Or at least more that people other than me can understand. . .

Yes, I do think I'll be doing this kind of writing for a bit. I need to rebuild my "Friends" list with new folks somehow, so I have at least a chance of getting decent feedback aside from you and a few other stalwarts. But I have also concluded -- during my middle-of-the-night bike ride a little while ago -- that I need this personal writing to be "Friends Only", at least for a while.

Yesterday, the 26th, was both Skylar's birthday and our official wedding anniversary -- we got married two years before she was born -- although we used to celebrate the 30th as our "real" anniversary, since that was the night we met. And the 31st, too, since that was the early morning when we first had sex. Anyway, it's a fraught week in this household.

nothing wrong with friends only - i have a secret filter on top of that, as well. my non locked stuff goes through to fb, where there are all sorts of people i am 'friended' to - which gives lie to the notion of 'friends' over there... i might let quite personal stuff go all the way through, but only things i don't feel vulnerable or unthought out about. anything still in process gets locked, and also if i want to talk about someone else.

good luck with your new project! and my sympathies for your predicament.

Thanks. I'm still not sure about the "Friends-only" thing. I long ago vowed to make almost everything public. But I really don't want my Facebook friends reading this stuff with impunity. Or, above else, my sister, for obvious reasons.

i started blogging with the idea that everything should be open, but if internet is people, and we sometimes want to talk to some people about something and not others, then locking is the way forward. you may find it liberating.
