Dave Taylor touches on a topic that’s brought up so often in the blogosphere. Certainly his audience is very different from my own – so that got me thinking about my own sector and just when ‘we’ should consider blogging to be too personal.
There are some aspects of my life that I choose to keep very private, however, as a stay-at-home-mom slash work-at-home-mom, I have to say that blogging isn’t just about developing an online business, it’s about keeping my own sanity by providing me with actual ‘adult’ interaction.
Now, I by comparison, Dave Taylor mentions the “water cooler” gauge in monitoring the level of information you’re providing via the net. In other words, if you wouldn’t discuss it around the water cooler with your boss, then it’s probably not a good topic to be mentioned on your blog.
For me, I’d have to say that my own gauge is if the topic is something I wouldn’t feel comfortable discussing with a grandparent or minister, then it’s probably not going to make it’s way to my blog.
What about you? How do you keep yourself from becoming too personal on your blog or is there truly anything at all that you won’t blog?
