Finally, the Letter Z
Zip it up.
My blog, this blog, “Lynda Grace An Hour Away” is my main, public, (and publicized) the more who read, the merrier blog.
On January 1, 2012, I started another blog which was a personal journal. You know, pretty boring stuff like what the weather was like, who I talked to, where we went, things like that.
Lately my days seem to seamlessly blend, one into the other and I easily forget what I did, when I did it and sometimes even why I did it. So, why not record it in a blog, right? It basically became a memory record for me.
I kept the settings open to the public on this blog also, mainly because I didn’t think anyone would find it and if they did, I didn’t think anyone would be interested in what we had for dinner on Monday, March 12.
I know, I know, I do post entries from Anna’s diary, but I feel Anna’s diary is more of a sociology lesson and readers might be interested in how a young widow spent her days back in 1929.
Perhaps, in 2095, someone might find what we had for dinner on Monday, March 12, 2012 interesting, but I think not today.
Okay, I admit, since I felt that privacy (because like I said, who would be interested) was not an issue, I did use the names of family members. And I may have recorded an incident here or there that if I knew anyone was reading this journal, I might not have otherwise done so.
What happened today, couldn’t have come at a better time. You know with today being the last day of the challenge and therefore the letter is Z.
Today, someone did find my journal. One of the family members, whom I happened to mention a few times in my journal, was contacted by this someone. Then this family member contacted me and asked me if I mentioned a certain incident in my blog. I said, “No, why would I do that?”
I honestly never even thought about my journal blog. As this family member and I scratched our heads and wondered how this someone would know about this incident, I suddenly remembered my journal blog.
Actually, whatever I did write about was quite innocuous, but I did write it without censorship, because, I will repeat for the third time, I never thought anyone would find it or read it.
Lesson learned the hard way. Public, means just that. Yeah, I knew that, but (here’s number four mention) who would ever find it or care to read it?
My journal blog is still active, but it is zipped up so tight, that even I have to enter a password to read it.
P.S. My apologies to this family member.
This is the end of the A-Z challenge. It was a lot of fun and I happened across a ton of new and interesting blogs.
I have created a page for Anna's Diary. It can be found under the Tab titled Anna's Diary.
I have posted all of the entries to date there, starting with January 1, 1929.
Here is today’s entry from Anna’s diary:
Tuesday, April 30, 1929
E. came to see me and confided her state of affairs. Very little advice could be give on this trouble but hope it all works our for the best.
