*disclaimer- this post is brought to you by three shared bottles of wine :) (yes, i wrote it sunday night)
before i jump into this, let me see a show of hands of all the peeps out there that love some j.law. sure, she hasn't done anything noteworthy lately, but damn, she is so relateable.
anyways, i was reading a post by whitney the other day, and something dawned on me... i haven't the faintest idea of who actually reads my blog. sure. i know that my mom and my bestie read it on an almost daily basis, and i have an idea of who is following via bloglovin, gfc, and social media (btw, i love each and every one of you!), but i don't really know who is reading what i write. and that's a little scary.
i guess it actually comes with the job, though. i mean, here i am, enjoying the fact that i am broadcasting my deepest, darkest fears, happy wants & dreams, and thoughts & feelings for whoever wants to read and actually getting off on their comments (thank the heavens that they are happy comments). shit, all i have to do is talk about the complete clusterfuck that is my head right, now, and i may just wind up in the nut house right next to whitney. sorry- that's for another post.
what i'm getting at, is that we bloggers put ourselves out there, knowingly. we know that unless the blog is private, whatever we write and publish is public. public knowledge. and we are ok with that. yeah, book me in nut house room 39, and is there anyway that i can get a massage on admittance?
but my question is... can what i write affect my chance of obtaining gainful employment? i mean, you guys only know me as tabitha r or tl_tinywishes, right? and if you google me, i really think you will find a lot of results- 13 million to be exact- and that's awesome! for reals.
back to my question- since i have the anonymity going for me, i don't tell interviewers that i have a blog, and i'm not talking about the "shittier parts" of my life, can having a blog actually affect my chance of getting that big girl job? cause i hope the hell not.
and i really hope no ex-friends or ex-boyfriends read my corner of the dot.com world, cause that would just be super awkward when i use them for a laugh... right whit?
but then again... que sera sera.
