So now that I’ve posted something a little more personal and honest (not that I’m lying to you guys on here, but I’m more hesitant to talk about things I feel this strongly about unless I’m really angry or think I’ll get a helpful response), I feel a little embarrassed, thinking about people actually reading it. A while back I saw a similar comment, with someone asking if anyone else tended to quick add a few more trivial posts to push the personal one down the page. So I think this is a common problem in blogging unless you never talk about anything personal ever (which would completely defeat the point of me having a blog, IMO).
But honestly, while the internet is wide-open and public, who am I worried about seeing these things? My mother? My boss? (Hi.) Random strangers I will never meet? The person I quoted? (Given that I really like her blog, I hope this wouldn’t be an issue.) The worst that could happen is that I lose my job, no one in the local tech community will talk to me, and people start writing nasty letters to the editor. Right? Okay, I’m done now.
