The Philadelphia Story

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.

    This is why I love the filtering features on lj. I don’t post things publicly that that I don’t want the average person reading. I don’t post things to my friends list that I don’t want people I don’t know well reading. I privatize completely things I don’t want anyone to know. It covers every option.

    This is a facinating blog
    Personally, i like to know every second of someone’s life….. πŸ™‚
    It’s a personal choice. I once blogged about something Drew did… it wasn’t pretty. I haven’t made that mistake again (that I know of).

    I use my blog as a way for my friends to know what’s going on in my life. It is not and will never be my professional blog. I will create an entirely different blog for that purpose. I rarely use my name on my blog–you’d have to really want to know about me to track down my name, by reading several posts and piecing things together. πŸ˜‰
    I do filter personal things, like raisinfish. However, I try not to filter everything since I have a couple of friends who are not lj users, like my best friend in Japan, and I don’t get to talk to them much and still want them to know what is going on in my life (good and bad). It’s all about what you are using your blog for. And zeliot is purely my rantage blog. πŸ™‚
