When I started working for the law firm in early 2003, I felt the need to password protect some of my posts. I didn’t want to censor myself, but I didn’t want to leave myself open to the world either. Sort of like walking around the chick doc’s office in those paper gowns with your butt hanging out, you know? So with Jenn’s help, I had password protection in place.
In 2004, the law firm and I broke up. No, seriously. They told me they really liked me, but they didn’t want me to work there anymore.
PI Lawyer Atlanta has burned through two more legal assistants since then, so it is safe to say it wasn’t me, it was him. Anyways, last summer I made the move to WordPress, and I left the password protection behind.
Some days I really miss it.
Some days I consider completely moving to an anonyblogging site, so I can write freely again.
Some days I don’t want to do that at all, because in a move like that you tend to lose some of your favorite people.
I want that feeling back. I want to be able to write what I want, when I want, without being judged for it. It doesn’t happen often, but that is probably in part to the self-censoring I’ve been doing for 2 years now. It’s getting old.
I’m going to find a way to restrict access to certain posts here. I haven’t decided yet how liberal I will be with my access to others. I’ll let you know when it is in place, and you are more than welcome to register. I might not approve you though. We’ll see.
Those of you that are long-time bloggers know exactly how I feel. Those of you that are newer bloggers may know it already too – and if you don’t, well … you will understand.
This? This is nice. I am talking on my site about how I’m feeling. This is how it all started. I like it when it feels this way. After close to 5 years of blogging, sometimes you have to shake the dust off.
It’s time to take back the blog.
