A new blogger has asked me: How much should I reveal about myself on my blog?
My short answer: as much as you’re comfortable with.
I understand that a writer who thinks her writing doesn’t reveal anything about herself is like a circus elephant trying on a disguise.
No matter how subtle or make-believe you are, you reveal a lot of you when you write.
Personally, I try to keep it as professional as possible on both my blogs, with personal touches here and there. I do share important personal news, but I usually give only the bare details.
What about you? Do you share your personal life on your blogs? Do people sharing details of personal trauma turn you off or make you read more? What would you say to the blogger who sent me this question?
Time for my regular Bloggers I (strongly) Recommend Visiting feature:
Go give them some love, and if you’re a regular supporter of this blog, I’ll try and send some love your way too, one of these days. All of these three bloggers are worth your time and effort. Promise.
