Hardware fasteners as metaphor
"Blogs unbolt door into writer's world" is the title on this Oklahoman article, and maybe it's true to some extent, but I would be remiss if I didn't point out that some of us, far from being unbolted, are perilously close to coming unscrewed.
On the other hand, the reporter did ask good questions, and good answers were generally forthcoming, occasionally even from me, though I wince just slightly at this:
Whether written or digital, journals are a representation of the author. And when the author looks back on past entries, they learn more about themselves.
That is, of course, the editorial "they."
