Getting outed as a Blogger


Most of my real world friends and acquaintances don’t know about Reactuate. My best friend knows but he doesn’t read it.

TOTAL ASIDE:You know every time I call him my best friend I feel a little guilty. The Mrs. is just as close or closer to me. I don’t have any secrets from her, but he gets labeled best friend because that’s what he’s been since I was a teenager.

As I wrote in one of those posts I haven’t posted, I’ll deal with it when I get outed. Someday someone will find my blog I didn’t want to. Maybe someone from church. Or a relative. Maybe my mom.

Here is a blog where the author got found out by people she had blogged about and how it effected their relationships. And how she now has to change the blog.

    As my mom always told me (as her mom always told her) never put anything in writing that you wouldn’t want published in the paper. The internet is even worse because nothing ever really goes away (unless it’s a web page you were looking at five minutes ago and want to look at again). Check the wayback machine…

    I still find usenet posts I made in 1995 popping up in search results from time to time. While my blog is very useful to me, I don’t put anything online that would be damaging to me or the people I love.

    That’s what private diaries are for. =)

    This blog that was outed wasn’t findable for me.

    Safari just kept saying it wasn’t there.
