This is something I haven’t figured out yet. I have told a few people that I blog and the most common question I get is, “Do you hide your identity?”. I understand why they are asking, they want to make sure I’m safe online. I’m in general a very private person so creating a blog was a big step for me. I haven’t mentioned my age or name specifically, but I’m sure somehow it could be found out! Since my posts can be pretty personal and opinionated I get nervous that if someone doesn’t like something I post they will harass me. I hate having people mad at me.
I know, I’m probably being paranoid. I have posted a few pictures of myself on my blog but have taken strides to make sure that my face isn’t shown. I like how beauty bloggers show their outfits and make up without hesitating too much about showing their face. I wish I was able to do that without getting nervous!
So I’m sitting here reconsidering how private I should be on my blog. I like connecting with my readers, it just feels a bit odd doing it anonymously.
