Contemplating a move...

I've been checking out Word.press as a possible move... I like blogger and I'm comfortable here. But lately, I've wished I could password protect specific posts, and WP allows for that. There are things I want to get out of my head that I don't necessarily want all to read. I know it's *my* blog and that I should be able to say whatever I want, but it's still read by *real* people with real feelings and opinions. I love that people read my blog and I love the connections I've made here... but there are still deep dark thoughts I don't want to put out there.

But WP doesn't have some of the flexibility that blogger has. I can't use some of my widgets. I can't change the colors of the page...

On top of that, I don't know how I'm feeling about blogging and how I'm feeling about this whole process right now. I feel like I should have more optimism for tomorrow, but I'm afraid to be optimistic. I am, however, also afraid to be pessimistic. Afraid that I will jinx the process with my negative vibes. Except I don't really believe in that stuff...

Hmmm. What to do...

hey there. i haven't checked out wordpress, but i do have a few posts in blogger that remain in draft mode, never posted....because they are just for me. it isn't the same but so far it haas been good enough for me. the bad part is you can't share with selec people since it isn't posted.....hmmm.

I thought of that too...wanting to go to wordpress because I want to rant about things that I can't because my brother's gf may read it (she is the root to all my misery lately). I had to put 3 posts into drafts and make them unpublic because she caught me blogging at my dads house and said "oh, I don't know you have a blog!" Shit...had to fix my blog fast. I could care less about her reading it, I just don't want to hurt my brother and broadcast his drama for other *real* life people to read!

I know your not sure about tomorrow but I'm praying for you! praying that is goes well and praying that your heart feels better. Hang in there love!

Whatever you decide I hope you still blog. I have gotten so much from reading your posts. I know it is a hard decision. I have open and closed my blogs more times than I can count. Wherever you end up, my prayers are with you!

Gah - I am looking forward to your update today. I hope it is a fabulous update.

I switched from blogger to WP and it is so-so - I do not like that they do not have the updates on when my favorite blogs are updated - I have to check each one and that takes forever.

Thinking of you (and B dog)
