    Hi Sevda and thanks for your brave post! I think all of us, deep down feel more comfortable when we are among our friends and family, sharing our thoughts with them; perhaps due to the fact that we are certain that even when they are in sharp contrast with us, they know who we are and would not judge us. However, I think more and more I blog I feel more comfortable of being judged by strangers! It is very helpful for my writing skill and even before that, expressing skills! Usually our close circle of people understand us, no matter how tired/lazy/clumsy we talk, but even those dear ones might misunderstand us when it comes to written words! My point is, although blogging seems an strenuous choir, it genuinely forces us to be as clear as possible, not merely in our writing but also in how we think and the way we convey those thoughts!

    I totally agree. I still feel uncomfortable to share my personal life or thoughts in my blog. And another thing is that many of our believes and opinions may change over time, and sometimes it is really funny when you flash back and read your earlier posts!

      Finding the a “voice” you are comfortable with for blogging can be tough! Thank-you, Sevda, for being brave and honest about this. It might help to think about an audience that isn’t personal — or imagine that you want to convey your thoughts on a particular subject to anyone who might be interested in them, and then think of what you write as being informal but professional communication?

    Thanks for your post! I too am not the most comfortable blogging, but it has become easier the longer I do it. I think that writing, explaining, posting, and sometimes defending our beliefs and discoveries in a public forums helps us think things through a little more, possibly from new perspectives, and in the end, I think helps us gain confidence in those beliefs because we realize that we really do know some things and that we really are qualified and capable of standing by them under public scrutiny. Haha, which doesn’t mean I’m good at blogging but at least there’s hope that we can all become more comfortable in doing it. Thanks again!
