Being Me - A little on Blogging Authentically
There's been a bit floating around cyberspace about being authentic online, and certainly it was spoken about at the blogging conference last weekend.
Are people being authentic on their blogs or on their Facebook status updates? Are they showing their 'true selves'?
Well firstly, we know some are not. That's just FACT. Always proceed with caution on the Internet, I say. I like to think, though, that those people are a minority.
Secondly, I think what's considered 'authentic' is a little confusing for some. Just because someone chooses not to post everything online about their life, doesn't make them not authentic. I don't post everything about my life. Oh, goodness, no. I have other people to consider when I write here - not just myself. But what I do post, I post with honesty.
As readers who have been around a while here will know, I'm not afraid to express my opinion, own up to my mistakes and share personal details about myself. Here, or anywhere else.
And even though I think my blog speaks for itself (take a look around - I won't bite), I've made the following video just in case you weren't sure if I was the real deal.
I feel very confident it will answer any questions you may have had.
