  1. Your post is basically what my exact train of thought has been recently (except the whole moving to Leeds thing… haven’t quite done that!). I find it particularly difficult to make my writing more ‘personal’ when I think about the fact that people who actually know me IRL sometimes read it, it kind of makes me squirm a bit and I don’t even know why!

    • It’s weird isn’t it. I’m not worried too much about what I say on social media or what I tell people IRL, but the thought of it being written down…squirm is the right word! We need to be braver 🙂 x

    • Thank you. Do you find it difficult too? It feels so strange, I write everything online but always keep myself out of the picture a bit X

  2. Thank you for your comment 🙂

    This post is exactly how I feel. I do not know why I feel embarrassed about blogging or running an Etsy shop. It makes no sense, I enjoy it so much and feel happier now that I’m blogging again, but if I had to tell anyone other than my boyfriend (who already knows) I’d die a little inside.

    Hoping that over time I lose these fears and can be fully open and true to myself. Thanks for writing this, I’m sure a LOT of bloggers feel exactly the same!

    • Thank you. It’s nice to see someone feels the same, but also a little bit sad that we feel embarrassed. I’ve started being a bit more open about mine now, but only if it naturally come in conversation, so maybe in time it will probably change for you too 🙂 xx

  3. I think your fears are totally relatable and you are not on your own in this matter! However I do think being a bit more open in your posts about you would be a good thing! you can still do it and maintain a good level of privacy! for example i don’t like to talk about or show my boyfriend in my posts in depth or anything but it’s like you said you end up sounding all cloak and dagger haha! i give ppl nicknames etc! go for it hun x

    • Thank you, I had a feeling some people might relate. Haha, yeah I don’t have secrets as such, just like a bit of privacy! More personal stuff coming up! x

  5. Hi Tina. Great post! I struggle with it sometimes as well. I’ve recently added a new series to my blog and share more personal experiences and thoughts with my readers so they can learn more about me. Then again, how personal can you be? You can also write a “10 facts about me post”, which I will do soon as well. Have a lovely weekend! XO-JEY

    • Sounds great! Yeah I have done some tag posts, but want to go a bit further into it 🙂 will check yours out! Thanks for commenting and making me realise I’m not alone X
