Internet Privacy?

So I am wondering about this whole blogging thing.

Is it wise to put personal information (such as family details, where I live, where I work, shoe size, etc...) on this site? Not only is blogging a virtual tool (I'm not talking to you face-t0-face), but it's not a particularly personal medium. Sure, I can personalize the colors and pictures, but I'm not writing to an actual person. I'm writing to ... well, I'm writing to whoever reads this. And maybe I don't want you to know some of the more personal things about me.

Now I'm not going to put my social security number on here, and I'm not going to include any bank account information, but what can I say and what can't I say? Who's reading this, after all? Who is going to read it? Does it matter? What if some creeper is reading this?

Hmmmm. This is something I've wondered. If you have thoughts, please comment below. I would like to hear your thoughts about this issue.

Hasta lasagna,



  1. I think right now your family is reading this. And maybe some random person who mis-typed in another blog address. If you gain a wider following...well, you can worry about it when it comes?
