Let's go surfin' now


I went surfing the net (actually sites with blogs) and found two people I know VERY well.

Family members in fact.

Note to self...... watch the personal info and pictures.

I now know more about these individuals than I ever EVER cared to know.

It was like watching an accident. You can't help but to look.......

One "blogger" came over yesterday and it took all that I had in me to not ask her questions. I'm a tad bit concerned about her but, honest? I'm going to keep watching the blog and will say something if it gets out of hand.

Almost all of her entries are about being drunk. She's only 24 - hopefully this is a phase.

The other blogger just went through a divorce and, apparently is ""enjoying"" all of his ex wife's friends.

Part of me really wonders 'Are bloggers TOTALLY honest?' Is this where they are revealing their inner most secrets? *sigh*

Just one of the things I do not like about blogs and some emails. people say things that elicit emotions but don't take into consideration, other people's feelings. It appears you can say anything you want without having to deal with the outcome.

Well, for sure recently the concept of "privacy" has been heavily discussed. There are bigger and bigger portions of our lives invaded by public spaces. Things like Blogs and "Reality Shows" demonstrate that a lot of people are happy and almost relieved to sacrifice a good deal of their privacy. It can be that that lot of people feels that the wall erected to protect the "I" from the "OTHERS" is a yoke; perhaps they feel that the gap between their public image and the "real" personality is intolerable and damages them.

However, this fascination for confession has always existed. We all have an exhibitionist side.

However, it's easier to lie when you only communicate via written words.

Oh my! I've been serious, for a change.

I'm honest when I blog, but not all-revealing. Some things should be kept to one's self. Even in the accounts I tell about myself in my blog, I some times ommit a few details. I suppose you could call that a lie by ommission, but I do not feel guilty. There are certain things I don't want just anyone knowing, so I tell the parts of the account that illustrate my point and leave out the parts that are too personal.

For instance, I related a part of my past a few days ago where I ended up getting in a fight with my uncle. In that account, I said I took him out to the porch, and the rest of the family remained inside. If they knew we were fighting, don't you think some one would come outside and break us up? Well, they didn't, and there was a very good reason for it, but I left that part out. It didn't rienforce the point I was making with the story, and some things people don't need to know.
