If You Don't Know Me

Sometimes I wish I held absolute anonymity on my blog, and that no one, not even my family, knew who I was on the Internet. There's so much I want to say, like in a diary, but can't. I can't go about bitching about a relative without serious repercussions, I can't vent my frustrations regarding a certain company without the fear of getting sued for libel, etc.

I used to have an anonymous blog. Nobody knew about the existence of that blog, and I remembered dishing out a lot of angst when I was going through a bad relationship. After it crashed and burned, I recovered from it, and had closure by deleting it.

Not that I want to bring that up again, but I can't help but wonder if no one knew who I was at all, under another nom de plume, would I still be able to write what I really wanted to write?

Do you feel this way too? That if no one knew who you were, would you pour out your heart to the world?

Yup... I tot that was what I wanted to do when I first started blogging. But then I realised that I couldn't just blog out my feelings just like that without hurting others (if they happened to read it)

My last post, I battled hard to post or not to post about the lady who passed away. I decided... better not...

*grin* yes, Tine. Like you, I used to have another blog too, in private. There are certain things I couldn't share with anyone else except my blog so, guess it is a healthy channel for me in order to keep a balance life. :)

Hi Tine, I can so relate to that! There are things now bottled up inside me that I really want to rant on a blog somewhere but don't really want to in case it is read or misconstrued by people who know me! Its hard!
