I just posted my review of the movie I blogged about a few weeks ago: The Philadelphia Story. Not only does it take place back near where I grew up, but it’s a fantastic movie. Read the review to see why.
In other news, I just wanted to post about blogs in general. I know that there are a lot of people who post their entire lives online, and frankly . . . I’m not sure how good a thing that is. There is such a thing as privacy, and while I suppose I can see the voyeuristic appeal of peering into someone else’s life, I also think such a thing can be overdone. Here at my blog, there are some things you’re never going to see. For example, if I ever disagree with my wife or family, I’m not going to tell you about it. My blog isn’t going to be the staging ground to publicly criticize people (or at least not intentionally or directly). I believe privacy is a wonderful thing, and I value my own.
Now, my own struggles with writing and school and work–that’s all fair game. I’ll try not to hold back on issues that I could theoretically see other people being interested in in general. But anything that I wouldn’t tell someone in person if I didn’t know them well, then that’s the sort of thing I might hold back. I realize this might be a touchy subject for some–and please don’t think that this post was made because of anything you posted on your own blog. It’s more a reaction to blogs in general, now that I’ve been reading them for a month or so.
And I think that’s all I have to say about that for now.
