Tokiko reminded me that I haven't said anything about: Yujiro discovering I am writing this blog about life with his mother.
Actually I was hoping if I forgot about it, it didn't happen.
But it did. He saw the open blog page on the computer the other day.
Yesterday I sent the link to it to his email address and left him a note on the computer telling him he was welcome to read it.
I don't know if he has or not.
Don't ask. Don't tell!!!!
I DO believe that there is nothing in this blog I am embarrassed for him to read. I started this blog last year as a way to tell friends and close students what the whole experience of my new life was like. It saved me endlessly writing emails and letters and having the same conversation with people. And it was a way for me to think-out my stresses by writing.
I don't write anything I wouldn't tell (and do tell) friends. So I don't think Yujiro would be shocked by anything here or feel I've made public any deep secrets.
I hope not anyway.
I've never done a blog before. And to be honest, I'd never read a blog before,.
I'd be interested to hear from other bloggers: what are the ethics of this? Did you tell the people you blog about that they are in a blog? Did you ask their permission?
How does it work?
