Writing an overshare blog can be a great way to express yourself and share your thoughts with the world. It can also be a great way to connect with like-minded people and build relationships.
It is easy to wonder who would be interested in the mundane everyday details of another person’s life (Usually a stranger) and the question is valid, but I think there is a little tendency toward a certain degree of mental voyeurism in all of us — and thus the idea of “Oversharing on a blog.”
Overshare blogs are becoming increasingly popular as more people are turning to the internet for self-expression. Writing an overshare blog is not only about sharing your thoughts, but also about connecting with others who have similar experiences or interests. It’s a great way to create meaningful conversations and build relationships online.
Writing an overshare blog requires creativity, vulnerability, and courage. You need to be willing to open up and share your thoughts in order for it to be successful. With the right approach, you can create a powerful platform that will help you reach out to others and make meaningful connections.
Cons Of Oversharing
Writing overshares can be a double-edged sword. While it can be a great way to express yourself and connect with your readers, it can also have some serious drawbacks. Oversharing can lead to feelings of vulnerability, embarrassment, and even regret. It can also make you appear unprofessional or immature in your readers’ eyes. Additionally, writing overshares may lead to unwanted attention from strangers or even stalkers. Therefore, it is important to consider the potential disadvantages before deciding whether or not to write an overshare.
History of Overshare Blogging
The history of overshare blogging dates back to the early 2000s when bloggers started sharing their personal stories and experience online. This type of blogging was a way for people to express themselves and connect with others who shared similar interests.
Overshare blogging has become increasingly popular over the years, as more people have taken to writing about their lives on blogs and social media platforms. Bloggers have used this platform to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences with the world in an open and honest way.
This type of writing has allowed bloggers to create meaningful connections with readers by providing them with an insight into their lives that they wouldn’t otherwise get from traditional media outlets. It has also given readers a chance to relate to the blogger’s story in some way, which can be incredibly powerful.
Things To Avoid Sharing When Oversharing
There are some things that are better left undisclosed when you are writing an overshare blog.
I never share the real names of any of my friends, relatives or associates when writing overshares.
I never give out my bank’s name or anything else connected to my banking habits.

I write about my everyday life with Ollie and my family, so I suppose I am ‘oversharing’. So far, it has never been an issue, and I have been doing it for over 10 years. I would never discuss banking details, I don’t even use Internet Banking. Too many potential scams for my liking.
Best wishes, Pete.
I’m rather cautious about giving out any personal details. I never name names, I call my eldest and youngest sons ES or YS, my wife is MrsGF. I try to keep a wall between on-line and real life for a variety of reasons.
