In the blogosphere...well MY little blog anyway...what is appropriate to talk about? I mean there is a line somewhere that would be stepped over if I would talk about...fill in the blank topic...right?!? Part of me wants to say: "This is MY blog I will talk about whatever I want regardless of outside expectations and standards!" While this may be true, to a degree...what about inside expectations and appropriateness standards, I'm talking about MY line? Of course there are some things that I wouldn't blog about for a plethora of reasons: It's offensive to some, it's too embarrassing, it is private and not for general consumption etc.
The blog I have swirling in my head probably fits in each of those categories. "There are some topics that just aren't seemly to discuss in an open forum" ...says my grown up, well conscienced self. This is countered by the other side which says... "This is a topic that some women might relate to, and quite frankly it's funny."
My blog is not intended to be educational...though it could happen. I'm not striving to be serious, yet from time to time it is. It is not my goal to push the envelope with regard to socially acceptable topics, but I might now and then.
What topics should be off limits in a woman of character's blog? Is it ok, for instance, to tell a true 1st hand story about a "wardrobe malfunction"? Is it ok to talk about female situations like menopause, cycles, or breasts...matter of factly discussing that we have them...I mean the issues, and here is what is going on with that? What about other socially awkward topics like bad breath, or gas?
It has become increasingly easier for me to open up and share from my heart...frankly, and honestly. But when does it become over-sharing?
So what do YOU think...where is the line? What are your standards for your blog, and what topics are off limit for you?
