I realised that I seem to be in the minority online. I have a blog, I’m on Twitter, but when it comes to sharing information or posting up pictures, I’m not the girl to turn to. You won’t find a picture of my full face on the blog, my profile picture on Twitter is my Makeup Monster cartoon. I don’t use Facebook, I find the endless array of selfies on Instagram frankly a little cringe-worthy sometimes and I tend to keep myself to myself in the online world. But am I a hermit?
No not at all, well I don’t think so at least. I’m a normal, outgoing girl and I don’t look too shabby, I just really don’t like putting up personal information online. I know I’m in the vast minority when it comes to blogging or social media and I know most readers prefer to see a full face in reviews, I certainly do, but I just won’t do it. The Sunday Girl is the only other blogger I can think of off the top of my head that also doesn’t put her face up online really and she’s done very well for herself but sometimes I feel it’s to my detriment. There’s nothing wrong with me so it’s not that I’m shy or not confident, I just don’t want my full face forever online roaming around Google.
Not being on Facebook is probably another of the times where I fall into the online abyss although my fiance and I decided together to not join when it first came around and at this stage, we’re both glad we ignored it. I know it’s a great tool for far away friends but the rumours of people always trying to outdo each other with updates or stalking people on it is enough to make me not be arsed. In truth I find Twitter fun and informative but I never would’ve created an account if I didn’t have a blog to be honest. But it has been a great tool for connecting with other bloggers and I love the interaction I get through my blog.
But am I alone out there? Are you a modern girl on every type of social media posting images and information to the world and proud of it or like me do you like to keep more to yourself? Or more importantly have you ever regretted sharing information online or do you get fed up with seeing other people overshare?
