Kinda Like That Dream Where You're Naked...

I'm a little nervous. All my friends back home knew about my blog and they were my first fans. Not that I have millions of fans now - I have 101. No, 102. Nope, now 99. Ok, back to 101. You people are finicky bastards!

Anywhooo, they knew about my blog and also knew anything they did or said was fair game for blog fodder. They also knew of my deep deep love for the word fuck. But here? Not so much. Well, not so many friends first of all but the one friend I have made hasn't been properly "jumped in" as far as those aspects of me.

By the way, ya'll, she's the one who came bearing cookies a couple of weeks ago and you guys were wrooooong, she looks that cute and put together all the time. I try not to hold that against her. It's tough.

So I'm nervous because I'm not sure how she'd take the blog. I'm also not sure how she'll take being in the blog. I imagine it would piss some people off. I mean, I'm not posting her full name, address, and pictures of her kids here. Yet. But still. She's gonna find out about it eventually. Especially if I friend her on Facebook. See, she mentioned being on there and fear grabbed my heart. I'm about to be busted out in a big, bad way.

Now I don't know why I'm asking you, you guys told me she would be covered in peanut butter and wearing no make-up the next time I saw her. But should I give up and let it all hang out or wait and spin my web a bit more?

Nobody, and I mean nobody (except my sister) that knows me knows about my blog. If I were to meet a blog friend, that would be fine and I have a few blog friends that are Facebook friends but I started this as a way to vent and as a diary and if people know stuff, they tell others. Just my opinion. Say nothing.

If I were you, I would wait and get her to totally love you and then let things come out.

Your blog and your facebook are who you are....if she doesn't like it then she probably isn't going to be a good friend. Now OR later.....gotta be yourself!!!!!

It's been my experience that the majority of people out there are of the "thinkers" catagory, where as I (and I'm guessing you too) are of the "sayers" catagory. We say what they're thinking but we still catch shit for it.
Try the "win friends and influence people" approach for a bit, get a better vibe before you reveal your whole "fucking" inner core. ;)
That being said, I so do not practice what I preach.. =)

I am on the same page as "Funny In My Mind" up there. No one who is in my "real" life knows about my blog except for 1 writer friend who encourages everyone to have a free place to write without over-editing.
Don't tell untill you have to.

ROFLMBO!!!!! Okay... here is the thing... when/if you decide to add her to facebook you might want to have a face to face over coffee fun or something (only I don't drink coffee... lol..ooh, wait, this isn't about me) ... anyway ... then you say "you may see something about my blog in there, I love to blog have you ever blogged?" Make sure is a nice long run on sentence with not breaths and then take a deep one - ya know one of those really exaggerated ones - and then don't let her talk either and say "well when you brought cookies the other day, well I added you to my blog, and ya know I'm pretty funny - ALL MY READERS SAY SO - and well I made it funny - PURELY FOR THEIR ENTERTAINMENT - and so I wanted to warn you about it first and just know that I loved it, appreciated it, and really hope that you have ratty sweats and hang out in your house with no makeup cuz if you are as put together as you were that day/are now... I might have to kill you" ... yep.... yep that sounds good.

Everyone knows about my blog. My husband, my mom, my friends, people I went to in highschool who are on my facebook only cuz they asked but I have no idea when we said 10 words to each other in highschool.... yep... ::sigh::

ew toughy. I'd personally wait to tell her. Get a different persona for FaceBook so she can't connect the two. All you know of her thus far is she makes (or buys) cookies. Could be a trap!

I keep my blog from friends/family (except husband). I rather like having something they don't know about.

I almost told one friend about my blog as we got on the subject on Facebook, blogs, Twitter, etc. Man oh man am I so glad I didn't as she went on to give her opinion about people who read & write blogs & wow - it wasn't pretty.

I had my first date with Mr. McDreamy this past weekend and my blog was one of the topics of conversation during dinner. I know he googled me before we went out... I know he read my blog... It sort of eliminates some of that "getting to know you" bullshit but it also didn't give me any room to lie about how f'n WONDERFUL I am... He already knew about my broken heart, my addiction to WoW, and just how obnoxious my kids can be... and he DIDN'T RUN IN THE OTHER DIRECTION?!?!

His only request was that I use a pseudonym for him... hence Mr. McDreamy (because Sexy Beast was already taken).

For the record, I treat my blog just like a diary. I don't believe in holding secrets anymore so WYSIWYG with me. I say "go for it!" You never know... she may end up commenting with an "Amen, sister! I feel the same way about JN!"
