So I was thinking the other day about how blogging is somewhat solitary. Sure, there's the blogging community, but that's online and I don't engage in conversations with other bloggers on a regular basis. We leave comments, read what others have written, and sometimes will participate in book chats. But blogging at times can be very solitary.
I blog by myself and even though people read what I write, I blog mainly for myself. Readers in the blogging community know me, but I was thinking about how odd it is that my blog is such a big part of who I am and my life, yet very few of my friends and co-workers know about that part of me. They know I'm a teen librarian, they know I love to read, and some know I blog, but if they don't have an interest in YA lit (and really-they should!:) why would they know about or care about my blog? It's strange to me that so many people in the online world "know" who I am, yet people I see on a daily/weekly basis don't really know about this part of me.
I'm wondering if those around you know about your blog or if you keep it to yourself? Do you sometimes feel like you have two lives-one online and one in person?
