I have worries about my blog. I feel paranoid that one day, the wrong person is going to read it, interpret it wrong, and get me in trouble.
And usually I would listen to my common sense and switch this blog to private, but I can't. Because it would then be exactly like a diary, and then I would stop posting because I don't like diaries. I know, I'm a bit contradictory.
A long time ago, before I ever knew what blogger was, I was writing and sharing my thoughts on Xanga (oh the horror), and Myspace, and I found that I wasn't satisfied. I needed something that fit my needs even more. Something that's first priority was writing, or blogging. It's a wonder that I didn't stumble upon Livejournal first, but I'm glad I didn't.
Every time I've said something less than nice about people that didn't know I had a blog, I've used discretion, and in hindsight the choices I made back then weren't bad.
With the media attacking bloggers right now, and people also outing bloggers I feel even more paranoid than I was in the first place. But whatever. I've come to the conclusion that nothing in my blog can harm me.
I feel sorry for those who have been outed, and have been forced to go private, or stop blogging. The people who were malicious enough to do that have no life.
