I am going to start writing a few password-protected posts. As open as I’ve been here, I’m cognizant of the fact that I might not want unidentified people reading everything I have to say. Particularly, I worry about someone from our agency reading and thinking, Holy cow, we should not let that woman have a child! (I really do have this thought from time to time.)
I still plan on the bulk of my posts being open. The password protection will only apply to an occasional post here or there.
If we have met through blogging or the various online communities I’m a part of, I’d love for you to have the password. I don’t care if you are a regular reader, or if you’ve only just now started to read, or whatever. Please just ask and I will give it to you. Leave a comment below or send me an email.
But here’s the hard part: Family and friends (other than those defined above), I’m going to have to draw a very difficult line. I am not going to give you the password. I will not be talking about you behind your backs or saying anything that you really need to know. You won’t be missing anything as far as the adoption goes. As I said, the majority of the blog will still be open for everyone to read. But honestly, there are times when I need a more anonymous audience for my thoughts. I think I have been a bit too open at times here (you’re probably thinking, you’re telling me!), but still, there are things I haven’t been able to say on this blog because of some of the readership. I hope you aren’t hurt or offended. But this is my blog and it’s what I need to do for now.
So, with those parameters in place, please let me know if you want the password. And I suppose this means I have to actually choose a password!
