I’m reblogging the following because it is one of the dilemmas I face, not that I am specifically a memoir blogger. But a large part of my intent in starting a blog was to have a place to write about my past and to heal. At the same time, I’ve been hesitant to write much for fear of family stumbling onto it (I don’t link to my personal Facebook, but still) and getting riled up.
The concern about my family is also why I won’t use my full name, but have hidden behind a “handle” or pseudonym. After the first of the year, however, my blog will be “remodeled”, although it will still be on WordPress, and I will be a shade closer to being less anonymous. The posts from this blog will be exported to the new one and I will definitely be following all of the people I do now.
Does anyone else have such issues as these? What other advice might you add to what Kelsey wrote?
