I started this blog in 2004. Over the course of the last seven years, a handful of people have discovered this blog, and then discovered that they really do know me.
"You're Blogget Jones" is not a phrase I hear very often in "real" life, but it has happened. A couple of friends from the past have read this and then sent me feedback privately. One other fella wanted to know why he wasn't included.
To my knowledge, no one I've actively written about has seen this blog. Well, until now.
He has said that what's here isn't important. It's my private business, and he trusts that I'll tell him about anything I write about, in any case. So, I don't know that he'll ever read this, but he might.
So...Dear Diary, wave hello to Jacob.
It was a heart-stopping moment when I realized he'd found it. A heart-stopping, kick-myself kind of moment. Two things had happened simultaneously:
He followed Blogget on Twitter....
...then tweeted an "oops" message.
I'd waited too long to explain Blogget to him. I've never wanted to reveal my secret identity to anyone, but this had been troubling me with Jacob. I wanted to tell him, but needed a chance to warn him first that Blogget's writings are sometimes unflattering to me. When I've done stupid things, I've written about them. I sometimes look (and feel) like an idiot.
And I'm sexually blunt. But I doubted that would bother him.
I also realized that others could find this blog so easily, too. I deleted Blogget's Twitter feed. That had been a stupid move on my part.
It's important that a few key people not read Blogget Jones's Diary. But Jacob is welcome to it, in all it's sometimes-embarrassing glory, should he decide to visit. I don't write anything he doesn't already know.
