Do you keep a blog which known only by yourself?

I mean only by yourself means that your blog is not known by someone you know. Even if it is your friends, your classmates, your colleagues, or your boyfriend or girlfriend. I do so. I keep a blog which known only by myself, and on it, I could express my own feelings, and those feelings even do not know by my best friend. I think that kind of feeling is great.

Having a private journal, digital or not, is a good idea. There are thoughts that you want to keep to yourself. There are problems that you choose to keep to yourself too. Sometimes, when we write something that is viewable by the public, we censor things or, sometimes, actually write something that is totally opposite to our true view of the issue. I keep a private journal myself. I have an online private journal and a private journal. They remind me that I don't have to log things on the web to show off.

I keep a true honest to goodness paper journal for things like that. I started out journaling that way, long before I started to blog on the internet. And I can not bring myself to create a private blog on the internet. I think it is because I understand a little too much about search engines. All it takes is one link not being hidden properly and voilia every search engine in the world knows your business. Better a paper journal and locked drawer, I say.
