Let me try this again.
[Again? When was the first time?]
Secrets, baby. Secrets.
I was just writing a post about having so many private posts for an iteration of a blog that is only two years old (something more than 100, something less than 500) that… well… went privately posted.
I don’t want to get into the deep part of it, but the gist was: I do a lot of writing that, for whatever reason, seemed like a good idea to post about until I get partway through the post (or finish it and move on to the edit stage) that just needs to go to the private bucket.
Without explaining the exact problems here, let’s just say that the bulk of those private posts have to deal with my spiritual journey and trying to explain it. The problem is, I dislike the tone more often than I like it. The posts are either too commonplace and feel like adding more chaff to what is already out there, or they smell like that chaff. Or smell more like the end-product of a pig eating chaff…
And yet, I sometimes just the corn-ball idea that someone else might benefit from my more in depth musing. So… I keep writing these posts that go to private worlds, never to be seen by anyone at all (once I realize I’m probably sounding like a pompous twit).
So tell me in the comments, how many posts do you think you average a year that have a kernel of something that might be worthwhile, so you save it for possible resurrection later on as a private post?
- Between none and 10 a year
- Between 11 and 25 a year
- Between 26 and 50 a year
- Between 51 and 100 a year
- TMTC (Too Many To Count)
Make me feel good and admit that you post to private a ton of drivel that isn’t ready for prime time. Or call me out for my excessive clandestine word usage and being a sniveling little rat-faced git.
