Do you all usually think before giving out your blog id to somebody? I have been thinking about it.. who should be reading my blogs.. And i came up with 2 sets of ppl -
1) basically friends / relatives (some in my age grp).. who i would wanna share my thoughts with...who would want to know me better.. discuss with me on various topics..
2) And people who do not know me (by name) because just the thought of sharing thoughts with ppl you do not know is heady...
But all this while, one thought used to pop up regularly in my mind.. should it be restricted entry.. should i give it out to only those ppl who i would wanna discuss / share such things with! I had put my blog address on orkut... but just for a day.. removed it quickly.. as i am not sure if i would want everyone to be reading it.. i mean , dont know why, but gives a strange feeling! I feel maybe .. just maybe .. everyone may not understand what i am talking bout.. I am writing about everyday things only.. but still.. For eg, you might know 10 ppl.. but you would talk bout some general things to 3 ppl, a little more (a little personal) to others, and still more personal to 2 ppl!! There is a big funnel at work here!!! There are some issues / topics that you would talk to an x type of ppl.. for whatever reason!!!
So, i have put my blog address on one site which i have just joined!! So not many ppl are listed as my frds there!!! Till now, all of you who read / mssg.. its good fun.. i am quite enjoying this banter.. I look forward to reading the comments everyday.. everyday the minute i reach home, the first thing i do is check comments and reply.. then read all your blogs.. and then put in my post!! Completely hooked on to it...
To come back to the topic at hand - but recently for the first time didnt give my blog address to someone (even though i did mention i blog) .. its strange but i didnt.. the thought was that the person doesnt blog.. will not be able to appreciate blogs in general.. may not enjoy it.. kya karna hai ..
Its very confusing.. at the end of the day a blog is meant for public consumption aint it? And continuing with the same thought why shouldnt we put our pics on the blog? I know Knife does!! Maybe becuase its a food blog.. and may not cause harm???? :-)
So what do you all do? Tell you frds / acquaintances / relatives etc that you blog? How do you screen ppl?
