In which we wonder what we’re hiding


Gordon has written something very interesting about why he likes reading blogs.

…now and again I’m still taken aback when I read something on a blog that I hadn’t previously considered. … I mean when someone, as part of a post, mentions something specific about themselves that I hadn’t previously noted.

You should go and read the whole thing, because it’s good. Essentially,* he loves the occasional sudden reminders that you don’t know much about even your regular reads. There are fundamental parts of their personalities that don’t get mentioned.

Personally, when I started this blog, I particularly wanted to hide certain things. Well, “hide” is the wrong word – “omit” would be better. So, there are lots of things about myself that I don’t talk about.** Some of the things on the original list, though, have probably seeped through by now. It makes me wonder, though: those of you who read this site even though you don’t know me personally, or from one of the messageboard sites I post on. Do you care that you don’t know very much about me?***

* and, Gordon, if you’re reading this, I hope I’m not misrepresenting you by my overly-trimmed summary

** some just because they’re boring.

*** after all, your mental picture of me is probably better-looking than the real thing.

    Hang on, who are you again?

    Doesn’t bother me how much you reveal (or don’t). The content here is good enough to keep me reading.

    And no worries, summarise as much as you like – just glad that you, and others, seemed to have enjoyed the post.
