“[I] find myself, for instance, if I’ve posted something about work (rehearsals, say) not referring to it to the people I’m working with. Why?”
I’m much the same - it’s almost as if I don’t want them to find I’ve been writing about them. Even though, like you, I only write what I’d say to someone’s face (having learned from previous painful mistakes). It somehow feels as if I’m talking behind peoples’ backs, albeit without saying anything bad. It still feels slightly rude of me.
I also feel slightly embarrassed to admit to acting friends that I have a “blog”. While it’s the norm among my many geeky friends it still feels too nerdy to openly acknowledge to non-geeks, as if it’s an admission of having no better way to spend my time than writing about my life (or tiny sanitised fragments of it) in public.
