On losing my anonymity

It’s been long… not that I didn’t have anything to say… I do. I do- all then time. But slowly a fear has crept in… of being known. My anonymity goes down the drain with just the url of my blog : poornimavijayan.blogspot.com

And suddenly I am read. By people I don’t know and by people I know. A paltry few… but nevertheless….

But then, haven’t I but shouted from rooftops all I do and when I do? Is there any part of me that is unknown to people who know me? No….

Then why this fear…?

Of losing my privacy I guess. My ‘personal space’ on the wide world of the internet. Of once again being heard… of once again being found interesting… of once again having to entertain… of once again running a race in the need not to disappoint…. Of having to disappoint...once again.

Bingo! Guess we should have so many things in common. Just as I finished my post today, I saw your comment on my post yesterday and was wondering who this is. I come to your page and find your latest post's subject same as that of mine. Strange!

People bitch about losing their anonymity and then get insulted when someone doesn't recognize them from whatever success they've had.
