Don't worry, I am not asking what you look at on the internet but I am curious about how many of you, especially with a partner/husband/wife but even family, know if you blog and if so, do they read you blog, and if so, do they criticise what you write? And what do they think of your blogmates?
Am I referred to as 'that old poofter/fag in Melbourne' by someone's partner? I care about being old more.
I am really interested to know what you share.
For the record, R knows I have a blog, obviously as we or I have met people through my blog. Just today I showed him an Instagram photo of Kath in Geneva who I think does some organising for a junior Eurovision. You remember her R. I've mentioned her before. Lived here in Kensington and moved to Geneva. The photo was with her boss and our Eurovision commentator Julia Zemiro.
Again today another blog mate arose when I told R I had seen the bloke in the city who used to have the cafe in Prahran. I told him something and he asked how I knew? Ah, that must be from Fen. I've told him many times about Fen, but she does not stick in his brain.
I didn't finish the 'for the record'. R read my blog at the beginning but remarked that he did not agree with my recollections of life and once even criticised me for what I wrote. I replied, fine, don't read it then and he said fine, I won't. But he did make a remark recently and I realised he could only have known that from my blog. I asked, why to you ask? No reason, he replied. Apart from one very long term friend, Our Friend in Japan, no other friend or family of mine knows or reads my blog. It does give me somewhat of a luxury in what I write but I do keep in mind one day, a friend or family may stumble across it and put two and two together.
So, to repeat after waffling, does your partner, your family, your children or the whole world read your blog?
