First of all let me just say thank you for the comments on my previous post. I tried not to be too specific to my New Year’s guide list in case anyone wanted to implement it to their New Year’s guide list they could do so by me keeping the list simple. Anyway, I want to touch on the subject of face to face and social web socializing. I started my blog in October 2009 in an effort to meet others with similar interest from around the world. To share, learn, create, and become friends. I feel very comfortable with this type of social web socializing, and Blogging has earned me 65 followers who I consider my social web friends, you are all the best.
I don’t feel embarrassed or ridiculous when posting pictures, but over the past three years it has come to my attention that I feel an uncomfortable silence in me when I have to socialize face to face. I don’t socialize face to face often so whenever I have to attend Holiday functions I try to pull myself together. I just feel so awkward when I am surrounded by modern people who do not share the same vintage lifestyle views I have, and try to make me feel like I fit in by saying to others; she has a vintage blog, which I never told them I had, but a person close to me that knew I have created such a blog leaked out this information back in 2009 to certain people.
Now, I don’t like talking about my blog at all. I don’t mention it to anyone or go around telling people I have a blog. I just don’t feel it’s important for people to know. Unless, I Tweet about it announcing to the world I have such blog. I feel it is up to me to let others know I blog when meeting them face to face, and not have other people going around announcing it themselves. Because I tell you, it makes me feel so uneasy to have someone other than I blurt out, she has a vintage blog. Have you all experienced something similar? If yes, how did you address it? Could I be wrong about this? Or I’m I just making a big deal? What do you all think? Please let this darling homemaker know, all your comments are valuable to me.
