Tera recently posted on her blog about censoring her Facebook account because she added clients and coworkers as friends. Obviously there are certain things that you wouldn’t post on there if you knew that people you work with read it. You wouldn’t want to complain about work a WHOLE lot!
It got me thinking about if I sensor what I post on my blog. I finally decided that in general I don’t. What you read is pretty much a direct feed to my head. (See also nipple post) That sometimes means that I have rambly posts that go on and on forever and also have some very disjointed posts that end up in bullets.
However, after a while I got to thinking that I do indeed censor it a bit. For example, I have never posted my wife’s name (although, if you are a super sluth, you can find it). I have never posted specifically where I work or certainly have never posted who my clients are. And, I guess there haven’t ever been any noodie pictures of me on here, so I censor it in that regard too. Which of course is your loss.
The old saying probably applies: “Don’t do anything online that you wouldn’t want your mom finding out.” Although, my mom reads my blog! For that matter, last week I added her on Facebook as well.
Do you censor your blogs or facebook accounts? I think we probably all do a bit, but do you ever have an entire post written and just delete the entire thing? Anything completely off limits? Let me know!
