My life is full of drama. All the time. And while it makes for some good stories...it really is exhausting to actually live it. Most of it is out of my control. But a few pieces here and there are still in my control.
Someone in my real life has been reading my blog. And not been honest about it until last night. They are upset, which is fine. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and feelings. When I mention someone from my real life here, there really isn't anything that I have said, or wouldn't say directly to them (at some point). This person feels that I am a different person here than I am in real life....I disagree. I talked to another friend about it last night, whom I met on the internet....and knew on-line for a long time before she and I became IRL friends. And she said....no....I write very much the way I talk, and say the same things.
My IRL friends know I have a blog, but I have not shared it with them. If it was something I wanted to share with them, I would give them the addy. But I haven't. I am disappointed that someone would go behind my back and seek it out in secret, let alone comment on it (I am not 100% sure, but alot of pieces add up now).
With that said....I have disabled anonymous comments.
Even though I have a certain amount of anonymity on my blog, if I comment on your blog...you will always know it is ME who left that comment. I don't hide behind the anonymous choice so I can let loose and say what I want. If I have something to say...I will say it.
I believe this person has been one of my anonymous commentors, and while not every anonymous comment is negative, I would rather take this option away vs go towards comment approval (where I would have the option to weed out what I don't want, and I don't think that is the idea....)
I also decided against making my blog private. If I need to go that route at some point, then I will revisit that idea. I just don't think I need to do that right now.
If this person chooses to continue to read...go right ahead. I find it kind of sad that they have to stoop to that level, but it is their life. They told me last night that they do not wish to be my friend anymore. And I said you gotta do what you gotta do. Drama over.
