Morning after

Do you ever, I wonder, write a post and afterwards worry about what someone will think if they happen to visit your blog for the first time on that day?

Oh. Just me then.

    me i’ve done that. i know someone who i sometimes have a rant about and she’d be genuinely hurt if she checked back in my past blogs, it’s true what i wrote but not nice to read about yourself, i hope she never does. it’s one of the things that sometimes gets me to almost close down..

    Seems to be a girl thing then.

    I decided to speak as I thought, and be more open than I would be when speaking to someone, though in other respects try to use my speaking voice rather than my writing style. I also write spontaneously and don’t do drafts, or only rarely if I don’t have time to finish a post.

    I am fairly circumspect about what I say about people I know, because I don’t know who among local people read this and I’ve given enough away to be found easily.

    I like it that I’ve found that people like me when I am open with them, after a lifetime of caution. So I continue to take the risk – but a newcomer might not take it in the same way as a blogfriend.

    It was the previous post, Dand, when I told you about my septuagenarian admirers. During the day, I left a few comments on sites where I haven’t commented either for a long time or at all and thought ‘if they visit, what on earth will they think?’. Not that I mind what they think, but it’s a deliberate blogging decision not to mind what they think and it doesn’t come naturally.

    I find that young men find it easy to relate to me. This has been the case for most of my adult life. I think because I don’t have a hidden agenda like, wanting an intimate relationship with them, and therefore they feel safe and not threatened. I suspect this is the case with you also?

    Ha! All the time. Not only do I worry about first-time visitors, but I also worry about sounding bitchy and/or stupid to regulars. Also, I have no idea how many people read this locally, which can be a bit scary. Ah well, what can you do, right? I personally thought that post was great.
