Speaking of Secrets

I was going to wax philosophical about how great Tuesday's BlogSecret was (and it was, don't get me wrong - I loved telling my secret and sending it out there - not to mention reading other people's).

But then I started thinking that this blog is nothing but secret. Hell, I'm sitting right next to my husband, and he has no idea that I'm writing on my blog. He knows I read them, he knows I comment on them, but somehow he's either never considered that I have one or never thought to ask. Now I know Scott's not the brightest, but I also know that I'm not exactly truthful with it when it comes to this blog. Though I wouldn't lie and tell him that I don't have a blog, I certainly would be somewhat evasive if he asked.

So that got me to wondering why I keep this a secret from him. And I don't truly have the answer to that one. I'll have to ponder that.

No one in my family knows I blog. No one. I like it that way, even though my blog isn't really anything to be secretive about. Also, my husband doesn't really know I blog, either. I guess I never told him (and maybe he does know) because I didn't think he'd really care, you know? I'm pretty sure he'd not read it if he did know, and that's probably the roots of why I never let him in on it.

Also, I have to cease the comment before I say the word 'know(s)' one more time!

I haven't told anyone in my real life about my blog. No family, no friends and I find it hard to believe because I'm so passionate about blogging. I mention blogs to my friends and they often suggest I should start one or that they could see me having one but none ever seem to think I already do. I'm sure I'll tell some people eventually, but for right now, it's kind of my little secret and I think I like it that way.

It is comforting to know you have a place where you can say what you want to say when you want to say it and not worry that in two weeks your friend will read the post and get hurt feelings, etc. Mine started secret, and slowly over time my kids, husband, and sister have found it. However, mine is a secret from friends, they know I have a blog..but no idea how to find it.

Do you really think he doesn't know? Or do you think he's onto you and letting you have your innocent little world? Just curious.

Everyone in my family knows I blog. Apparently my dad has become a regular reader and one-time commenter on mine.

I was thinking about you when I read the blogsecret entries and wondering which was yours. I wouldn't think badly of you if any of the secrets were yours. Oh, well, I hated one post but I can tell that isn't yours. I tell everyone that I don't blog. I told someone once I had one but said it was set to private and that you have to have a password to read it.

My husband knows but he doesn't read. I used to think he didn't care but then he told me that he feels like it is my own private place and it's like reading my most innermost thoughts. He feels that I will tell him what I want him to know and he doesn't need to snoop around.

I am starting to wish my people didn't know about my blog. Now, not only does my father read it, so does my boyfriend's mother and sister. Yikes.

I kept my blog from my husband for a year. And then I told him and he still doesn't read it!

I still can't believe he doesn't know. It's probably better though, mine makes fun of me all the time for mine.
