Shhhhh!!! It's a Secret!

Today I want to know who you have told about your blog! I would be thrilled for anyone reading this to join in the conversation below in comments or even on Twitter. I began my blog back in November. At that time I didn't tell a soul. At this point it's pretty much the same. My parents kind of know that I have a "fashion/style blog," but they've never asked to see it or anything.  As for friends, my officemate at work knows, but that's it. I have another blog that my family and friends know about. That one is more about what's going on in my life and was a way of keeping them updated on my health when things were really bad this time last year. I don't know if I will ever tell my friends about it. I went to college with Monica, from HomeMadebyMonica, and although we had many mutual friends in college, we didn't really know one another. We now tweet and follow one another's blogs, but she lives across the country and I don't mind her knowing. It's been super fun with us both having blogs!

Why?? Well, partly I would say I am shy about it. I am not sure who would get it. I think personal style blogs can look a little self-absorbed to some. The other thing is, this is mine. Sound selfish? Well, it is! With the illnesses I am going through right now, a lot of things have been ripped from me. My daily running is gone, my job doesn't keep me as busy, I am not as social with my friends... there is a lot I am unable to do from day to day. My blog is something no one can take from me. It's where I go to have some time for myself and to escape. I love that. I love how it's mine, and I can say what I want and do what I want. I think my favorite part has been some of the relationships that are forming with some of my new found blog-friends. It's so sweet to make connections with people through each of our creative outlets! Don't you think??

So, I want to know:

Who knows about your blog?? 
Has this changed since you first began?? 
Why or why not?

I'll be back tomorrow for some fitness fun with possibly and outfit and definitely something for
Be Fit | Live Well | Have Fun!!

  2. Oh wait, I didn't tell any of my co-workers but somehow I think 1 may have found out about it after googling my name....RIGHT, why was he even googling my name???? My thoughts exactly! LOL But I'm proud of my blog, so I don't really mind them knowing, if the others do too.

  3. Girl I've shouted it to the ROOFTOPS! haha I have told everyone I know and still telling folks!!!! LOL :) I just enjoy it so much and although I do it for me, I also do my blog for others who might not be as comfortable with styling and buying clothes. :)

  4. I do think your blog is unique and I am exited to see it as you continue to post! I think in general, a no co-workers policy is very wise!

  5. I feel the same way! But even then I might keep it to myself. Now I am realizing, though that I used my REAL name and there aren't many of us that spell it this way. Someone I know could very well stumble upon it on Google! How funny!

  8. If it continues to develop well I think I will open up more about it, but right now I love having it {and the friends I've made} to look forward to every day! I think for awhile I have been just trying to see how it evolved, and now that I have more vision I am still enjoying it being all mine. :)

  10. My husband knows and I posted a link on my facebook wall, but I haven't told my family. I think its terribly amusing to keep a secret project and enjoy keeping it to myself :)

  11. So far the only person who knows about my blog is my boyfriend. That was a given though since we live together! Can't really keep it a secret!! I've also told my mom about it but that's pretty much it. I'd like to be able to tell others once I feel more comfortable. Like you, I'm a bit shy! :)

  12. I have told some of my fam and friends..vaguely. I understand you when you say that you are unsure that they'd "get it". Also, mine is in its "baby" stages and with my projects I kind of wait until they are a little more mature before I let my fam and friends know.

  13. Everyone knows about mine, except at work. None of my coworkers know, aside from the girl in the office next to me who I consider a friend.

    My family and friends of my family are part of the reason I started my blog. My personal style kinda "stands out" a bit but I am always receiving nice compliments from my parents and their semi-conservative friends, which surprises me a bit. They say that it's because what I wear is always classy, and that they don't often see "Gothy" people doing it in such a sophisticated way.

    However, I don't really want my average coworker to see what I wear to Goth clubs. Even though my club outfits are always elaborate and elegant creations, too many people have preconceived stereotypes about people who are different... I don't need them passing judgment on me where my career is involved! :) I don't think my "no coworkers" policy will ever change!
