Password protected


Sorry about going all password protected on you.  Doesn’t it just make you feel like the kid who was the only one not invited to a party?  So sorry en so.

The thing is that at first I didn’t password protect the entry.  I never do.  This is my blog.  My journal.  My daily life and views.  My motto is that if you say or do it, I will blog it.

This was close to my heart though and it didn’t make me so much vulnerable, as it did someone else.  That’s when I decided it’s not fair.  It’s not fair to share my feelings when I’m going to hurt someone else’s.

I think that’s when one should password protect.  When it’s about protecting someone.  Even when it’s someone who probably doesn’t deserve to be protected but all the same, I cannot intentionally hurt someone. 

So why write the post at all then?  For me.  Putting my feelings on paper helps me make sense of a situation.  Also, some times you lose perspective and need to be able to go back and truly see what you were feeling then.

  1. Strangely enough, I also thought that password protected was to proctect the other person, but I got into more “trouble” cos the post was password protected!!! Damned if you do, damned if you don’t!

    Yes I did feel like I wasn’t invited to the party. Pout. I completely understand. I do well to write out my feelings. It really helps me sort through them, plus, keeps me from saying unkind things to someone else.

    You password protect anytime you like. Just make sure we get in on the party some of the time.

  3. your locig makes perfect sense to me, and i have no problem with people protecting their posts if they feel the need to.

  4. I didn’t even see it, as the post didn’t show up in my reader.

    It’s good for you to get it out of your head. We don’t need to read it.

    I think you must password protect also when you feel necessary.

    Totally don’t feel badly. I agree that you are entitled to do what you like. If you want to vent but aren’t sure of who will find it, or of the repercussions… protect away.
    Peace, Mel!

  7. Aww, thanks for your comment! Yes, that WAS sweet of him. Don’t recall seeing your name too often on comments, so thought I’d pop over and say thanks:)

  8. Totally agree. It’s your blog, and you can do what you want with it. And protecting someone else is a great reason to password protect a post.
