Do you have a secret blogging life? Are you connected to your “real life” friends and family through social media? How does that affect your writing?

For the second week in a row, this topic hits home! You are scaring me! My business is a social media marketing company called Little Blog Dressin Daytona Beach, FL-it is a little deceiving-first, I am not a dressmaker, and I don't only just blog. But when I break it down to people that can wrap their head (or give a hoot) of what I do-I describe that it is almost like I have two jobs (lives)...Little Blog Dress is my company that pays the bills providing social media for your business through Facebook, Twitter, Online Reviews and Blogs. Me, Inc. starts at 5p...or sometimes at 5a when I wake up and well, lets be honest-when I get sidetracked throughout the day where I write on The Little Blog Dress-a blog about social media, career and healthy eating that is pink and fluffy and for women. 

I live in Central Florida which is lately not known for much more than Casey Anthony and Trayvon Martin...there is not a ton of interest on growing social media trends. A handful, and I mean less than a dozen residents in my immediate area even has a presence on Twitter. My boyfriend's cousin always asks me if I am still doing that internet thing. To even talk about my blog brings daze and confusion to all who listen. Why do you do it? Do you make money? are the questions that come up.

So, I take it to Twitter and networks like SOC to build it and brand it and set goals to figure out where I want to take this little project of mine. I guess when I get a good contribution opportunity, I can show it to the non bloggers/believers and say SEE this is what I have been doing. Regardless, my blog and writing brings me an eternal joy, a network of amazing people and a sense of worth that little else does.

  1. I enjoyed reading this. My family and really good friends know about my blog. I don't really tell many people like co-workers etc. They seem to find out on their own by those who are friends of mine. They usually are curious and visit. Since I am new to blogging I am always a bit nervous about wondering "what people think" and am working on not worrying about it. I am really enjoying blogging and the fun community of great people I have been meeting.

  2. I've been blogging for 6 years this month and started very slowly and a bit privately. I used it to deal with the death of my best friend and my mother all within a few months time. I ranted and raved sometimes and sometimes my words were very benign. The rants about family and friends never got me in trouble but the benign words caused me some grief. One time I innocently mentioned being on a pontoon boat with "friends" for 4 hours with the non-stop country music I hate. Well, one friend told the boat owner and the problems caused me some explaining. You just never know what words can do. Now I never mention family except for the happy news stuff, no problem stuff. I just blog and love it.

  3. Yes. I know this. I I've been asked by in-laws if I'm still doing that Twitter thing. I just smile and nod and say yes because I know they don't get it. And honestly, I only care that the people that matter actually get it.
