Does Blogging Change Your Personality?

Published October 22, 2017 by Nan Mykel

I used to be shy, even an Avoidant Personality, I think. Recently I’ve become one of those people who talk to strangers in public. (“Those shoes look comfortable.Where did you get them?”)  This afternoon while napping I had a long dream in which I talked to many strangers, both male and female.  When I woke up I was waiting for the right bus and  preparing myself to take an abandoned kitten home with me, to a place that I knew wouldn’t be too happy about that.

I know on one level I’m waiting for “Sweet Chariot” to take me home. On another level my tongue is getting looser, maybe an early warning of the “D” word.  Then it occurred to me that I have so few followers because I admit I’m over the hill.  So I’ve decided to try a much younger avatar. I’ve suspected some of my followers do that, so I thought I’d try.  My helper comes Monday night. Look for an avatar change Monday night, if she comes. (She got a bad thumb cut washing dishes. (That’ll show her!)

  • One of my avatars is four years old, from when I started this blog. The other one is two years old when I tried to change it. I dunno, I did somethin wrong, shouldn’t have two.
    Anyway, maybe unburdening yourself here in blogland has made you a lighter, friendlier person 🙂 Whatever the reason, no matter your age, it’s always better to have a good time!

  • This makes me laugh! I’m intrigued with your thesis – I certainly am a lot braver about speaking out – I wonder if it is because it is easy from behind the screen? I took someone’s head off the other day via text message, realised it is because I don’t have to face him and went out and stared him down just to feel better about myself – for not hiding. So I think you are right, blogging does make one loosen up a bit. And I think you’re far from the D-word. Don’t worry about it. It’s not going to happen to you.
