All too often people speak without thinking, but they can't take away what they've said. All too often professional writers and reporters write something without doing due diligence but cant take it away once published. Where does blogging fit in? One can delete a post or reply and few will notice. But does that change what was said? No. It merely lessens the number of times it has been read.
There are times when I think I should hit the delete button after making a post due to poor grammar or because of the content. I've done it a few times. Perhaps I should exercise that option more often. Instead I choose to let my joys, triumphs, failures and frustrations stay for me to reflect upon over the course of time. If someone should stumble upon them and conclude that I'm a basket case...I'm grateful to have provided fodder for their mental musings. If, on the other hand, someone is moved to looking deeper into their relationship with Our Lord, I'm honored to have been used for that purpose.
I like Gavin Richardson's blog title: "Hit the Back Button to Move Fwd". I think I can relate.
