AUGUST 14: DO YOU USE AN ONLINE PERSONA FOR BOOK BLOGGING? (Lydia @ Lydia Scoch)
Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme created by Rukky @ Eternity Books. It is hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion. It is where different bookish topics are discussed, explained and ruminated. Different opinions are shared and blog hopping is encouraged too.
I joined this book meme because a topic could lead to different answers. It helps me share my thoughts while being educated by others posts too. Aside from this, I get to reflect on topics which interest me. Some people would not agree with my answers but that is okay, each to his own.
Blogging is a way for me to share my thoughts and feelings. This maybe for books, music, current events and others. I sometimes do blog about my personal life but not in DETAIL. An example is that I share my birthday month but not the exact date. Also, I add some personal tidbits in my monthly wrap-up. It is more of me reflecting on how I used my time as the month passed. Sometimes, I share some personal stuff like what is you favorite..? when I answer some book tags. I am a paranoid person who values safety so I don’t share sensitive data which could harm others or me.
Book blogs could expand to other topics. At first I made this blog just to share my love for books. Now, it has expanded to other topics such as k-pop, anime, movies and sometimes k-dramas. This made me less stressed and enjoy reading more. There came a time that reading and blogging became a chore that I was not able to enjoy this activities for some time. Having different topics to blog has given me a variety of choose from. This did not burn me out unlike the time that I only blogged about books.
The past months have been eventful and I cannot stop myself on commenting on some issues which are sad and frustrating. After this, I try as much as possible not to put in more personal or political stuff in this blog, aside from the family dog’s pictures and some of the food I have eaten in Instagram. I do some life updates just to give a glimpse on what is on my mind. This posts are more of my reflections on my current emotions and thoughts. Aside from me being elusive, I do have a hard time putting my emotional thoughts to words. I can share some opinions but I am not an open book because I value my privacy.
Thoughts and opinions could be shared without going over board.
Question: Do you share your personal life in your blog?
