Blogs, Themes and Privacy

I was out with a couple of friends the other day and when one of them realised I’m maintaining a blog, he promptly asked what’s the theme of it? Well, if you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll realise my theme is me. He didn’t quite agree that’s a theme and I know what he means but unlike other blogs, I don’t specially focus on food, kids, photography, cars, design, reviews … I kinda write about what I’m up to, what’s exciting me, what’s bothering me … so in essence it’s about me, me and me :p

Then another friend asked why is it that I never write about my husband? Well, that’s because he has asked me not to. So I write of him in a third party kind of way when he is kinda involved in my story and he is referred to as ‘my husband’ and if you don’t know us, you won’t know his name. No posting of his pictures as well.

At least not ones that he’s recognizable in. He’s just not quite ready to have what I think of him all over on the world wide web. Even though, there is only about say 5 people who read this blog … all of whom know him :p but I respect his privacy nonetheless. With the other people in my life, I’m also sensitive to their privacy. After all, while I’m all ready to bare my soul for all to read, they may not be so unless they have public blogs of their own, I won’t refer to them by their names either.

Self-centered and narcissistic? Maybe, I don’t know actually … this blog is a little journal that’s constantly evolving as I am and the main reason for it, is to keep family and friends who don’t see me all the time, updated with my life. It is also a concerted effort on my part to not discuss volatile topics like politics, religion, senior management at work and such, despite my strong opinions on these things.

Mainly because this blog is for happy inspirational moments so that I can fulfill my life’s mission to be part of the world’s solutions rather than problems.

I’m not even sure if this post is necessary but I thought since it’s about me, it fits with the theme 🙂 So if there’s anything else you’d like to read about, leave me a comment coz if you know me, you’ll know I have an opinion about everything 😛
