I have a confession to make.
My mother doesn’t know about this site.
She’s just now finding her way around the Internet, so it’s probably only a matter of time before she finds me. I’ve even sent her and e-mail with the link in my signature, but either she hasn’t twigged on, or she’s too polite to mention it.
When I was back home in England this past May, I promised my friend that I would tell my mum about my blog, but even when she asked what I was working on, I chickened out. It’s like being 14 again and trying to pluck up the guts to tell her I’ve been invited to a party with a boy.
But I’m not 14; I’m 40, so why can’t I tell my own mother about something I’m really proud of—this website?
Do any of you suffer from being unable to talk about yourself, your work, or your childlessness, even to people you trust?
