Trust yourself?

I read in another Blog about how this Blogger believed everyone - or some people - reveal too much about themselves in their Blogs, or on TV or wherever; how there is little personal privacy left after these revelations.

I tend to disagree.

Those people revealing all their intimate details and their problems on TV in this midday talk shows, how many of them do you really believe in? How many of them, and sit back to look at the way they act toward one another before answering, are merely playing for the camera and making up a script for their fifteen minutes (or less) of fame? Do they have no privacy left over once the show is aired and finished, or do people forget them as soon as the commercials air and just hope for the next story?

Those of us who appear to reveal ourselves to all and sundry in our Blogs, have we broken our own privacy; have we revealed everything about ourselves and opened ourselves completely to the world? Or do we still have our own private feelings and emotions, our beliefs and our thoughts which remain private and shared with no one?

To me, even writing various and varied thoughts in a Blog is an extension of my privacy. I don't believe that I paint a full picture of myself here or elsewhere; nor do I think that anyone is going to be able to get a complete picture of my mind from what they read in my Blog, nor from what they read in my professional writings. My privacy remains intact, my Blog remains, to all intents and purposes, the writing of an anonymous person somewhere out there.

Yep. It's nothing more than a puff of smoke on a windy day.

I think there is a certain selfish arrogance that some people harbor, that makes them think that many people really even care about anybody else. I think people put stuff on blogs because they want some connection and that expressing wildly private things is sometimes a means for getting attention. I like the bloggers who just ramble out their thoughts and experiences just to put them out there, I like that courage. I agree, there is a certain privacy here on AdultFriendFinder, and also that what you see on the screen is probably a sliver of the whole truth.

I never post everything about my life. I mainly give little insights into it. Most of my post's are either silly rants or my expierences in life. I enjoy it alot and never thought I could do something like this on a regular basis. I enjoy the comments and making others laugh. I did stand up for years in the DFW area and find this as a extension of that personality.
