A friend drops off the blogroll
A blogger I know has decided to retire from the fray, and here's why (no link, she's pulling the goodbye page):
It was always my intention that I share [my] experiences with others in hopes that someone would be able to relate or possibly learn. Just being able to share my experience at all has been a great source of comfort to me. However, much of what I write I would never want my family or co-workers to have access to without my express consent. That is hardly possible when all they have to do is Google me and there it is.
I understand, believe me. Few people can maintain an open-book life; the only reason I appear to get away with it sometimes is because I hold back at least as much as I reveal.
From the net to the fishbowl: is anyone still surprised?
