Anonymous confessions

February 16, 2009

No, this is not my first blog. It’s not even my second blog. It is, however, my first public blog that I’ve shared with the masses. I have an anonymous blog.

When I set up khartline.com, I wanted it to be a place where I could share about what’s going on in my life. No idea if people really read this, but figured it would be a great exercise in being a bit more transparent. Over the past few days, however, I’ve had a few posts in my head yet am not ready to share here. The alternative…go back to the anonymous blog just to get it out of my head.

Why do I have an anonymous blog? It started as a self-prescribed therapy tool for myself. I have lots of things in my life that I avoid dealing with, including things I’ve avoided for years and things I’m still avoiding. It was a ‘safe’ place where I could start dealing with all of those things. Don’t judge…we all have ‘things’ in our past we avoid, don’t we?

Yes, I have readers over there. Well, I used to. Seeing as it’s been a while, no idea if they’re still around. I had a little mini-community of support there. My cheerleaders, if you care to call them that. I’d return the favor as I’d follow their blogs as well and give my two cents where I felt it was worthy.

My anonymous blog, however, wasn’t really for anyone other then myself. I will admit it was comforting to hear what others had to say, even if they didn’t know me in real life. I went through a period of my life where I wrote about someone who read the blog. He knew about the blog, read and even commented. Things I wrote weren’t always pretty, but they were real and honest. That’s what that blog was there for. I didn’t care that he knew I was referencing him.

What puzzles me is why I can’t get over posting my more personal thoughts here, on khartline.com. If I could do it on my anonymous blog, when I KNEW that it was being read by the person I referenced, why can’t I do the same here?

Hoping to share more here about the real me, what’s going on and not going back to the anonymous blog to hide. :-/

    Girl, I didn’t realize you started another blog. You never said anything in your old one. Glad to see you kept up the blogging and decided to go public – it’s definitely something different, isn’t it? Guess I’ll be adding the feed 😉
