This is for anyone out there that has had their blog discovered by people they didn't want reading it.
And also a message for those who are afraid of that situation happening.
ARE YOU SURPRISED?!?!?
Did you seriously think that all of this is secret and no one is ever going to find out?
There are some people out there whose significant other doesn't know.
If that is you, I will give you a tip......when they find out it will only end BADLY!
A lot of people look at blogging as a form of therapy. Like writing in a journal.
That a journal is private and NO ONE else (usually) sees it.
And there are a lot of people out there that I am sure use journals as therapy. It makes sense to me.
But blogging is NOT writing in a journal. And it is NOT private.
But I can understand that writing a blog is a form of a journal. But you better be careful what you say cause eventually someone that isn't supposed to see it, will see it.
And then what??
If you are going to put your life out there for others to read and respond to than you better prepare yourself for when someone sees it and doesn't like it.
Cause when you start a blog and start complaining about your life or the people in it you take the risk of those people finding it and getting upset.
I have read about multiple occasions of this. And I have had the worry on my own as far as some friends that I may have insulted on here.
Every time you give a detail about your life, a puzzle piece if you will, you are giving people a clue to your real identity.
And with every little clue people can start to piece together the puzzle.
Even the biggest puzzle can be put together with time and effort.
If someone wants to know who you are they will find out and if you are giving them daily updates than you are just helping the cause.
Even when you give total anonymity to your characters and yourself people could still figure it out. All it takes is a little knowledge of the real world situation.
If you have no connection other than the blog to readers than it would be almost impossible to complete the puzzle.
The problem is.......
There is no way to tell who is reading.
