Afraid of the Blog!

When I started this blog, I received a strange reaction from more than one person who will remain unnamed (for my protection)! It seems some people may be threatened by blogging. I guess it's just ignorance about what a blog really is, but when I mentioned the word "Blog" it sent a certain green- eyed monster sniffing the air in hungry desperation. Maybe some people feel threatened of the possibility I could spend all my time blogging, which might cause me to neglect other duties, or maybe it's the possibility I might write something incriminating? The following conversation took place regarding my blog:

"So, you're blogging now?" (like it's a bad thing)

"Yeah. I really like it. It's fun."

"Can anyone read your blog?" (note the focus on the word anyone)

"Well, yes, I suppose so."

"It's like you live in this whole other world that we know anything about, now!"

"It's just me keeping in touch with people I know. It's not like I have an alter-identity or anything. " (which, as you know, is tempting )

"I feel like I don't know you anymore!!!"

"Well....... you can always read my blog! :)"
