are not things I would not say to them in person, however, I feel bad I would write things about them in public. I wouldn't do that to people I didn't know. (ASIDE --- I'm just not one of those people who gets into celebrity gossip and all that. I can't help but remember that they're real people. /ASIDE)
So, questions to all of you: Do you feel the pressure of "having to write something?" Have you crossed the line with what you've revealed on your blog? How do you keep yourself in check?
