The Personal

Do you have competing interests online? Are you torn between passion and pragmatism, between the urge to express and activate on the one hand, and the fear of reprisal or fallout on the other? Bloggers often must manage the intersection of personal, business, and political while managing digital lives and businesses. Do you think you need to shy away from your perspectives on political and controversial cultural topics in order to maintain broad appeal among your readers, prospective clients/sponsors, or your peers–or do you feel the opposite: that who you are is everything you are? Cynthia Samuels moderates a conversation with some fine line-walkers: Deb Rox, Faiqa Khan, and Kelly Wickham.
