I had quite an upsetting day yesterday. Firstly a pupil was absolutely vile to me and ended the encounter by telling me to ‘Go f**k [my]self.” Shortly after this my co-librarian upset me by telling me that I had upset her!
I haven’t mentioned my co-librarian previously because I see this blog as about my journey into librarianship and, well, I don’t think it would be polite to blog about someone else; akin to talking behind someone’s back. I mentioned my blog to her as I am hoping to use it as evidence for a qualification which we are both doing. She expressed an interest in reading it and I said no. My reasons behind this are that I don’t want anyone who knows me to read my blog! Primarily, I intend to blog about life in the library but there may be times, like today, when I want to share personal feelings and I don’t want to have to filter myself in what is, essentially, my online diary.
I’d appreciate any comments on this, was I wrong to tell her I want my blog to be private? Do you share your blogs with friends and colleagues? Until next time.
