Over the past few months, I have been having an ongoing discussion with a fellow blogger about the amount of personal information I put in my weblog. I feel that the my music and concert reviews are my personal thoughts. I would not want to cloud this with stuff like I went to the eye doctor on Monday and I am being evaluated later this month for contact lenses (really, I am.) If I were going to share this type of information with the world, I would do so on a separate blog. My fellow blogger feels the world needs to experience my sparkling personality online. I feel like if you want all that, call me at home or come see me in person and I will share my sparkling self with you. I realize this is kind of selfish because I definitely enjoy reading about everyone else’s lives and I do share my personal viewpoints on various topics on their blogs. It’s all about the music here and when things settle down a bit, I would like to start writing some entries on personal points of interests like the resurgence of the Hammond B-3 organ, Fender Rhodes, and electric piano in jazz which I think is quite fascinating. I hope I am not rambling too much here but I would like to ask the following question:
As bloggers, what and who determines if we are sharing enough or not enough information with the world? I know my girlfriend, A.J., will stop by and give her thoughts and wisdom.
By the way, I saw egg nog at the grocery store today so soon, and very soon, it will be time for this cake.
