During a recent trip to Manchester to visit a work friend, I got quizzed on why I wouldn’t give out my URL. I was asked why if I want my blog to get hits and grow, why I don’t tell everyone. Since I get this type of question a fair bit, I thought I’d address it here.
The oversimplified answer is; I protect my URL for an easy life. I use to, many moons ago, share it freely and it resulted in more drama than one person should have to deal with. So when I moved my blog here, I decided I needed to protect myself from that. It hasn’t worked completely; I’ve been threatened with a few lawsuits, but that’s all the more reason to limit the possible damage. I’m not shy about what I do, I just need a little bit of a wall.
The less simple answer is; my blog isn’t about me…. Let me try and explain without sounding like a crazy
( er) person. When you watch a vlog your opinion is swayed before
anything is even said. We’re all shallow to some level. By keeping my anonymity, this place becomes about my stories, experiences and opinions and not about me per
se. It allows us to connect on the experiences and opinions rather than on who
I hope that makes sense and if not I’ll blame it on still being a little rusty and whole lot
crazy. Before I go I’m going to leave you with this question; what question
do you always get from your friends? Let me know in the comment box below. And
as always, stay and play safe.
