This week’s topic is ‘Do you use an online persona’, and honestly I do not really have much to say about this topic..
I feel like I’m the same online as I am in the ‘real’ world!
Personally I feel like it would be exhausting having to ‘be’ someone else online!
But then maybe you need to escape the real world and just want to be someone else?! In that case it might be nice to be whoever you want online?! As long as you’re not causing harm to anyone it should be fine haha!
The questions the hosts gave as example:
Why Do (or Don’t) you Blog About Your Personal Life on your Bookish Blog?
I do give small life updates in my weekly wrap ups, since I’m talking about my past week. But often they’re just small sentences, since I don’t feel like much interesting happens in my life haha! But when I moved abroad, which of course is a big life change, I did do a post about it. Just because I was excited about it and wanted to share my excitement hahah! I also did some posts about some vacations I went on! Again just because I wanted to share my excitement!
The main reason why I do not talk that much about my personal life is just because not that much interesting is happening haha.
Are there certain things you share and others you don’t?
I basically just answered this haha! I just share the things I think people might be interesting in reading (that are not bookish)!
To what extent, if any, do you try to separate your bookish online persona from what you do with the rest of your time?
Not haha. I mainly work, read and blog.. So there is not that much separation..! That sounds sad :p
I do do social things once in a while hahah
Do you think book blogs should focus on being book blogs and not veer into other territory?
Not at all! I’m a way too curious person! I love to read what people do besides reading! Like of course there should be book related things, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have come on that blog anyway, but I don’t think posts should be limited to books/reading!
