Hello! Welcome to the community :)
Hi, Thanks for the welcome. I think going public is more interesting. Isn't that the reason why you are doing a blog on line? To get more comments? Confession is good for the soul, but make sure whatever you reveal isn't going to hurt you or other readers you know in any way. You don't want to be sued or embarrassed. You can also use a different name for the person you are blogging about if you write something about them that's controversial.
Hey, Check out my autobiographical novel, "Naked Skydiving!" on www.barnesandnoble.com about the personal life of a dream interpreter, traveling throughoout the west coast, before 9-11. It's written in the traditon of Henry Miller and it's full of pathos and laughter!
