When blogging should you divulge your real name, and location?

I think its fine when your blogging ventures are only seen by those who know you, but should you post your personal image for the world to see?  Do you know who is following you?  Are we secure and safe?

I link this with other social networks that are used by criminals to target and track a persons whereabouts. 

Would you walk into the center of the town with a placard hoisted above your head stating “My House is empty for the next 2 weeks as Im holidaying In Spain!”, I doubt anyone would do that,  but for some reason we cant wait to post on Facebook  that we are off on a jaunt and even add the dates and location,  some even are so addicted to these networks, they post live-time pictures and news feeds of themselves boarding the plane, the view out of the window,  and the apartment that will be there home for the duration. 

Im not saying we shouldn’t tell the world of our great adventures, but maybe wait until we are home. 

In my job its hard to hide your identity sometimes, and you have to have trust with those you meet. But while we become virtual best friends with strangers who we only encounter from a screen and keyboard, will we lower or guard in real life. 

Its quite a balancing act becoming a virtual friend without encouraging ‘something more’ ,  High School Reunions via social networks have been blamed for many divorces or affairs.  Is this just a rekindling of your youth and the spark you had as a teenager,  or do we really grow out of relationships and need something new?

I know I am still guarded, and still very happy at home.  I dont think I will ever be interested in a cyber Romance,  I prefer the real thing with the person Im with.

help with wordpress

I know i dont have any followers yet, but hopefully soon,  in the meantime if you read my blogs would very much appreciate some help!  am new to wordpress and dont have much time to fill in the gaps just yet.

please feel free to help me construct my cyber voice! 🙂

OK,  so as a food writers researcher – I really do have to work hard to day, firstly, as soon as our PA arrives so the phones are covered – I have to leave the office and drive over to a farmers market to ‘test some produce’,  have been promised some extra tasty uk tomatoes!

After making notes, taking photographs, obtaining contact details, and have many ‘taste tests’ (all part of the job!)  am then being whisked away to sample a taste menu from a new refurbished Old English style pub.    The new chefs speciality is —— puddings!!!

I have such a hard job, thankfully its Friday so my bloated full tummy can have an early night and a lie in tomorrow before i have to put on the trainers to run off today’s pleasurable s!

I’m not really new to blogging,  I have read and followed quite a few,  but, I’m now determined to venture out into the wild word, and hopefully resolve some issues that bug my brain.  I’ve always been a strong believer in the phrase “a problem shared is a problem halved”.    Wise words from another person can help point out the good the bad, the flaws and the perfections – those things that you might overlook in the heat of the moment.

I do, or did, have a different media of blogging, and stumbled across wordpress  the other day purely from catching up with a work colleague who is a very very keen blogger! You know who you are!!!  and if your reading this between the hours of 10-4, shouldn’t you be working on that pile of reviews I left on your desk!

I’ve chosen a simple format to blog with,  not sure if I will advance to uploading pictures or images.  Think I’m probably better off just typing to get my point across.

Work is a varied and long day, so not sure when I will be able to do this, but my faithful little laptop is always near and hopefully when travelling on trains, instead of staring at rolling countryside and falling asleep hypnotically – I can keep myself awake by putting the world to rights!
