A New Blog

Recently I have seriously considered starting a new blog. I plan on keeping this one, but I don't feel free enough to be completely honest. Sometimes I rant and get in trouble. Other times I talk to honestly about my marriage, and I later regret it since my own hubby reads this.

I want to be able to keep my identity completely secret with no relatives reading my blog. That way the new blog would actually serve as my own personal diary/journal. I would be able to say the things on my mind without embarrassment.

Does any of this make sense? Is it wrong to have something of my own that no relatives(even my hubby) can read?

Nope, not wrong at all. As a matter of fact, It's probably a great idea. I know it has been nice for me.

that makes perfect sense. i was thinking of doing the same thing but just haven't found the time yet. Just make sure you send out the new addy to those of us loyal -non relative- readers. ;-)

I have thought about having an alternate blog a couple of times, to have someplace for anonymous rants, but then I realize how expressing some of those negative thoughts would effect me. They have in the past, and not just by getting in trouble by people close to me reading them, but by how my whole outlook on life/my mindset was changed for the worse.

The stuff I would want to express in complete secrecy is mostly, if not all, bad stuff. That's why I haven't set up a private blog. I'm afraid it would not only not be therapeutic, but instead, cause my own internal negativity to grow, if that makes sense.

You make the decision though, if you think it would be good for your mental health, and you have the time then do it. I don’t think I’d give the address out to anyone at all though, if I were you.

Some folks do keep online journals that are completely private; where no one else can even read them, much less leave comments. That’s the way I’d do it if I kept a journal of my own.

These are just my thoughts on the issue. Please take them for what they’re worth.
