To wibble or not to wibble


Gah. I just can't write here anymore. Every time I think of telling the Internets of my crazy, WAHOO, wibble wibble, DRICK!!!! day-to-day existence, I realize that locals have begun reading and feel completely inhibited.

Hmm...

New blog or make this one private? What think you, citizens of the Interwebs?

It depends on how sensitive your neighbours might be. But you're hardly gossiping about them, are you?

Perhaps a name change will throw them off the scent.

You gossip about the neighbours? How did I miss that post?

Or did you mean the Merkans?

I'd go private.

This is always a tough one, one I've struggled with myself.

If you go private, be sure to send me an invite?

I can appreciate your situation. With me, it was my mater who made blog entries increasingly difficult. Actually, it wasn't her, but the image of her looking over my shoulder at the keyboard which deflated my blogging balloon, as it were.

That, and blogging became far too much like work, where I have to sparkle and shine all the time.

Anyways, if you continue to blog, I will reciprocate by coming out of my den for the occasional sortie into the public eye.

You could just make it all up. Blog about being a pirate ( Arrrrh! ) or a test pilot for the Canadian Space Agency.

p.s. Nanuk - she was just sick of hosing the leftover fish out of the keyboard.

Depends on what you think could fuel your passion again. A private blog allows a rant, a crow, a regret without everyone being able to look in. Coming soon to my blog, following the amazing success of the ANZAC day rant, and the Manglish spouted on a regular basis by my husband: My bastard neighbours, my beloved dog, more on not fitting in and many other delights. When I can fit it in when not working, that is. And I can rant about the bastard neighbours all I want because they will never find it, even if they google 'Savage Attack Dog That We Won't Get Rid of Because We Know Best'.

PN because I can't log in here at work.

I'd like to say that I'm with the Duck.

I'd like to say that, but I can't. There are blog posts I have not written because of who might see it. The person mentioned or someone that knows them and could figure out who I was referring to.

I guess all I can say is that we, or at least I will support whatever decision you make.

Well, as I went private a number of years ago with my personal blog, I can say that it has continuously been a great way to vent and talk about the things that matter to me. On LJ I use filters to let some people see and others not (for example, my parents have access to most of my blog but neither they nor I wants them to be reading about my sex life). I do have a public blog as well that I basically ask myself, "Would I care if an acrimonious ex-friend or -boyfriend found this blog?" If not, then it's safe to post whatever I want to post about there.

If you do decide to go private or to split public/private posts, I would greatly appreciate an invite!

Of course I know that. I'm not stupid. But this is MY crazy, WAHOO, wibble wibble, DRICK!!! day-to-day existence and that makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE.

oh, good luck! blog whatever and however you want. have you read whoopee?? she pretty much writes anything she wants, and she might describe her life as crazy wahoo wibble wibble....

i've tried private blogging, but even i don't read it...if i want to vent on anything, i do it in my journal.

but you do have a great blog...it's not easy to write every day or even frequently. do what you want.

I get this all the time. I've lost count how many blogs I've started and later deleted when I realised people were actually reading them.

Only with me it wasn't so much just people I know as, well, pretty much anyone. Getting comments is terrifying (so sorry to be doing this to you); but the weird thing is I always start the blog fully intending for people to read it, because frankly what's the point otherwise? (Except that I couldn't write stuff in a diary and keep it in the house because if I ever die and get eaten by alsatians someone might find it in the house and read it.)

I am probably mad...

My blogs (if you can call them that) are very generic and don't identify much of anything.

There's a catch-phrase for the woman who revealed too much and lost her job over it. Forgot it by now. She's a rich woman living in Paris, now, though....so depends where you want to go with your blogging ;-)

That would be Petite Anglaise. And prior to her, Dooce. I dont' think I've got anything on my blog that would get me fired. I have never blogged about work.

Thank you all for the support! As you can see, I'm still limping along here. I have a show that closes tomorrow night that has kept me too busy to blog. We'll see what happens once that wraps.
