  1. Yes, I have many lines as a matter of fact. I have a list of topics that I’ll blog about– and I have a list of the ways in which I’ll talk about my topics. If I can’t say something using both of those criteria, then I’ll say nothing. I have a “when in doubt, don’t” attitude about blogging– which means that many posts that I write don’t make the cut & I delete them. It might be an uptight approach, but it has served me well over the years.

    1. I have to agree if you get that queasy feeling before clicking the publish button than you probably shouldn’t have blogged about it. It is really a balance to make the right choice and save some yourself from future headaches.

    1. I think there are times if it is more of an opinion piece it is found to watch what happens. But when it comes to a personal level is everyone, every topic, and everything game? I think sometimes we have to take a step back and ensure that there is that balance that doesn’t harm others.

      1. For me I don’t really consider it a “line” per se, more of a “I really want to write about this but it’d fall into ‘really stupid’ territory”. While I excel at ‘really stupid’ for a great many things… I try to leave them out of my writing.

  2. I would never write a blog that would make anyone look bad, and it doesn’t matter even if they’d never read my blog in a million years.

  3. What I have found out is that my feeling about something I have written is not always echoed by my reader, a gallant Albanian who powers up his laptop with a turnip powered furnace. Once you write something it becomes the property of the reader, and they will often go off with it in directions you never dreamed of. Having said that, I would never make an unpleasant remark about the Albanian, or anyone else in print, or I might end up with no readers at all. Apart from that it would be a bit rude and small minded. Blimy, I’m rambling on here

    1. It really does take off in the direction of the reader and what they envision! I feel the same however I have a tendency to put my foot in my mouth but that just comes naturally…

      I think I have the same Albanian visitor now I will be envisioning him as industrious as he “powers up his laptop with a turnip powered funace.” Love it!

  4. Hahahaha! I’m glad to read this post right now, because I’ve been toying with writing about something I just don’t know belongs in my blog. I mean, there’s merit in it, certainly–but is it what I want people to think of when they wonder whether to check out my blog or bypass it? Probably not!

    1. It all depends on the topic…I think we have a lot of power as bloggers to convey certain messages to the world. I always wonder why would anyone ever want to write something hurtful of another person. It’s strange.

      1. I hear that. I am very, very careful about what I put up about anyone, whether positive or negative . . . but, although there’s negative in my interactions with even those I love most, they such a small part of the totality of our experience that I have no interest in documenting them for posterity and making them bigger than they are.

        In my case, no one would be harmed in the making of my post. It’d just be more of a TMI thing. And yet, there could be good from it, which is why I’m tempted to post it as a cautionary tale.

  5. I actually have lots of things I think about blogging, but won’t. I think that we do have to draw the line somewhere. Although, if you ask a couple of members of my family, I have already given TMI in some of my posts. But I NEVER talk about my family or friends by name. Knowing how they feel about it, I wish I’d never told them that I blog. lol!
