When I began blogging, I didn't care who knew. Family, in-laws, friends, acquaintances, anybody was welcome to have a look. Anyone that I had semi-regular contact with eventually found out - instead of regularly sending e-mail updates and photos of WonderBaby, I could simply direct people to the blog and be done with the extra correspondence (which I famously suck at). So I did. You wanna know how WonderBaby is? Check out my blog. Come one, come all.
But as blogging became a greater part of my life, and the process of writing became increasingly purgative, I began straining against the limitations imposed by my original open-door policy. I wanted to write - vent - about my frustrations with certain people in my life, but couldn't do so, because of the possibility that they would come across such rants in the blog.
So I decided to start a semi-secret blog. I say semi-secret because I intend for it to be open to the blogging community - I will mention it in comments, when relevant, and will be happy if other bloggers link to it. I'll probably keep it listed in my profile, as well. This may be courting disaster, but hey. I live on the edge.
My first order of business will be to un-un-rant the Un-Rant, the subject of which I couldn't reveal and which tormented me so for a few days a while back. Stay tuned.
