Comments: Big man ... behind a keyboard

Your point about assuming publicity is interesting. When I started blogging with Travelog, I pretty much decided I would actually push the details out there, warts and all, and to hell with the comeback.

I'd say for me, the shift wasn't in what I revealed, but what I remained aware I was hiding. It was a good opportunity to size up what I felt important to hide, and think about why I felt it important. The result was that I only hid things when I wanted to protect the kids I was teaching from learning too much about the real me, mainly related to my drink and drug intake.

Having a junior high school student ask what fake drugs are was certainly a sobering moment.
