Y'know, when I first began this blog I didn't think much of it. I have started blogs before, all of which fell through. Then it started becoming something of an addiction. I HAVE to blog almost daily, when I'm in an odd situation I immedeatly start phrasing it in my head so I can blog about it. (My name is Mynna and I'm a blog-oholic).
Anyhoo, as it grew from one post to eleven, it slowly became my pride and joy. My work in progress. My book that I've always wanted to write. And I started giving the address to people.
First to Dee, then to a friend of mine in Bath, then to N. And the other day I was chilling with some friends when I casually mentioned my blog and promised to send them my link.
And then it struck me. Oh no, what was I doing? The more people I gave the link to, the more chances there were that my carefully cherished anonymity would blow.
Already my friend in Bath is mailing me going, "Oh there's no need for you to tell me anything, I get it all off your blog." And N turns to me the other day and goes, "So you called K, huh?" And Dee was upset because something she was keeping secret turned up as the very first result on Yahoo search (damn them and their highlighted entries!)
So, no more giving out my link. From now on, besides the people I've already given the link to, I will stay happily anonymous. Amen.
PS: Out of curiousity how many of you have given your link to your friends and family and what were the consequences? I'd love to know ;)
