Things, I have never told. Why didn’t I? Will I be able to tell now? What is that prevents me from doing it?
I had a series of such uncanny thoughts whirling around in my head. Voice said, What are you thinking? Say it all. You have posed this question to yourself. Now, Don’t expect me to answer it. Ok, I’m doing it alone. First, let me share something with you.
One blog which I stumbled upon was unique in his own way. ophthalmic Photography is based on the photography, but a bit different then the usual photo blogs. As the name suggests, it captures the photo of retina of your eyes. My God, I had never thought that It could be any one’s theme of blogging. But the pictures and the description that follows every “Eye” is so intriguing , it captures your undivided attention.
Why it’s advisable to stick to certain themes in your blog? Have you ever given it a thought. It can be anything like photo blog, blog on Story telling, Technology blogs, Art blogs or video blogging and so on and on. You have got plethora of options available. May be it captures a niche of our audiences who are interested in this particular theme.
Personal theme based blogs do contain ramblings of a blogger from his everyday life. This could be anything, his experiences, his perspective of things around or the things he learned from his mistakes or from other so on.
Is there a limit to what you say?
This brings me to a question, very often it comes to every individual. Is there a limit to what you say?
Answer could be anything – a positive Yes, or even No. It depends upon the what school of thoughts you come from. If you believe, whatever have you done is morally and ethically correct and you fear none (save for God! don’t mind ,if you are an atheist like me) go ahead, publish it all. But if you are sinner, in whatever sense you consider yourself to be, you would hesitate, don’t you? Have you ever met any person who hasn’t committed a sin. Every body has secrets. Even Bill had, Monica . Swami had one of her protégé as Monica. It’s a bad-bad world. There are jackals roaming in ravine to pounce upon their prey.
With advent of social media like twitter, foursquare and face book, your life is on a page, shared every bit of it.
A True Story
Recently, I read an interview of a blogger. She claims to be a fan of Four Square, posting every detail on it. Unfortunately, the details fell into ill hands. She fell pray to some maniac, who was stalking her, courtesy Four Square . Fortunately, she was saved and she learnt her lessons. She still uses Foursquare but has changed her habit.
What we can learn from the story? Think for yourself.
- Decide beforehand, how much you would like to share with world.
- Beware that anyone and everyone can read your words. The last person you would ever want reading your website, will eventually find and read your website. Write knowing this beforehand. — Heather Armstrong of Dooce
