How Authentic Should Bloggers Be?

How authentic are you? Do you portray yourself online in a certain way so people will think you have it all together? Or are you hiding your real self behind a mask?

Blogging has opened up a new world for me. I've made so many online friends. My 'real life' friends don't always understand. But when you read someone's posts for a time you get a glimpse into their heart. And friendships form. I've had the pleasure of meeting many of my blogging friends in person and I have to say I've never been disappointed.

There are bloggers who pour out all their troubles for all to see. As a Christian, I always want to be aware of the words I write. I never write anything about my husband unless we've discussed it together. If I chose to write something personal about myself, that's one thing. But I do think we need to be careful when what we write involves another person.

Blessings and love,
