You know because you're here but if I met you on the street -- outside of the internet -- or if we worked together, went to school together or were even blood-related, I probably wouldn't tell you about this little space.
Because I am afraid of what you may think.
I think you might judge me for posting what I wore.
I think you might judge me for taking photos of the dinners I make.
I think you might judge me for selling tote bags on etsy.
I think that you are going to just judge this whole blog and it's such a big part of me now... so I don't think I can handle your judgement. So I won't tell you because I don't want to risk it. I don't want to be hurt.
My mom posted this blog on her Facebook account the other day and to be honest, I texted her in a panic, asking her, begging her to take it down. She didn't because she knows that sometimes us creative types have a hard time putting ourselves out there, but she also knows that I shouldn't live in fear of what others may think.
And I know that if people really wanted to know, they could find me and this blog. I'm on Twitter, I'm not in hiding.
But I'd prefer that they find me that way instead of hearing it straight from my mouth: "I have a blog."
I know that I need to have more self-confidence about this. Do any of you have suggestions for me?
Do you hide the fact that you have a blog or an etsy shop?
I'd love to hear about it.
