I have a fairly thoroughly thought-out pose in my head, but want to sleep on it before I decide to publish. Not due to any self-doubts about the content or message therein, but because I think it requires some careful wording, and right now I’m exhausted and overstimulated and chock full of various thoughts and emotions. I’ll sleep a bit, and hope that my mental thesaurus is in better working order tomorrow.
In the meantime, I ask you this: if someone asked you to take down your blog, someone you held in high personal regard until about 8 hours ago, would you do it? What if they demanded you take it down, or edit old posts (I’m not really clear on the precise demand)? What if they threatened you to never mention them again on your blog, even though there’s no actual consequence that could arise from said threat?
What would it take for you to shut it all down?
(And, no. I’m not taking it down, or editing old posts, or making promises as to future ones. I was asked to do all of the above today, and decided that was neither necessary nor in my best interest, and would not fix the actual, larger, underlying problems. But still, it’s food for thought…)
