"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

A rare regret

From the very beginning, I've blogged under my real name. In the beginning, even the family members who knew I blogged didn't have my url and weren't the types to go searching for it. For the first time since I gave family members the link to my blog, I'm regretting it. I have a rant I am dying to let out but it would create a shitstorm and it just isn't worth it Hmmmm, maybe this warrants a post over at Mushroom Printing? If you haven't checked out Mushroom Printing, you should.  Sometimes it's funny.  Sometimes it gasp inducing.  It is always entertaining.

Ugh! Sorry you can't vent here. Drop me a line if you just need to get it out.

Sorry you have something bothering you and can't get it out here :(

Ack! That's why I held on to anonymity as long as I could...and haven't still revealed my blog IRL at all....I have to have the space to say.

Can you make one post private? I ended up changing my URL for similar reasons...

Tillie said...

ugh I hate that...I had/have the same problem. Too many people know about my blog now that I know IRL. I think you can easily make a private/password protected post...

:( As anonymous as I tried to be at first, when I put my last name in my 'last' blog name, I knew it could draw people I know IRL, and that's a big reason why I changed it again to not include it. Sorry you can't vent here.. I know we don't talk outside of our blogs, but send me a note if you want to just write it out and hit "send".. ;)

I know how you feel. I regret having to censor myself on Facebook because I am "friends" with some people from the dark side :-) Thank goodness no one knows about my personal blog. Can't wait to vent today. Hope you get your chance.

I haven't updated this site in a long time, but I'd welcome your post that you can't share here as a restart to things. So many of us IF bloggers have things we can't share in our own space, so I created this 2 years ago for that exact purpose. Thanks for reminding me to dust off my typewriter :)

Can you not password protect your posts? If not, please let me in on the secret! I'm like Claree in Steel Magnolias: If you can't say something nice, come sit by me!

Sorry you can't vent. I know what you mean though. I've went back and forth a lot with letting people know about my blog. Hope things get better soon.
