Where everybody knows your name


There is something to be said for the people whose blogs I read who say their families and real-life friends know nothing about said blog.
I have always operated under the theory that I didn’t have anything I wanted to write about that I didn’t want people — any people — reading.
Lately, though, there have been a few things that I have really wanted to let loose on. We’re talking insensible, ranting, Robert-Blake-talking-to-Barbara-Walters-type raving.
But don’t have the freedom to do so because the contingent which aroused my ire also has knowledge of and free access to this blog.
It’s not that I’m mad at specific people. There have just been some subjects near and dear to my heart that have come up and I have felt I needed to reign myself in a bit in discussing them. It would’ve been nice to have an outlet in which to say all the things I was thinking but kept to myself. But it definitely behooves me to keep my own counsel since I never know who might be reading.
Ah well, live and learn. I suppose I could always start another, non-publicized freak-out blog if I really feel the need to see stuff in print.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Mary, I’m Roz, friend of Tiffany (who has your blog linked) Hey, go ahead and let it all out! I’m frequently asked to tell various and asundry folks how I “really feel” after one of my life rant blogs! Isn’t that what we really seek? An outlet for our various ilks? Or a pulpit for our rants?: Or, better yet, a place to BRAG! I just LOVE a good blog and am quite enjoying yours!
    In answer to a later question, Frontpage for quick and easy, Dreamweaver if you intend to do this on some regular basis, unless you a mac user and then quark would be the way to go! Just my opinion, which you may have for exactly what it is worth!
