I was so embarrassed that i wrote an email to the webmaster asking him if he would take it off.
I wrote you an email after discovering (almost fell off my chair!) the link to my blog on the website.
I wrote that although i know it is in the www domain and available for anyone who knows where to look i felt embarrassed to share it with people that know me more personally.I feel sharing with an audience of fellow bloggers less threatening and a nice way to express my small triumphs and failures amongst this supportive audience.
I actually wrote a page long email but i must have stuffed up sending it.In it i just explained why i took this position.I know that i could provide some small inspiration for others and maybe even the occasional laugh but im not ready to share to a wider audience at this stage.
To which he replied:
Thanks A - my apologies - I should have asked your permission first - I certainly understand your position. My thoughts were "this is terrific, really inspirational, and certainly the type of thing that so many of our members will get something from - just one member sharing his joys at running, his struggles, his triumphs ..." - I hope one day you will email me to ask to have it put back on ... the first of many KJ Member Blogs ... ... hope to see you at the race today. Regards, B
The link was up for probably only a day and i'm not sure how many people saw it,but the one person who i asked had seen it and thought that i put it on the website!
I am not upset with the webmaster at all because after all it is out there, though like a small town newspaper not everyone wants to read this stuff and being a newer member of a 500+ strong club it unsettles me a little.
I have a question...am i being a little sissy about this whole thing?
