I don’t blog like I used to because it infringes on ones privacy nowadays. If you put yourself out there on the internet, anyone can access your life and give feedback or intrude on it. I personally have never had a bad experience, but the constant shadow of a boyfriends disproving glare has helped seal away my desire to share. I want to please the person who means most to me over strangers who enjoy voyaging into my life. The other complication is the use of social media to promote ones own business endeavors is a huge way to grow ones brand for free. If you have an endearing personality and good product, connecting to other strangers through facebook, twitter, deviant art, pintrest, tumblr, and a blog are all great strategies. So how do you stay private and yet be yourself?
I guess this post is to say I have not mastered it. I have not even scratched the surface. I told a fellow crafter that I just keep trying to put out good products so that I can gain recognition through that. If I work relentlessly toward making one more thing, maybe that is the thing that will go viral and bring me to a new level of public awareness. But I don’t work relentlessly. I’m pretty lazy and pretend I work hard. Honesty with oneself is tricky. In the life I lead, I feel pulled thin, but why? Do I play too many videogames? Do I spend time with my boyfriend to appease him or because I want to? Do I do to many things for others and get resentful? Focusing on ones own needs will only improve ones situation. So what do I need?
