Are Bloggers Personalities Revealed or Well Masked?

I have had such a wonderful experience in this forum. Geez, there are some really diverse people in here. We have the very intelligent, the incredibly witty, the thought provokingly poignant, the very heartfelt sincere, the outrageous, the off the wall, and just about every combination there of.

As I cruise around reading I play a game with myself. What, if anything, is reveled about the writer in a blog or a comment? Are guarded or open?

Many are very open, a few are secretive, some are downright difficult to figure. I think I'm fairly simple to read. I'm often frequently somewhat revealing in nearly almost many of the things I say. I'm just easy.

Often, in public, we all put forth an image we wish others to see. Not uncommon at all, maybe even normal. I wonder if that same thing occurs in here? How guarded or unguarded are we all? Ever wear a disguise?

I don't hold back in my blog or my comments. I figure none of these people know who I really am, so I am already disguised enough. There's no point in adding layers to the anonymity. I can see where some folks could get a kick out of role playing through a blog though… it’s probably just like the way I log into lesbian chat rooms and pretend to be a woman… or at least I used to, until one day I realized all the other lesbians could really be guys pretending to be women…

TDA1, I am in hiding most of the time. Here I feel like I can talk about what I want to talk about. It's strange, the people around me seem to like me better as the quiet little abandonned spouse and don't really want to know that I am moving on much less hear the details and really don't want any conversation about any problems or doubts I might have. So here, I'm real. Always. Out there, it depends on the audience if they get live or Memorex...

As for the other inhabitants of blogland, there are some that I can tell are real, some I hope are real and some that for their sake I sure hope that what I read isn't all there is to them.

by the way, I love 'nearly almost many'... can I steal that line?

Not all who wander are lost.

I think I'm probably about as guarded as you are TDA. You won't post your real age and my face isn't going to make it on this site, other than that I'm pretty much as I appear around this place.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Aren't we all just actors and actresses on a stage? Depending on the circumstances, you play the part that you are given. Unfortunately, we never know what the script will be.

I am very open in here and in real life for that matter. I figure people should like me for who I am, and if they don't... it's their loss!

In the blog setting, all can be whatever they want or make themselves appear a certain way. On this site, I have been very honest - otherwise, what's the fun - putting all your real thoughts out there for anyone to read... that's what keeps me reading, commenting, and blogging. I like revealing myself to others...

In Hiding in Real Time

I do want to let some people know that not long ago I had a different profile. I deleted my earlier profile to protect myself and my lover. It seems that one person who happens to know me in real time confronted me about AdultFriendFinder. It caused a knee-jerk reaction so I deleted my profile. I don't know if I did the right thing but I found I couldn't and didn't want to stay away from blogville. So I created a new handle that maybe this person won't discover. Even if this person does discover my handle I am ready to tell them it's none of their business. In real time I have to have the persona of a professional, divorced mother of two teenagers. I am that woman but I am more. Here in blogville I can be more.

(Well Dr. Tall...This subject was going to be the topic of my next blog post! I don't have to write it now!) I began my blog very conservatively. Carefully selecting what I was comfortable in revealing. I'm more open now. I agree with many of the others; it's a safe space here where you can express what's inside or perhaps take the risk to discover a different aspect of one's self while in like minded company. I think I've done a little of both. I'm more open here and more relaxed. I've given the "playful woman" permission to be exposed here. In real life, I'm conservative and more reserved; at least until I'm comfortable with the present company. Great Post! I like It!

Hugs & Kisses My Friend!

Many who know me say I am like an open book , you have only to look deep into the pages and words to know me, others say they can not figure me out ???????????????, guess it depends on the reader and their intuition.


mi_mwpm 51M

8/6/2005 10:23 pm

I'm my most open here. I'd never "kiss and tell" or put my emotions on display in real life, but here it seems right and so I do.


jungandhorney 42F

8/6/2005 10:37 pm

I am always pretty open about myself as I really don't care what most people think about me. Which is probably why I am single.......but anyhow, trying to be someone you are not or trying to disguise yourself is too difficult as it requires lots of work and lots of upkeep. I don't have that kind of time or energy.

So, I will be me and if you like me, great! if not, oh well. And if I piss you off, deal with it.

I would like to think that I am honest and open, both here in blogland and in real life. I learned long ago to put everything on the table and have no time or patience for deception However, I realize that a lot of men misrepresent themselves so they can get some of what you have to offer. Easy for me to weed out so far thankfully. And should I meet up with one of them for a face to face, and see the truth, poof they are gone...

What I put out there is purely me, my thoughts and experiences. It is an outlet when I am upset, or to share my thoughts at any given moment. And it has proven to be an asset, since I have made contact with some new people that I may have overlooked before.

DCE is like a secret identity.

Anyone that has met me offline will tell you that I'm pretty much the way I come across on my blog.

My blog is "fun" (maybe not for everyone - LO but that is just one side of me.

I keep deeply personal things off of the site for fear that I'll slip up and include something that could blow my cover.

Ah, the joys of paranoia...

Daphne I am terminally semi-revealing about myself, unless of course I'm not. I look my age and that photo is recent. Just goes to show what clean living does.

Yes, I suffer from the Pinocchio Syndrome.

F&F you are so correct. That is the way everyone should be. We should all be able to accept people for exactly who they are. Of course in your case it is easier than it is for me. You're clever and cute. I'm brain damaged and have wrinkly balls.

NM that is a real shame! I hate to hear stories of harrassment and stalking! That just isn't right. Maybe someday, the powers to be either in government or somewhere will enact stalking penalties on the net like they do in real life. What the heck am I thinking??

BETTER than the ones in real life.
