#NaBloPoMo March 2014 Prompt for Wednesday, March 12, 2014
Do you feel like you reveal too much of yourself on your blog?
Do you think you hold back too much?
I feel like I used to reveal too much of myself on my blog, but I think I have gotten a little better about that. One thing I am trying to refrain from sharing too much of is negativity. I previously would write about any time a big name company ticked me off or bad experiences I was going through. I'm trying to not do that so much, or at least when I do write something negative I'm trying to get better about not putting the guilty parties on blast. I wouldn't want someone to do that to me so I shouldn't do it to others.
The only exception to my attempt at removing negativity from my writing is when I'm writing an honest review of a product or meal because not mentioning the restaurant or product would defeat the purpose of writing the review at all. If the meal sucked or I wouldn't recommend the product- I'm going to say so!
I also am trying to not share too many details about my family. I've heard horror stories of bloggers whose families have forsaken them or have been verbally attacked because of things they have written on their site. Nowadays, I try not to mention names unless they want them mentioned or give any details that tell who they are unless they are okay with that too...
