If you blog, do you reveal on your blog that you’re traveling? I spent most of last week in Palo Alto and most of the week before in Germany. But my parents impressed upon me when I was little that when you were home alone, and someone called and asked for your mom or dad, you weren’t supposed to say they weren’t home, but instead that they “couldn’t come to the phone.” Because if you revealed to unknown persons that the grown-ups weren’t around, they might come over and rob your house. So I don’t actually think it’s likely that blog readers will come rob my house (if you are planning to, please try to clear off some bookshelf space) but I’ve retained this superstition that you shouldn’t let it be publicly known that you’re away. Am I being weird here?
