There are times that I blog about things going on in my guild. I never use specific names, but it would be clear to anyone in the guild what I was talking about.
I have never told anyone in my guild that I have a WoW blog. My family knows, of course. There is at least one former member of the guild who knows about it, but she’s on a different server now.
Should I let them know? Does it even matter?
There have been times when we were all in Vent chatting about a topic, and I wanted to blurt out, “I did a post on that!” But then by leading them to the blog they can go back and read everything else I have posted.
I am concerned that by opening up the blog to my guild, I it might be awkward to post about guild goings-on. I remember reading someone else blog about how their guild-related posts had created some hard feelings within the guild. I wouldn’t want that to happen.
I suppose that it is possible that some of them already know about it, but have never said anything.
Its also possible that they wouldn’t even care. A lot of them are casual enough that they don’t spend a lot of time outside the game reading blogs and other WoW web sites.
What do you think?
