Initially, I began Whiskey Wednesday as an opportunity for me to “be myself” on my blog. I forewarned my visitors that this was “my space” where anything goes.
But is that a good idea?
There’s been some discussion about what constitutes “To Much Information” or TMI. Though many interesting ideas were bandied about, this oneseemed to be the one that made the most sense.
It isn’t that you’d be grossed out by personal sexual information about me. Or even that you’d judge me for the things I may or may not do in the bedroom as opposed to what I write. It’s that some creepy weird person could find me and stalk me. And I’m not difficult to find.
But how do I come across as warm and approachable yet retain my distance from “weirdos”. I mean, all you have to do is see the searches that find my blog to know that people look for very twisted stuff and FIND ME.
It’s a little unsettling.
I think I walk a fine line of personal revelation without huge drama or TMI. But then, who sets the standards here? Considering I write erotic romance, it’s a question I deal with. What do you all think? When you visit an author’s blog, what would “step over the line”? I do share personal info, but I try and find a balance. The interesting thing is that, especially since I’ve started frequenting local blogs in my county, I’ve found people who the Redneck knows. And they read this blog.
It all makes my head hurt. LOL.
Let me know your thoughts. Even if they’re random and unrelated.
