Pondering With a Purpose - Blog World vs. Real World

This week's topic for Pondering With a Purpose is your blog world versus your real world.  Are they separate lives, the same?

Think on Thursday

This kind of ties into last week's topic, listening, at least for me.  In my blog world, I can talk about almost anything.  I can get it all off my chest with no interruptions.  So it's nice.  In the real world I don't always have that luxury.  To be honest, how many people in real life want to hear me talk for 20 minutes about a piece from my shot glass collection each week? I don't blame them! But in blog world if a blogger's post is irrelevant to you, you can skim, discontinue reading it, or not open it at all.  But generally, people in the blog world want to read about these somewhat irrelevant moments in your life.  It's what it's all about.  

In conclusion, I would definitely say that my blog world and my real world are definitely two separate things.  And I feel it is good that they are separate because one can be an outlet from the other.  When I have a frustrating conversation or experience in real life, I can log on to Blogger and complain about it, or I can talk about something completely different.  And vice versa, but I can honestly say I haven't had a frustrating moment in blog world, except for the occasional difficulty.  My blog is an extension of my voice, it's a place for me to speak in detail about things that I don't always have the opportunity to speak about in real life.  I like it here.


  1. I keep the two worlds mostly separate, too. It's easier and less stressful that way and it's nice to have a place to be me without the masks.

  2. So very true lady, I started my blog and had made a point in making it ALL positive but who was I fooling I need to let loose like everyone else and blog world is a great outlet. I enjoy your blog world so do not change a thing :))

    1. Thanks so much Janice!! I try to stay positive but every once in a while I have one of those days........

  3. I think its so true that these places are very much our places To Be Heard. others come to hear what we have to say....and I most certainly do not get that in my real life. Who has the time to listen to me..especially while my children run in noisey circles around us.
    but I also find that bloggers, perhaps because we are to some extent "writers" often have dialogue on a deeper level. and I think that is very appealing to many, and why they listen.

  4. I agree... I have never been frustrated in my blogging world either and I am often frustrated in the real world.....

    I love the way you tied it in with last week's topic....

    Thanks for pondering with me :)

    1. You are very welcome, and thank you!! :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
