But throughout the weekend, I made a conscious effort to leave my camera at home and not tweet/instagram everything I did or thought (Golden Globes commentary not withstanding) and just simply enjoy life without telling a bunch of people who probably don't even really care about it.
I think that most ~bloggers (/anyone on the internet) has struggled at some point with how much of their lives to share publicly.
Part of the reason I love blogging and social media is that it gives me a super easy way of documenting things that happen through the course of life, so that I always have a way of looking back and reminiscing later. But always sharing the details of life and documenting everything can get a little tiring and quite frankly, kind of annoying.
Sometimes documentation makes certain events even more fun, and I'm not going to pretend like I don't love instagramming stuff, but I think there has to be some kind of balance. I don't want to spend my entire life behind a camera just so I have something to blog about.
Now let's be honest, there's nothing that juicy happening in my life. So this post isn't about my internal battle about sharing some deep struggle I'm dealing with. But I know some that have dealt with this type of situation. I'm mainly just talking about the day-to-day stuff: what should I share about my life? What would I rather keep to myself? And who cares about it anyway?
So I guess I'll just blog whatever I feel like blogging, tweet what I feel like tweeting, take pictures when I feel like taking pictures, and not stress about it the rest of the time. I'm sure there has to be some better method than that, but that's the best I can come up with.
How do you deal with balancing sharing vs. over-sharing?
