I started this blog for me. I badly needed some sort of outlet, and i have to say since starting this blog, expressing myself, and connecting with all of you, I really feel like home. I decided I wanted this blog to be 100% anonymous, if I were to really pour my heart out i needed to know that no one I know would see it. I write about things I don’t even say out loud, topics and feelings I have not been able to get out. It was so important to me that it was my Secret Blog.
A few people in my life know about this blog, but they haven’t even asked what it’s called as they understand it’s very personal to me. They don’t quite understand what the ‘point’ of blogs are, but that’s a story for another time.
I have been finding it harder and harder to keep this blog anonymous, it’s lots of little things but they can drive me crazy.
1. You don’t know my name
I do find this quite hard, for instance, if someone has reached out and contacted me though my ‘contact me’ page and we’re chatting back and forth, I can’t sign off with my name!! As I’ve said before I have made friends on WordPress through my comment section and sometimes I really have to hold back not sharing my name. But if you do want to call me something, you can call me Secret!
2. You don’t know what I look like
Sometimes I think I would like to post about cute new dresses I buy or to post about feeling ‘body positive’ that day, things like that would be fun to do. But that would really give me away, even if I cut my head off people would still know it’s me!
3. Not using other people’s names
When I am writing about my children I am constantly having to delete their names! I can’t help it, I instantly type them, then realise I need to say ‘my son’ or ‘my daughter.’ Same goes for Mr Secret Blog, it would be so much easier to just use their names!
4. Not sharing photos of my children
I want to show off my beautiful babies! It’s as simple as that!
5. Not being too specific
If I want to go into details about the world around me I always have to stop and think, if the person I was talking about read my post would they know it was about them? And if the answer is yes, I have to bin the post as it’s not worth the come back.
6. Not talking about my business
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that I run a business from home, this is something I would love to talk more about as I feel I would have some really good tips and tricks about the field I’m in but I would really lose a lot of privacy by opening that can of worms.
I would love to hear if you can relate to any of these issues! Please comment below, let’s get chatting ❤️
