I'm hoping I'm not the only one with this problem, this is why I have decided to write about this.
This is for those of you who blog, those of you who have a larger reader base.
It has recently been brought to my attention that a reader of mine has, I guess, got so caught up in my blog, and feels as if we are friends in "real" life.
Not saying that I'm not friends with my readers, however, I'm completely unsure how to go about wording it.
I'm talking about someone who gets so caught up in your blog, they feel like they KNOW you, not just you but your husband, your relationship, your life, etc.
Yes, I do blog about some personal things, however, I make a point to leave a lot of personal stuff out- especially when it comes to my husband.
When someone, of which I don't know- never seen nor talked to in real life or the virtual world, starts talking about my relationship with my husband, Referring to my husband by first name (which I haven't even done in my blog in over a year), and seemingly facebook stalking me.. it gets kind of creepy.
There's a point where it's flattering, however, The way this person was talking about me, my blog, my relationship AND my husband without me not knowing the girl- AT ALL- is just a little too much.
Just really makes me think a lot. I told my husband about everything, and he was pretty weirded out by it all as well.
How do you deal with it? Do you just ignore it as if it's nothing?
I love that so many find support in what I say, or find understanding in my many rants.. But PLEASE, don't make our virtual relationship creepy! I would hate to have to make my blog private because of this.
My husband wanted me out of Tennessee because I had a stalker (seriously). I really don't want similar issues here in Virginia.
