So I just started my blog yesterday, and I’ve had some great supportive feedback from you cute lil’ bees that have visited. And then I had a thought: I probably should not tell anyone that is personally involved in this wedding about the blog. I see the blog as my free for all rant fest. If I need to be petty one day, then I’ll be petty. If I need to talk endlessly about how great swatches are, then I’ll do it. Buuuut I wouldn’t necessarily speak up about my Future Mother-In-Law grievances and my preference of undergarments at the family dinner table, ya know what I mean?
Do all you Blogging Bees share your blog posts with those who know you?

I don’t. There are ups and downs to doing both. Blogs are SO fun it would be great to share with anyone who is interested, although the interest in all-things wedding can be a little overload for some. Personally, I use my blog like a private diary. Plus, no one will ever find it!
If you want to share, it’ll probably be very rewarding, but you’ll have to watch your tongue. That’s probably good advice anyway, so I’d say share unless you have good reason not to!

Um, sort of. It’s a tough balance.
I’m anonymous here on WB as Miss Cheese – sort of. I mean, my picture is next to every one of my posts, but my full name isn’t associated. The blog that feeds WB with content uses my full first name, and I’ve told a few friends and family about it, but I don’t publicize it.
Honestly, I think that semi-anonymous works for me because it keeps me a) honest, b) somewhat level-headed, and c) kind. It would be very easy to rant and rant and say not-nice things, but I’d be putting that kind of negativity out there, you know? More importantly, I find that the more I rant, the worse things feel – it’s a spiral.
My fiance knows about all of my blogs and reads them periodically (not very often, frankly), but knowing that he might, again, keeps me kind and honest… and I think that’s a good lesson for life, right? You never know who’s going to read or hear what you thought you said in confidence, so you’re better off making sure that you only say or write things that you’ll stand behind.
That being said, I fervently hope that my Future Mother-In-Law doesn’t read my blog, though I don’t care if my mom does. The stuff deep in my head is well-known to my peeps, but I don’t go broadcasting my crazy to everyone, ya know? And I have blogged about sex. And divorce. And am about to blog about birth control. And starting a family.
