Half Out The Blogger Closet...

SO...I have a confession (what's new). Y'know how I blog in the dark? No not literally in the dark, I mean like I don't tell anyone I know that this blog exists. I'd just rather share it with the great big public internet...odd that. Well here is a background filler - #BlogConfession

Okay so you catch my gist, no one I know knows I blog. And that was nice. However I vowed by the end of this year to come out of the blogging closet. Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned. Well I lied. When I made that vow and in my head I said to myself  'HAH as if I'd ACTUALLY do that, maybe everyone will just forget after 6 months or so'.....well you didn't. A couple of  bloggers recently asked if that was still my plan. DAMN IT INTERNET, why can't you forget my false vows and live happily ever after?! But nevertheless karma got a sniff of my deceitfulness and made it her will to out me. The end.

Okay I am lying again, karma didn't out me, I accidentally-on-purpose outed myself. Right let's give you a bit of background here cause I love chatting about myself, duh. So I noticed over the past few months that I was accidentally-on-purpose instagramming and tweeting blog related things but never really leaving a link to my blog. However it did raise questions and you know my whole 'don't ask don't tell' thing that I stand by well, people were asking so I was telling. I thought from this that maybe I was ready to start slowly crawling out the closet in a graceful and welcoming manner. Well that thought never really amounted past a thought because instead and in true drama queen style I stumbled out of the blogger closet and fell face forward. I don't know whether it was the excitement of seeing my friends, this new found confidence I have from blogging or the one too many pints but I was like 'YEHUH I TOTALLY BLOG' and my friends were all 'Oh what's your blog?' and I was all 'LOL as if I'd ever tell you/as if you'd ever find it'...*30 second Google search later* 'Are you The Confessions Of A Professional Drama Queen?'....crap.

I then found myself telling another friend today and offering assistance with setting up her own. WHAT.IS.WRONG.WITH.ME. It's like word vomit. Next thing you know I will be standing on street corners handing out business cards with it on. I feel this is like when America finds out Tony Stark is Iron Man but with less flashy gadgets and more sass. 

So here we are. I did it...ish. I am still far from posting it on Facebook but I am considering advertising it on my other Twitter account as well. This is a huge step people, round of applause please. And erm...if any of my friends are reading this....hi *awkwardly waves* 

P.s., This is my humpday confession

  1. I know exactly what you mean, some of my friends don't really understand the blogging world. And I was scared to tell my parents too. But now I have and its not actually as bad as I had originally thought.

    It's scary putting yourself out there, but I am sure you will do well regardless of what people think :) x

  3. I completely get it. I was afraid to put it put there to people I know, especially my parents because my mother feels the need to rebutt everything I post. I know she likes reading it and I just need to deal with it.

  7. I don't tell everyone but most of my close friends know. I'm super awkward about it though and it embarrasses me to talk about it.
