Reading the negative blog posts about the pants/dresses debate yesterday reminded me of why I've been considering making my blog private. I feel pretty vulnerable with all my outlandish ideas broadcast into the blogosphere, where Catholics are waiting with clubs and machetes to murder the reputations of those with whom they disagree.
On the other hand, I have "met" some of the most wonderful Catholics through my blog--people who have brightened my day with their kind words and even opened the door to friendship. I keep going because of them, and I'm grateful to each and every one. They are people of good will, which is the only thing that really matters to me.
