So here goes. My honest attempt and effort at personal and private “penning” in my new Journal. I asked a dear friend Philip about my posting on personal and private issues.
Philip McCanless Hey April, Regarding public vs. private, I think it’s different for everyone. To some extent, the internet gives everyone an equal platform. If it’s cathartic for you to share intimate details of your life, then by all means do it. You wouldn’t be the first (or the last). Gayatri brings up a good point that some people might use your musings against you. No doubt that’s happened to you already. But like Bernard Beruch said, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
Philip McCanless Also, most people (including myself) just post a highlight reel of their lives. With you, we get the good the bad and the ugly. That’s pretty brave.
