There is a reason my blog posts don’t refer to people by name. Whether it is my daughter, son, extended family or friends (even enemies, lol) – they all have a right to privacy.
The blog represents my perspective – regarding events, circumstances and people. My perspective. I would feel obligated to share their perspectives, too, if I used names.
Looking back at the word ‘enemies’ makes me chuckle. There are people I don’t trust, people that are not my friends – the word ‘enemies’ is a little harsh…I do not have wicked people out there actively seeking my demise. I find it much more enjoyable to write about loved family and friends, than those in that other category. I am the sort of person who will tell you to your face if I have a problem with you.
Sometimes, my readers recognize themselves or a mutual friend in a post. That’s okay – I’m glad they know I was thinking about them.
