Having a personal blog online for over two decades is an interesting experience. I’ve talked about going back and reviewing pieces of our life that happened a long while ago, but one of the more concerning aspects of the longevity of this blog is the amount of spam I receive that has one too many details for my comfort level.

I’ll get an email referencing a blog post from well over 10 years ago from sort of marketing spammy type thing and for a few moments it completely unnerves me. There are times that I wonder if it’s worth maintaining this now-antiquated presence without some sort of further guardrails around on the whole thing.

Of course, I’m a bit of a control freak, and I like to know everything that’s going on, to the best of my ability, at any given moment. In this increasingly chaotic world, that’s hard to achieve. But I like to keep up the façade for my own personal enjoyment.

I’ve been writing a daily post for the past few years because it wasn’t an exercise in sharing life, including the mundane points. When I first started the blog my posts were not as frequent.

As the Internet moves to a darker place, with way too many bad actors operating in the space and way too many corporations trying to monetize everything this side of my consumption of oxygen, I’m wondering if my ideals and values are outdated and in the long wrong could create further security concerns and the like.

I guess it’s a matter of what will happen first, I reach my expiration date or my blog gives out one too many secrets.
