As a blogger, you may have asked yourself just how personal you want to get when it comes to your blog. Do you want people to know a little or a lot about you? Do you want to disclose personal information to the readers who visit your blog?

All of these questions are important to ask if you are a blog owner; in determining just how personal you want to get on your blog, consider two critical points.

The two questions are:

  1. What is the purpose of your blog?
  2. What do you feel comfortable with?
