Anonymity, Damnit!

Someone visited this blog the other day and it shows that they found me by googling part of my old blog url. I didn’t know that it was connected to this blog in a way that it could be found! The whole point of starting this new one was to have the freedom to spill my guts without certain parties being privvy to my ramblings.

So, I’ve been googling myself (that just sounds wrong…) trying to see where else I show up on the internet. This is something I have done before (and haven’t gone blind, yet…). But things are showing up now from things I did two years ago that did NOT show up in google a year ago. That’s kind of scary.

When I was active on my old blog, I apparently signed up for every social blogger network that I could in order to drive traffic to my blog. I’m now suddenly finding myself in places I don’t remember ever being (and I was even sober…) and trying to delete these accounts. Some of them make that rather difficult to do! Like Technorati. I was able to unlink my blog, but I could not delete my profile or even change my name and e-mail.

So, I’m not so sure what to do now. Maybe I will need to move this to a new domain. What a pain. It’s not that I don’t want to be read, I just don’t want to be read by certain people.

I don’t know…I’m probably asking for too much.

(Yes, that really is a word…)

Oh, Blogosphere…How I Miss Thee!

Blogging was such a big part of my world for a couple of years. It helped me as I struggled through some heavy issues in my life. Then I had to abandon it for various reasons. I started this one as a fresh start as my life changed. Now I work full time and am single-parenting three kiddos. I haven’t really had the energy or brain-cell activity to blog.

But I’m starting to really miss it.

I try to fill the void by updating my Facebook status, but it’s just not the same! Some anecdotes are worthy of so much more than being crammed into a grey box on a social network. Am I right?!

So, let’s see if we can give this another go. Writing is pretty cathartic. Not only that, it really helps relieve pent-up emotions!

Ann-Other Comeback

P.S. Holy Cow, I just noticed that it’s been almost a year to the date since my last post. Good Grief, Charlie Brown!
