It’s a weird concept to be so aware of who can access the content you post online, and it’s not really something I’ve fallen victim to much in the past – on this blog at least. It’s definitely restricting. You can’t necessarily express yourself entirely in the way that you want to because you don’t know who might be reading what you write or how they might interpret that. I’m finding it a lot in regards to a recent project of mine, where I’m aware more so than ever of my views and how my own opinions might offend people or how they might be perceived differently to how I intended.
It’s easy enough on a blog like this to write something and discuss it in the comments, with people who agree and people who disagree, and not really face the consequences of it, but when you’re publishing your opinion in something that you can’t just walk away from; something that reputation does matter in regards to, I find that much more challenging.
