I Censor Myself..do you?

How many times, you bloggers, do you write, then delete posts for being too hard for your readers to take? Or perhaps, too personal??

I have done this 4 times since beginning this blog.

Iíve written a few blogs Iíve never posted. Written a lot of comments Iíve never submitted. Because they were spiritual in nature and a lot of bloggers relate that to religious dogma. Most just wouldnít get it. Itís akin to telling a joke and being the only one laughing.
The most personal and complex ones never made it to the keyboard. I am unable to express these in words and afraid to expose myself to those that know me. I feel like written text is the least efficient method of communicating emotion for me. I envy the poet and lyricist.

well, kokpelli
i'd like to read that spiritual bs, not kidding.

rather than it being akin to telling a joke and being the only one laughing. i think it is more like looking at a painting. different people may interpret it differently than what the artist intended, and that is an element that helps it to be great. it is hard to be the artist, author, composer and to put yourself out there, to be open to interpretation other than what you intended as well as personal judgement.

i'm sure your words, however unexpressive, would have deeply personal meaning to me that you never intended.

... still haven't figured out how to delete my post.....

Rarely, I write offline and edit it there. One exception was my September 11 post; I forced myself not to edit it, and just put it out. The result is that six weeks later, I still haven't been able to complete it.
