Just a thought I'd like answered, is it... wise to discuss personal spitirual issues and revelations in a blog? Would i be asking for trouble if I did that, or what? Normally I wouldn't touch it, but what I'm thinking about isn't a call for debate, but rather just some personal thoughts and feelings I've had over the last while. You know, things you're generally *supposed* to put in a journal, but I'm still not sure about here. Thoughts, please...

I don't see why not if you want to discuss it. You must have some idea of what people are going to be reading it.

Also, if you really want to, you can set the comments to be screened to maybe avoid something you think might be a problem.

Or you can just discuss it with people privately.

you could talk about it and make your entry friends only, your real friends would not judge you on anything :)

If you're really comfortable talking about it, which seems not to be the case, then post publicly.

But chances are you might feel better with some restrictions on who can read things. If you really only want to keep a record but not have others read it, mark the entries as private. If you don't mind friends-list seeing it, mark it friends-only. Or if you only want some people to see it, you could set up a filter for spirituality posts. As timmowarner suggested, you could set comments to be screened (in addition to whatever other measures you might take) to avoid potential problems.

Since you mentioned it, it seems that you do want to talk about things at least a little bit, though the ultimate security is of course not to post something at all.

I figure it's your journal so you should be able to post what you want. if you don't want people commenting you can turn off comments or make it filtered or friends only or even private. I wouldn't mind. Whatever you wish to post about is cool with me.

If you're worried about who'll read it, post it friends only. I do that regularly. More rarely, I've turned off comments on a post, which you can do if you don't want any.

I usually post such things friends-only, but then again most of my entries are friends only because I only care about the thoughts and opinions of those who are on my friends list.

It all really depends on your comfort level with those thoughts.
