I'll Keep You...

Have yall ever come across Post Secret in your blogger-roaming? People mail postcards telling their "Dirty Little Secrets," and the person uploads them to his blog. I find it really interesting to read some of the cards sent in, though some I kinda think are TMI... But that's what makes them a DLS.


Then that got me thinking about a post idea. What are some things about me that most people don't know... Not the DLS kinds of things, just general things. I thought of a few that I could share w/ yall:

1) I LOVE vampire things- books, movies, etc. Anne Rice is awesome. I don't tell a lot of people, cuz I'm afraid they'd judge me.

2) I used to watch "7th Heaven." Not a single person on that show can act, yet for some reason, I was addicted to it!

3) I once was fired at a job, but I cried so much they felt bad, and changed their minds! How embarassing!

4) I tell everyone that I'm fine w/ the whole being single thing... But really, I'm quite depressed. I'm worried that I'll never meet a guy, fall in love and get married, and people will always look at me and wonder what's wrong w/ me that I couldn't get a guy. (Anyone know any nice single guys in the 25-35 age bracket?)

5) I can be a very spiteful person. I try to supress it around people I know. But when I'm driving, I can be quite a jerk!
.
6) Most people in my life don't know about this blog. I take it as my chance to be a bit immature at times, complain about some things personal or work related, and be completely free to open up w/out worrying about judgement. If fellow bloggers want to judge me, well, ok then. So we won't visit each other's blogs. But if it's someone in my life, I have to face them everyday. Not good.
.
So, now's the question for you. Look at #6. Are you the same way? Is your blog hidden from the people you know, or does everyone in your family and office know about it? Why?

I'm SO with you on #4.

People close to me, best friends, mom, sisters all know about my blog. there are ways for others to stumble on to it... but sometimes they don't do enough clicking around to find it! :-D

My immediate family and some other relatives don't know about my blog. But my friends do and a few of my cousins that I'm close to do. Sometimes I wish it were a bit more anonymous...but overall I don't mind. I like being able to share things and its nice when I know the people I'm sharing with.

I love Post Secret. I read it weekly! :) Usually it's my Monday morning read.

I told everyone about my blog...even my boss. He's cool though and give me a hard time about it at work. In a staff meeting once he actually made a joke and then suggested I should blog about it. That's when I realized I had entered the dark side ;-)

Well, ABs, as you know, my blogis open and unsecretive. For that reason, because I don't want oupset my parents, it has to be family friendly. But I don't have any secrets anyway, a rather quiet and ordinry life.

My kids know about my blog and visit. My mom knows about it but isn't interested. lol

Giggling at #3.

My family and close friends know, and strangers who find me, but I don't share it with workmates or those I think might judge me.

Most people in my life know about my blog...now sometimes I wish they didn't....and sometimes when I post things I forget who could be reading it....ah well...such is life....

I love Post Secret...I read it before work on Sunday. By that time I need a little pick me up.

As for my blog, I've mentioned it to a few people (my brother, cousin and one of my friends) but none of them really paid much attention...which is just as well I guess. Any other people besides that I wouldn't want reading it anyway.

I like the whole Vampire theme too! I used to be obsessed with Buffy (and in love with Angel).. the show was so beautifully made :) Did you know the next season is continuing in the form of a comic book?

My family knows I have a blog, but only my sister has actually read it. She's never commented though because I told her not to - though if she did now I wouldn't mind. The only thing I don't want is for my students to discover it so I'm trying to make it more anonymous (I tried checking out Wordpress because of the password protection option but it looked to complicated).

P.S I used to watch 7th Heaven too but then lost track when I didn't have time. The last time I watched it was weird cause everyone was all grown up and Lucy had a baby! -- I couldn't deal with that so I never watched afterwards lol.

Good question. I've not told anyone of my blog. I hinted to Louie because he's a bit dense but hell, we're working laundry all day - why not. One of these days though, I'm gonna let all my cell mates know.

Becky L said...

well abby, i knew all that stuff. though i think we know everything about eachother that is possible to know.

anyway, yeah my blog is known to others. i've had to catch myself from time to time though. sometimes i want to grumble about Hubby but realize "oh his family reads this!"

I feel very happy to share my blog with my friends and others. I have joined a dating site yesterday. I'm planning to post a blog on this site. I will let you know after finishing.
