I felt something similar when I became a bit too open on certain blogs -- many of which became, as the Japanese like to term defunct blogs, "little pebbles" because of my being uncomfortable with that openness. But the effect of these confessions was an increased sense of community.

I tried so hard for so long to compose even the most outwardly mundane entry or update as if I were writing a political allegory in need of passing a totalitarian censor. Sometimes that approach resulted in posts that had a powerful undertow even outsiders -- as in, not one of the very few people who really grasped what I was going on about -- could perceive, but more often than not I shut myself off from all support by being so oblique.
