It’s Always Someone Else I See

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 12:25 pm

It still is kind of crazy amazing to me that I take pictures of myself everyday! There are not many people in this world that do this. Some may think us bloggers are self absorbed or conceited when in truth there are many of us that are shy or reserved and this is our outlet. This blog started as a secret project I didn’t tell anyone about, and I tended to cover my face. A miracle commenter Suzanna came around right at the beginning and she was a huge motivator, all her comments kept me posting. Many thanks to you Suzanna!! As the site grew I eventually told a few people around me about the site and then eventually even my dad, my mom and a few more friends. At this point I know there are some people in my ‘real’ life who lurk in my blog, and that is kinda weird but okay.

Fellow bloggers, who knows about your blog?

    I only told a few people of my blog. At work no one knows. Like your scarf, the colour ist perfect to your teint.

    I’m glad you don’t cover your face! I take photos of myself all the time (maybe not everyday), but a month doesn’t pass by that I don’t take a few shots of myself, even before the craze about digital cameras and blogs. I know people who don’t take pictures of themselves at all; they just don’t care, that is sad.

    a couple of my friends know about and read my blog, but other than that, i dont really encourage “real” people reading it! haha
    im glad you’ve moved beyond covering your face!

    I don’t feel comfortable when my ‘real’ people visit my blog, and that’s why I write in English, I think… just to keep it far from my real (Spanish) life. My flatmate even don’t know! haha.

    Some people know about my flickr, though… My boyfriend tells everyone and I would kill him! πŸ˜›

    Only a few of my friends who are avid “blog-readers” know about my blog… there are certainly some people I hope never find out! (Especially the housemate I have often blogged about…)

    I think my situation is different from yours, since I don’t post photos of myself (yet, at least), so it is a different sort of anonymity, perhaps.

    I love the blue on you! I agree with the whole weird feeling with people you know personally checking out your blog. I kind of get wheezy when my parents tell me they check mine out once in a while.. an invasion of privacy? I guess not. We put it out there in the first place, right? πŸ™‚

    You look great, that scarf is so pretty!
    & my close friends and family are all aware of my blog. They weren’t for the first few years though (not this blog, a different one). It just sorta happened and I don’t really mind. I never tell anyone else though :).

    I just adore that scarf! It is FAB

    Thanks so much all, loving this insight into your real life readers. πŸ™‚

    That is a perfect brown belt!

    I dont feel too weird about my blog because I get to share it which makes it less personal! But I don’t tell many people about it, simply because I feel like they probably wouldn’t be interested (most of my friends are not that into fashion)

  11. WendyB says:

    Other bloggers teased me into showing my face and then I turned around and did the same thing to different shy bloggers! Passing it along…

    I have told almost everyone close to me about my blog, but I do sometimes wonder about revealing too much about myself. My friends and family know that I am nuts about fashion, clothes and change, ie. the possibility of being a style chameleon, but I have received a couple of nasty comments from an ex-boyfriend’s mother for example, for “parading myself and being desperate for strangers’ approval”, which couldn’t be further away from the truth… but I try not to think about being out in the open too much! I wonder if I even asnwered you question, but oh well. πŸ™‚
