Is Over-Sharing On A Blog A Good Idea?

First of all, we need to know what “Oversharing” is, don’t we?

Here is what the dictionary has to say about it: “the disclosure of an inappropriate amount of detail about one’s personal life. “Oversharing has become commonplace thanks to social media.”

I know that oversharing has become commonplace on social media because I looked at a blog this morning that specializes in oversharing and that blogger has gotten over One Billion views in the last decade.

Some people say that oversharing can be dangerous because it can reveal information about a person that would be helpful to criminals …. people who would like to steal personal identities for example.

I have another idea about oversharing.  What is my idea about oversharing?  Here is my idea about oversharing:  If a person is as clever as I am … and I am damned clever if you want my opinion, If a person is as creative and clever as I am then that person could lie a lot about himself or herself and who would know whether the oversharing person is telling the truth or not?

This brings up a valid question about myself:  “Am I really who I appear to be on “Liming’s Links” or am I a fictional character, completely made up for my own pleasure and for the entertainment of my blog audience?”  I don’t think that even I know the answer to that question.  Am I a silly old pauper without the proverbial pot to piss in or am I an extremely wealthy old eccentric with nothing better to do than to mess with other people’s heads by writing a blog filled with fantasies and lies?  The fact is, it doesn’t matter.  I am who I am and there are people who say they like me and that satisfies me a lot.  Thank you to my millions of adoring fans. LOL. You are welcome to get into my head through my blog posts but I do not allow anybody to get into my pants anymore.  Sorry about that.

Damn!  As good looking as I am, I just may have alienated thousands of avid followers.

  1. I suppose I have overshared for many years. I even posted my home address so that bloggers could send me postcards or letters. But I don’t really care, as I am old enough not to bother if anyone shows up at the house.
    Best wishes, Pete.
