My thoughts on sharing my life on the internet


good morning part one

As I was preparing posts for this month I had dedicated this week to "wedding week" where I wanted to discuss how I planned my wedding to what I wore and how my ceremony and reception looked. I uploaded key wedding photos and had the posts ready to go but I was hesitant. How much do I really want to share on the internet? My wedding day is one of the most important and special days of my life and putting it up on the internet made me think I am giving strangers a chance to judge my wedding. There are so many lovely, amazing people on the internet but with that there are equally nasty, mean trolls who pick apart everything you put out there. This is a scary place we love so much! We tell kids to be careful but are we, as bloggers, careful enough?

Would I pour my heart out as freely to a stranger on the street than I would over the internet- unlikely not. Yet blogging and sharing my thoughts and aspirations is amazing because it means I am meeting the best people who have all the same interests as me and I don't think I would of been able to do so the real world

I have a self titled blog so you can guess privacy isn't a huge issue with me but I do have my limits and posting about my wedding just was something I couldn't bring myself to do. How much information do you feel comfortable sharing on the internet?

  2. It definitely is your decision to make your personal life available for everyone to see. Some people like the attention though, and I can see that you like to be more low key.

    1. I would like to share certain aspects but there are other things I think are personal. I'm just learning what my limits are :)

  3. I absolutely agree with you, Jacynta, that there are limits. I wonder to myself a lot about how much of myself I want to share and think of it in a similar way: if I wouldn't tell this to someone I know, why would I share it on the Internet? I think it's important to remember where the boundary is and how much is too much. Great thoughts here :)

    1. definitely! its so easy to say and share too much as we sometimes treat our blogs as journals/diaries

  4. Very good topic. There is a very thin line between safe sharing and oversharing :)
