Last week I wrote about different kinds of craft blog content, but a lot of craft blogs feature more than just crafty stuff and that sort of content tends to be more personal. When it comes to Untangling Knots, I don’t talk about my life very frequently. Aside from the fact that my existence is generally mundane, my problems and opinions that aren’t craft related don’t feel like they fit here. Sometimes I worry that by leaving out the personal stuff, my blog makes me come off as something that I’m not. I was brought up thinking that the internet (a) the internet is for everyone and anyone can read what I write publicly, (b) the internet is forever, and (c) it’s rude to put other people on the internet if they don’t want to be there. That makes me careful about what I write and who I include in pictures, but I find that it’s easier to just not write about stuff than deal with figuring out where things cross the line.
This leads me to ask how much personal is just right for you? How do you figure out where the line is for your own blog?
