Tonight I’m taking a night off blogging – off the internet in fact. I just need an evening of watching TV and not thinking about everything to do with blogging and social media.
Something not especially nice happened this afternoon, on Twitter. People talked about me, judged me and didn’t know at all what they were talking about. And while everything they said, wasn’t at all true and was misinformed, it still hurt and it still bothered me.
I know I often speak my mind and all of my friends are very used to that. However I have a line and I try to never be cruel or mean. In all honesty, I can be a bit of a bitch at times, but I’d never do it in a way that someone could get hurt.
Writing a blog and making what you have to say public, seems to leave you wide open for people to judge you. Talking on Social Media, especially Twitter, leaves you open for people to talk about you, to be cruel and to be judgmental. I am not public property and just because I speak publically at times, does not make me someone you can talk about and judge.
Though there are many plus sides to blogging, at times I feel like I should stay in my own little bubble – just like I do out in the real word.
