I've Been Found

I knew that it would happen sooner or later. Someone in my life has found my blog!

Here's the story: I am on the phone with Chicago last night and he told me that he ran across my blog. Apparently he was reading the blog of The Captain, with whom he is friends. I had left a comment on The Captain's blog about the story that he wrote. When he told me that he had come upon it, I got nervous like a muthafucka. I really don't know why because there is nothing bad about him or anyone on it. But I just don't like the idea of someone that I use to date reading what I write.

But I want to know how you all feel about letting those close to you or those whom you have written about read you blog. Feel free to comment.

I made the decision long time ago that I was writing my blog for my own benefit. Others are welcome to read, but it's my blog and I'll say what I want. I know there are people reading who I didn't expect to ever see it, but I'm not going to change what I write.

I haven't allowed any of my friends read my blog. Cause I might talk about them one day and don't want any misunderstandings.

Well there is really nothing in my blog that that particular person I may mention wouldn't know about already *except for one co-worker* and even then, it is MY thoughts, MY opinions, MY feelings, how I saw the situation...I am not gonna change what I write because someone I may mention won't like it.

If I say "ABC is such an a**hole sometimes" 8 times out of 10 I would have already told ABC that they can be a a**hole sometimes already.

Besides, the reallllly personal stuff don't get put in my online blog anyway. That's what written journals are for!

Well, you've got to keep doing you, and not worry about your friend. I mean, he'll just have to understand that you are writing for you and not for anyone else. Now if you are uncomfortable with him reading it, ask him to stop. But it's a free country. Guess you could always create a new one, but in that case you'd be dodging any time you were found. Just my thoughts. Keep doing you, man...

I use to be afraid that someone I've talked about in my blog might read it. But, I don't worry about that any more. Who so ever will read, let them read!

hey pa,

im fine with those i associate with or associated with readin my blog... im big on dialogue and feel that communication brings closure to issues that we often like to leave unresolved....

Well since i am like the only one in my family that really uses the internet no chance of them coming across my page. I do not write anything I am ashamed of anyway so it wouldn't matter.

I actually notify my friends when I post to my blog. They love reading about themselves, and in some instances have asked me to write about them (ex. The Domestic Violence Among Gay Partner entries). There are other friends/family who don't know about the blog, but if they read it, it's oh well. Shem hotep

True, at the end of the day... there are certain people in my life that I would not want to read my blog.

easier to expose yourself to strangers (in general) I guess.

No deal pinkie! That's why aliases work...until someone figures out it's you. Yea, I share WAY too much on my blog - I hope no one finds out.

That's why I do the alias thing in my blog. I'm waiting for the day that someone I know stumbles across it. Fortunately my family isn't as into the INTERNET as I am.

But I still wait for that day.

I am always cautious, because my blog in the wrong hands would be lethal.


There was a rumor of my blog floating around my school. And I saw some kids looking at it during lunch, but I got over it. No one really cared.

I've been thinking about sending the address to some close friends.

If someone did tell me they found my blog, I would ask,"Did you like it? Why didn't you leave a damn comment?".(LOL)

I would be kind of leary about it...especially since, I am extremely open in my blog...I do not like that at all!

i started my blog as a way to express things that i wouldn't normally talk about ...

since august, i've written about family issues, work, friends, relationships, etc ... and there have been times when i'm prompted family, friends, and co-workers to share in the experience ...

i consider da blogland a 'free' self-help session ... and ya boy is definitely takin' advantage of it!

I guess there's nothing to worry about unless you have written something "not so good" about those people.

two people i use to day read my blog.. and i swear it is very awkward in the beginning.. then you have to design that its your life and its your blog... just keep their names out of your blog and i'm sure blogging can still be an enjoyable experience for you
