Quick reading recap: I finished Genesis by Bernard Beckett and Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver last weekend – reviews to come soon – but the rest of my reading week has been awfully slow. And now the Olympics are on and I tend to become obsessed with them and leave everything else behind, which anyone who follows me on twitter has already figured out. But I’m enjoying The Unnamed and hope to at least finish that today.
On to my curiosity. On Friday, I was telling someone at work that I was going to New York in May. She asked why, so I went into the whole book blogging/BEA explanation. Then I realized that I haven’t really discussed the fact that I blog with anyone at work in the past. I’m not sure if this is a conscious decision or it just doesn’t come up.
My question to you: How many of you other bloggers share your blog with the people in your “real” world? Do you tell everyone or keep your blogging identity a secret?
I do share it with a few people. My parents know about it (but I don’t think they read it), some real* people I’m friends with on twitter have obviously figured it out, and I know some of my friends do read it (hi Susan, hi Erin, hi Lisa). I’m not trying to hide anything – a quick google search and a couple clicks could bring you here easily. But I don’t have this site on my facebook page and was recently pondering whether I should or not.
Leave your thoughts in the comments – I’m super curious about this one. And if any of my real life friends and family are reading this, say hi in the comments as well!
*I mean no offense by the term “real”, it is simply an easy way to distinguish people I know online and people I know in person. I realize my online friends are also real people and I know some of you better than I know a lot of the people I interact with in person.
