I have now taken a close look at the blog concept and it is not for me. The reason? Blogs are public. You can find them with the help of google and a thousand other search tools. And I am very private person. It's for that reason that I normally avoid forums, and have neither profiles nor facebook accounts or have my phone number listed if I can help it. None of this would matter if the content I wanted to post, was just some small random fiction stories.
But I feel a bit less crowded here on E, occasionally I am willing and ready to post something of personal value, and there even are a few people I am on talking terms with here, who might read it. That's not going to happen in the public area, blog or not. Rather I'll file it to the dustbin.
Oh, and the non-adult sandbox area is also public. Same problem.
So. Any further alternatives ?
