If you don't like what I am writing...

Location:  MY blog
Mood:  indignant

Don't read my blog!

That's really the way I feel right now.  I will, I think, always be respectful of people who are in my world - I may not be so respectful in telling of stories related to people so far in the past that they are long forgotten, or never known by any of my readers.  But I have some respect for privacy, and for dignity.

But that said, please don't read this if it is going to upset you.  We are all responsible for our own macabre urges to look at the car accident as we drive past.  Nobody is holding our heads and saying "you must look".  

The reason I write a blog is because:

a) I enjoy writing
b) It helps me process my emotions and my situations
c) I do enjoy (perhaps too much) sharing my life with others
d) I hope to provide some type of entertainment in the writing, and maybe connect with people

And I have spent a lot of time thinking about self-editing because of worrying about this, or worrying about that, or the impression it makes, or the feelings I hurt.  But what am I going to do?  Sabotage my entire intention for even having a blog in the first place?  I don't want to resort to moving the entire blog to a private permissions-oriented site, to protect the innocent from themselves.  So the alternative here is to just say as I said at the beginning:  

If it upsets you so much, or pisses you off, or seems inappropriate... don't look.

(edited by me, because I feel like I said too much)
