Good night and good luck

November 4, 2009 § 6 Comments

Firstly, I would like say that though this blog was borne out of wanderlust and travel, it has inevitably become an extremely personal platform from which I regularly broadcast where I have been, what I have been doing, and more often than not, how I have been feeling. It’s a public blog which I’ve made accessible via web link from my Facebook page, available to all and sundry whom I consider my friends. All of my joy, sorrows, anger, and frustrations in all its shapes and sizes are cast here for the entire world to see. I know some close friends read it regularly to get updates on my life without me spending hours on details, and random people who trawl the blog community sometimes read it as a form of entertainment. I don’t filter my content, nor consider my audience. Some things might make you laugh, make you cringe, or perhaps make you cry. Obviously that is not my aim but generally I just write whatever I want. Nevertheless, the point I’m trying to make is, it is a public page, and I realize that just like anything that is public, people can choose to read it or not. It is like changing the channel if you don’t like what you see on TV, or turning the radio off if you don’t like the DJ or music. Very recently I had to delete a post which clearly offended deeply, and received a very long message telling me so. There were clearly many misunderstandings and character judgements associated with it, and but it is far too complex to relate, so I’ve decided not to delve into them at all. Since this is my blog and I would have loved to leave that post here, I do not want to go to sleep at night knowing that a certain post could be read over and over to infuriate anyone even further. So the last thing I will say is, if anything written here upsets you, please do yourself a favour, and stop reading.

    I must have missed that post… I support freedom to express our thoughts without worrying about what people would say. On a more personal note, I have a good mind to start another secret blog now for certain reasons.

    Yeah I agree but it’s a bit more complicated in this instance, deleting it was just easier. I used to have a secret blog, but I deleted that too.

    I’m still trying to figure out which blog I met you on! Dammit woman.

    I’ve take a few posts offline for various reasons. Wait, I’ve taken the entire first two years of my blog offline. Forgot all about that. I like the control I have of my current one, even if the blogosphere is dying a slow death.

  • Steph says:

    I still can’t figure out why you did that, that’s the time you sorta disappeared for a coupla weeks and made us all worry about you. As for the secret blog, well, it shall have to remain a secret 🙂

  • Orhan Kahn says:

    It was more a process of letting go of the past. I have a very dark and troubled past and taking all those posts offline felt good. I actually hate thinking about the past now because I’m just such a different and satisfied person. It is strange to think I had control of my life the whole time and just sat as a passenger for a decade waiting for someone to take the wheel.

    I suppose I deleted that blog for similar reasons, coz I’m not that person anymore.
