Record My Mind: Banal Records of a Pedestrian Life

Suffering and evil overwhelm me and I stew in my own juice.

4/16/2005 12:39:00 am - Why I blog so little about my personal life

I'm listening to Hysteria from Def Leppard's Hysteria album. I'm gonna go into hiding. Oh boy, I never realised how dangerous it can be to talk to a blogger. Hmmm, now a certain group of people I've never met before are gonna have views of me and my girlfriend that I may not be entirely comfortable with. And I'm like too lazy to do anything about it at this moment.

Anyway, I met up with a good friend ABM last night. She said she read my blog and wondered why I never put up any of my personal stuff online. Instead, I only put up boring quotes from obscure people that make her put her hand to her mouth and yawn and fall asleep. The only post of mine that got her attention was my post on how to fall into a woman's arms without falling into her hands.

I told her that I'm not comfortable with the possibility of my boss, my colleague, my aunty, my cousin, my younger nephews and nieces reading about my personal life. Also not comfortable with not knowing how the information may end up, that it could be printed or forwarded in emails. I find that scary for someone who values his privacy. But then, I may just be paranoid in thinking that people would find me or show that kind of interest in my life. Still, everyone should know how to blog safely. And one way to do so is to be anonymous.

So, yah my personal life actually quite interesting one I guess. I started to realise that since I started recording my life in notebooks. Another source of this realisation was the attentive and rapt looks of my friends when I regale them with tales from my life, tales that I happen to remember, tales of blunders and misadventures and my skewed perspective of the world. All with my own unique dose of humour.

But since I never really got the chance to share with an interested audience the stuff that I really find interesting (ideas from philosophers and writers) in real life, I do it online and quote passages from writers and philosophers that I find interesting. I can just offload and no one will fall asleep on me...

In any case, I started another blog somewhere else and most of the more private stuff will be there with password protected posts.
