Blogging and over-sharing

This is a thought provoking post, published on the Blog Herald. In it the author asks whether it is possible to "over share" on your Blog. The answer is a resounding yes as they link to a post which advises caution over how much personal information you share.

This is a difficult area as the Blog Herald suggests, people like personality, if we all wrote in the same style it would be a very boring world and blogging is about collaboration or including your readers, hence why comments are so valuable and should be encouraged, but there does need to be a balance between writing professionally and personally.

As an aside I'm currently thinking about changing the name of my blog to "The Running Librarian" one because I run and and two because I'm a Librarian, thats two pieces or personal information right there!
