One of the things about blogging is that it can sometimes get you in trouble. Recently this has been in the news again with the firing of the writer of petiteanglaise.com [Read the CNN Article]. This phenomena has even made it into internet slang as being “dooced” named from the website of one of the first publicized instances of this happening [dooce.com]
So what does this mean for this blog? Well for starters it makes me consider the things I post about (at least publicly). While this blog isn’t widely publicized, it wouldn’t be that hard for someone to find it if they wanted to. So there have been a few things that I’ve wanted to write about, however have refrained from posting them, because I’m not sure how someone down the road will read into them. Eventually, I hope to be able to protect some entries, allowing known people to access them (through a login and password). However the plugin for the blogging software I’m currently using does not quite have the functions I want yet. A pending version looks to be more of what I’m looking for. Until then, some of my entries will remain unpublished.
