I was once told that if I wanted the blog to be successful, then I had to “bare all”!! ” The more you show, the more you get”!! And there are certainly some very successful blogs out there, who prove that true.
There is a big element of voyeurism to blogging, I know that. I do it too. But I also enjoy the blogs that make me laugh with their witty writing, or make me dream with tales of where they live, or please my eye with their perfect taste and clever styling of small vignettes .
Strangely enough, I don’t really mind if a blogger is telling the truth or fabricating … I just want to be entertained. Each blogger has to decide how far they want to go. I’m not comfortable showing pictures of myself, or of my family (apart from the dogs!), but I know that not everyone feels that way. [blank]
