Sometimes its not always your fault, but chances are if you have had a drinking or drug use problem, addiction will be to blame, not your blogging. Your loss of friends is your fault, either behaviorally or emotionally, you were not there for them, and as a result, of your problem, you lost friends. Losing friends can take its toll, it has been said that, “Dealing with bad friends, getting dumped by them, and feeling disappointed with them is a stressful part of life, and it can harm your body and mind.”  Which is all the more reason to be a good friend, stay sober, and get your life back on track. Jim Rohn, once said, “"You're the average of the five people you spend the most time with."  If that’s true, then what does your behavior say about you? Are you representing your friends well, or are you only putting yourself out there online to benefit yourself. Is it to get more job prospects, what is blogging really about. Have meaning and purpose, whenever you begin any new endeavor, and never lose tact, don’t discuss too much personal information, and certainly don’t talk about those in your life, who you may love, miss, cherish, or hold high, its likely they will be insulted if mentioned. Keep things general when you write online. And if you do have a resentment, be sure not to share those resentments out loud, because if it does get back to them, chances are it will be even more difficult to resume those relationships later in life. Its important to note that, “adding more content doesn’t help you get more readers.”  You may think that the more personal you get with your audience, the more connected to them they would feel, but it’s the exact opposite, not only do you make your audience uncomfortable sharing personal details about your life, but you also run the risk of making those close to you feel uncomfortable that your sharing so many personal details about your life online. Know when to stop, content creation is a learning process.
