Why I Keep My Blog A Secret From Most

I can count the number of people who know about my blog on one hand.

And that’s because I keep my blog a secret and in this post, I’m going to tell you why I keep my blog a secret from most.

Why I Keep My Blog A Secret From Most

I’ve been blogging seriously for about 3 years now but most of my peers and family do not know that I am the person behind Weird & Liberated, in fact, I don’t think they even know it exists.

My blog covers a lot of personal aspects of my life meaning the subject-matter often tends to be personal. I talk a lot about my struggles with things like unemployment and some of my personal traumas.

The main reason why I keep my blog a secret from most is that there’s a lot of sensitive information on here and some of these things, the people in my personal life do not need to know but I share them because it’s therapeutic for me. And I’m pretty sure others will relate…

I think that being kind of anonymous has helped me to remain authentic and honest. I’m kind of a shy person at times but I feel like here I am 100 % me without any fear of judgment.

I also sometimes feel that if people in my personal life start to read my blog and they know it’s me writing, I will feel the need to start filtering myself.

I’m pretty much “hiding in plain sight” though because that is my actual face in my bio hahaha…

I never started this for fame or recognition. Writing is just something I love doing and it’s therapeutic for me.

Anyway, that’s that on that!

  1. I’m totally with you – I keep my blog anonymous for the same reason. (and the only person in my life who knows about it is my bf.)

  2. I can completely relate to this. Although I use my name and image publicly, most of my friends and family don’t know about the blog.

  3. I can relate to this! I kept my blog also a secret for some time! It’s only now for the last 2 months that I am sharing my content to people and family and friends.
    Ps: Great Post
