I wrote a post today. It bares my soul. But it feels too raw to publish. I’m leaving it marked as private. I need to live with it for a while before I can feel comfortable enough to publish it. I may never publish it. I haven’t decided yet.

When I started blogging years ago (it’s my 8 year blogaversary by the way, yay me!) it was with the knowledge that I’d be baring my soul to strangers. Inviting them into my life. And I’ve never had a problem with that. But these days I seem to be creeping closer and closer to a point where my real life and my anonymous blogging life could possibly collide, and I’m not sure how much of my life I want to be out there.

Is it weird that I’m more than comfortable blogging about ttc and my girly bits than I am about money? I live tweeted the birth of my second child for pete’s sake! How could a little thing like money be too embarrassing to blog about? I don’t know the answer to that. I just know what i feel.

  1. Everyone has their own comfort zone as far as what they feel like talking about. I feel comfortable sharing things with my regular readers, but not just everyone. I do keep some things to myself though. Just because.

  2. Money is the last taboo, pretty much, so you’re not alone in that feeling. I’d rather discuss my childbirth experience than the contents of my bank account, too!

    We all have our secret subjects, things that we don’t have enough distance to write about yet. But the beauty is we don’t have to if we don’t want to!

    1. This is exactly how I feel. Yet at the same time I want to put it out there because doing that makes me want to make changes. It’s all so complicated!
