I wrote a post today, about a book I’m reading called A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (one of my favourite authors for his Chaos Walking trilogy). But the post made me so very sad that I decided to not click on ‘publish’. I sometimes write very emotional posts, sometimes I share quite deep and meaningful things here, but I think this one was too deep and too scary to sit out on public display. The topic isn’t a secret, and if I published it I know many of you would have agreed with me on how difficult the subject is, but I just didn’t need my thoughts on the topic in a place where I am reminded of it every time I look at my blog.
It was one of those things that I just needed to write, but I didn’t need to publish.
Do you other bloggers ever do that? Do you ever write a blog post, proof read it and rewrite bits, polish it up a bit, maybe add a photo… then decide to not publish?
If so, what are your reasons?
