New condo; blogging thoughts

First off, Dave and I just bought one of these for our bunnies! How cute is this! For one thing, we needed to encourage creative activity, and for another, we need to encourage chewing, and nonbleached, nonprinted cardboard is a great way to do that.

I'll definitely post a follow-up shot of the bunnies inside the condo when we get it!

Aside from the bunny & Freakonomics fun, I've been thinking of something today. When I first started this blog, I remember something that my friend Katie said about her blog, which is that some things that you really want to blog about, you just can't, because of the public nature of a blog itself.

Now, I'm a pretty open person (and so is she), so I figured, well, not much would be out of bounds, right?

Unfortunately, lots of things can be too "private" for blogging purposes, though those are the very things you want to get off of your chest — fights in a relationship or friendship; private annoyances with others; and, of course, bachelorette party activities, which I glossed over in a previous post.

Part of the purpose of reading (or writing) a personal blog like this is to gain (or give) an insight into someone's life. However, the more I end up leaving out of my posts, the more private that I realize I can be. Plus, the anonymity of some individuals is better left intact.

Anyway, at the end of the day, some rants that I could write (and would feel justified in doing so) just wouldn't be worth it, no matter how much I want to write them — no matter what the person has done to me. Things like the sad end of a long friendship are painful enough as they are, I guess.
