Paper journals vs. blogging
Monday, August 19, 2013
So, I was an avid journaler. Think boxes of journals, going back to when I was 14 (I'm 47 now!) Locked up, since I seriously considered suicide if anyone ever read them. Journals that kept me sane, worked out my relationships in, fantasized about my crushes in, and kept me company when my closest friends moved away.
Can a blog compare? Of course, my journals were completely private, and while I don't expect the government to be following my every word or even others on this site to care what I have to say, it's not private.
But... the internet is anonymous, right? If anyone ever does read this, what are the chances they will ever know who I am in real life? Or be anywhere near my side of the globe if they do?
