Well it finally happened.
My IRL friends discovered my separate blog accounts for Twitter and Instagram.
Bloggy friends, you know what that means.. They found my little piece of Blogworld.
Cue anxiety attack.
Whitney has talked about it.
Beth has talked about it.
Erin has talked about it.
Helene very recently talked about it.
And seriously countless others. It's a pretty hot topic.
A lot, A LOT of bloggers create blogs and start writing and don't tell people in their real life. I'd say 90% of the time it's not because they are totally different people attempting to lead a totally different life. Usually everyone says the same things:
They don't want to censor themselves.
They want to be "real".
They don't want to be judged.
All of those apply to me.
I also feel like it's hard to explain blogging to people who don't blog and/or don't read blogs a lot. We say things and do things a certain way for a certain reason. I don't think I'm a different person.
When I'm blogging, I act like a blogger and I talk like a blogger because I'm talking to people who are bloggers.
When I'm working at the CPA office I act like a professional and I talk like a professional because I'm talking to people who are professionals.
When I'm working for athletics I act and talk much more casually than I do at the office. Different situations call for different aspects of my personality.
So even though I had a bit of a panic attack on Monday night and my anxiety is a little high, I'm also a little excited that I can finally share this with my IRL friends. It just might take me a tiny bit longer to get used to it.
So shout out to my dgrm girls! Hi!
