I keep a couple of blogs, albeit very badly. I’m not the type of person who feels the need to yell about what I’m doing to anyone and everyone. Facebook irritates the crap out of me, because do I really need to know that you’re shopping/having coffee/eating breakfast EVERY SINGLE DAY? It’s useful for keeping in touch with distant family and friends, and I found the MA group that was set up an absolute lifeline at times. But honestly, I don’t really want you to invite me to play Farmville or that cooking one, thanks. I am more than capable of finding plenty of other ways to waste my time.
I like Twitter, for its brevity if nothing else. If it really does go up to 10k characters a tweet, I may just abandon ship there too.
But between this blog, which I created to keep track of my writing and (hopefully) publishing news, and my other one, which appears to be mainly food/crafts, I’ve noticed that there’s not a great deal of me there. Not much about my day to day life or kids or work or family stuff. They’re mentioned, but not every detail. Even on my public forums, it appears that I’m a fairly private kind of soul.
