starting over

September 28th, 2008 at 03:03 am

Hello everyone (again).

I am not a 'new' blogger, as such.

My former savings advice blog/username was 'Greengirl'.

I have had to start my blog again afresh as I suspected that someone on the 'real' world had been reading it.
While I don't care greatly if my boyfriend reads my blog (he isn't that interested really), it does bother me a little if friends, other family or coworkers read it. This is for two reasons:
Firstly, money is a personal thing. While I don't think it should be a taboo subject at all, I would feel a little weird if my friends knew how much I analyse my spending, and if they knew the exact amount I make.
The second reason is my main reason for starting anew: I use this blog, sometimes, to vent about the situations, events and people in my life, good or bad. I am normally upfront with people, but sometimes I feel it is better to let some things be. How would I explain it better? I guess: picking your battles wisely. So when I don't raise a small issue in real life, I am most likely to bring it here and vent a little.

I will be adjusting my sidebars soon with the usual savings goals etc - but to minimise the possibility of having my new blog discovered, there will be a distinct lack of identifying factors. But you all know me anyway Smile

    Soooo, I assume this new blog is enough to throw these people off your track?

    People in real life know about my blog too. I've thought it over, and decided to keep it as it is. I figure if they're really that interested in my side of the story, then by all means, feel free to take a look.

    However, it has made things a lot more... how do I put this... restrictive, because I am writing with the knowledge that certain information could be used against me if I am not careful.

    Still, I've got nothing to hide. I just don't want people to use anything against me. And so, I've decided not to go on as usual. But that's just me. I'm not saying you have to do that or anything.

    Anyway, just rambling. Good luck!

    ba: yes i think a change of blog name will be enough to deter them. and i feel the same way - about being restricted in what you write when you know someone in real life might be reading it.

    welcome back in your new version. I too walk the line when wondering how much I reveal is too revealing.
