I’ve found it difficult to find a place to really say what I want to say without consequences. As we all know, if you really don’t want someone to hear or read what you REALLY think, you DON’T say or write it, especially on a public forum such as a blog. Even if you say “keep this blog private” there is no guarantee that will actually happen. The intelligent person knows to just not write it, or if it really needs to be said, vent to a gossip monger and later deny that you called your friend of 15 years “a trashy little slut” because of the information bringer’s bad reputation. Are pen and paper journals hidden under the mattress really more secure than a blog? Whodathunkit!
