BLOGGING

AND PROGRESS

is it worth the angst?

I’ll admit it—I’m becoming a wee bit technophobic as the century scorches on by and leaves me choking in a cloud of obsolescent dust and feathers.

YESTERDAY

I tried creating a new blog using WP’s (lovely?) (Yeuch!) new ‘block’ method. I fell at the first hurdle when I discovered after too much time and effort that no matter what I did my ‘home’ and ‘contact’ details were up there for all the world to pounce on.

I BLOG

because it is effectively anonymous.

But when some anus puts my private details out on the web for every (other) kook to plague I’m tempted to give up. I blew it away and just hope that nobody saw it.

I DON’T WANT

anyone hounding and pounding my privates any more than I want religious/political wide-eyed & staring nutcases knocking me up to sell me God, Gods, gods, godlets or yet another true path to absolute bliss on earth in a Citizen’s Paradise. (I no longer even invite Mormons into my home, no matter how desperate they are for new sheep to skin.)(They were such fun, once …)

I LOVE BLOGGING

yes, because I can say what I think without anuses pounding on my door or worse. If I lose my anonymity then I’m out of here—the last time I checked ‘BLOGSPOT’ was still recruiting, and there’s no end of others.

Being able to say what you think used to be called ‘Free Speech’ and it is a diminishing resource. Lose it and we lose any semblance of freedom — not that there’s much left to lose anyway.

    1. I plan on clearing this one of all its history, but wanted a ‘ready use’ back up in case. If I go off the air a la Ark you’ll know that somewhere along the line I goofed (and I’m a genius at goof).

  1. I continue to blog anonymously because over the years I’ve grown fond of “Notes”, I have no qualms about telling anyone who asks, my name is Valerie. I agree with you that personal contact information, address and phone number should never be public record – there’s a whole lot of crazy out there!
