The Secret Diary
Blogs are funny things. Mine has motivated me to keep a journal for about a year and a half now, and I even find myself writing about things that happened years ago, before I had a blog. Why? I guess the blog is more visual than a diary. I find myself uploading photos as I write about events… searching for amusing clipart online to illustrate a learbing point I want to make. And I am motivated because I have an audience. Fellow students read my Academic posts, fellow sailors read my Sailing posts, and sometimes friends and family read my Life posts.
But what if I want to post my personal thoughts? Like how I feel about the person who upset me? Or my feelings about this horrible fertility treatment that makes me hate everyone and everything at times? Well, this is MY diary, so I will post what I want. But, thanks to my in-laws, I have learnt a valuable lesson about what people want to hear… and if I think people might not want to hear stuff, then I’ll keep it private. Here, in my secret diary!
Edit: Publishing one visible post has, indeed, made it possible for me to see the Secret Diary Category once again!!! But the rest of the entries in this category WILL remain private!
