Good answer. I haven't written anything political, but I can see where it might spoil the dinner conversation.
Wow. I wonder if there are folks on here that I know? My parents would be mortified they might be mentioned in something.
It's nice to have some encouragement and I understand the need not to tell your friend.
Thanks Fatfreddy. My daughter gets annoyed when dinner is ready at the normal time. That's the extent of her interest.
It's fun to get a reaction, but so far only my husband and my daughter know I do this.
Interesting. Only my husband and my daughter know that I do.
I think you are right about making money and people getting more interested!
Interesting. Not sure if I agree with being worried if people like what I write, maybe that anonymity helps with the creative process. Good answer and thoughtful.
I like the idea of sharing things. Don't know any hubbers in "real life".
I totally understand.
I like that you do it for yourself!
I am like duffsmom, I don't really share unless they happen to see my posts on FB, Pin Interest, etc. I don't know how much they would really be interested and don't know if I want them to be yet. I am still wet behind the ears.
My brother will occasionally read one of my Hubs but aside from him nobody in my family is particularly interested in the geeky junk I write about...
I like being able to write anonymously, but my husband and daughter know.
I think it's been a nice way to get some thoughts off of my chest with a little anonymity.
I can understand not keeping secrets. I just don't mention it to anyone.
Well at least this way you can write stuff that you don't want them to see. Thanks.
It's nice that your family supports what you do.
I've thought about telling a few friends, but am still to shy to do that yet. Maybe one day.
Interesting. My guess is that if I ever told anyone besides my immediate family they'd be more interested in their own pursuits too.
I definitely understand the need for privacy when writing.
Thanks kumar. I hope she likes what you write.
It's nice to get that encouragement.
It is nice to get some feedback before a hub gets published. Thanks for the comment.
Hopefully your hubs will take off and you can brag to your family!
