This evening I’ve been thinking about the fact that blogs are just a snapshot and no one ever gets the full picture. Particularly in my blogs because I try very hard to allow others to be anonymous or protect their privacy in what I write. So much so that I’ve been known to go back to entries I wrote on here months or years ago and not have any idea what I was eluding too in my cryptic entries.
After a week+ with no internet I got a new router and got it working this morning. There are a couple of topics I’ve been thinking about writing during that week but this morning I was feeling angry at the world about various different things and I started writing about that. But I didn’t post it because it was just basically “rah angry” and didn’t make much sense. It’s in drafts, I’ll probably delete it when I finish writing this.
I’ve since found something else out about one of the things I was angry about and it makes so much more sense. I’m frustrated by a different but related issue now. Plus, it was basically gossip and I think the person who told me probably wanted a reaction out of me. Which they got to a certain extent at the time but I shouldn’t give them one on my blog too.
So I’m reminded that I should never blog in anger. But that’s a resolution I’ll probably break. Just as soon as I get pissed off again.
