So when you just kind of let yourself hang out there on the Internet, what does that say about you? Or rather, what does your carefully edited blog self say about you?
My blog? Well it is obvious I like getting dressed. I like clothes and I like putting clothes together. (And hopefully it appears that I have some semblance of style). I
like love J.Crew, Anthropologie, Zara. My style is kind of prep, kind of girlie, kind of tomboy, mostly work-appropriate. I live in the SE, have a sweet fiance and sweet sweet pup. I like traveling - except for the traveling part. I luurrrvvve to eat. I don't know nuthin' 'bout tweetin'.
What I hope also comes across in my blog? That I am quirky, have a wacky wry sense of humor, enjoy keeping things light. That I am quick-witted, well-read, mildly sophisticated but not stuffy, keep up on pop culture and current events but are not consumed by them. That I have heightened intelligence snort, don't take things too seriously and like having a good ole time.
Things about me that I don't think any of you would guess about me from my blog? I used to be a big comic book reader, specifically the X-Men series, and I have a huge collection of poly-bagged books at my parents' home - I was totally a collector for a while. I may post pictures of myself wearing pretty outfits online, but I still battle major self-image issues. Despite what my Pinterest boards show, I can't decorate my house to save my life - I have no theme, no style, no idea what does or doesn't go together. Though I've yet - knock on wood - to seriously bust my ass in high heels, I still feel like a tottering newborn giraffe in anything over three inches.
And I know, I know, we really only get to know about > this < much about someone from their blog, and technically we only know what a blogger wants us to know, so what do we really know, you know? But I think as readers it is natural to make assumptions about a person from what we get to see - i.e., Lisa really really likes clothes. And stripes. Definitely stripes.
If you are a blogger, what do you think your blog says about you? What is something about you that you don't think any of your readers would ever guess about you?
