Identity crisis

When I started this blog, I was too impatient to wait for readers to find me and too eager for feedback to keep total anonymity. Most of the time I enjoy knowing that one of my roommates, my best friend and my sister are all loyal readers. My blog is also a great way to keep in touch with far-flung friends.

I should know better, but I misled myself to believe that I was in control of who was reading my blog. On Friday night, my mother referred to my ongoing bra shopping adventures as chronicled here. I thought I had taken care to keep my blog's existence from her but apparently she has known about Angineer for a while now. Then on Sunday, I was reading up on my cousin's latest adventures abroad and realized that if I left a comment I would be leaving a link for her parents and sister to follow back here.

I know I'm not the only blogger who has undergone a crisis regarding their blog. Despite my new insecurity, I still enjoy posting for my friends, both those from real life and those I've met through this blog. Thanks to those friends for making my first year as a blogger memorable.

I don't think my parents know about my blog, but I wouldn't swear to that. I write as if they do not see it, but keep the style such that no major embarassments would arise should they find it.

You could always comment anonymously on your cousin's journal.

My dad knows about my blog, and two other people in my real life, but I'm very careful about giving out too many hints.

I started my blog to keep in touch with my boyfriend (at the time) while he was in hawaii and I in Colorado. The fact that most of my friends read my blog isn't a problem most of the time, but sometimes I wish I were anonymous because it bitching about my friends online doesn't working any better than bitching to my friends about them.
