Does anyone else wonder what that one blog post would translate to if you were suddenly no longer around?
Honestly, I think this very thought about the emails I send and the blog posts I write. What will people think of me if they canvassed my writing and read that ONE POST?
You know, like that one post you wrote when you were upset or maybe even in an impaired state of mind. Or the post you composed when you first started your blog and you just knew NO ONE would ever see it. Let’s not forget the post you wrote about a topic that you were deeply passionate about; only to really you were also very ill-informed. Or maybe it’s the nonsensical post that was just for fun at the time of writing.
All of these posts will be read one day, some more closely than others. Depending on how it happens that you are no longer managing your blog, the post will be read differently.
Have you ever heard an investigator, anthropologist, historian, or even someone’s family member piece together someone’s identity based on written documents?
What image will people have of you based on your posts? Specifically, what image will they have if they only read that one post?
How much attention should we pay to the image we cultivate through our words? Are there certain times we should pay more attention to this sculpted image?
I have the slightest idea what someone would think of me by reading any of my posts…it really depends on which post they read. However, I know one thing that even if I posted everyday; the reader would only know what I wanted them to know in that moment.
Besides I am more than any of my attributes, and my attributes are great!
