Do people in your real life know you blog?


Beyond the Books is a weekly meme hosted at Kissin’BlueKaren. Beyond the Books is a weekly meme of mostly non-bookish topics. Share the link to your blog post at her site and we all have fun learning about each other. For more information and future topics.

I’ve decided to do the Beyond the Books meme sometimes, because I like finding out more about other bloggers. It’s fun to share a few non-bookish things about ourselves.

This week’s topic: Do people in your real life know you blog?

My immediate family and a few other people know I blog. My daughters read my blog sometimes and sometimes I ask my husband’s opinion on how something sounds or looks. One of my daughters even reviewed a book on my blog a couple of years ago and I hoped she would do more, but she’s too busy right now. My son knows I blog, but I don’t know if he has ever read any of my posts.

Most of my friends and family don’t read very much. If they do read they don’t read the same kinds of books I read. That’s one reason I blog–to talk to other people who love the same kinds of books I read. However, one of my daughters did read some of my blog posts last week and left some comments which is kind of funny since she didn’t know I was writing this post!

I’m always hesitant to mention to people that I have a blog and the few times I have they haven’t been very interested…lol. Especially when they hear I like to read science fiction, fantasy and mysteries.

Do your family or friends know you blog? Do they read your blog?
