Not long ago, I accidentally deleted one of the protected posts that I had made in here.
It wasn’t about anything particularly major, but I’ve been testing out the ability to make them and deciding what would be “enough” for me to make a protected post… and then I went on ahead and did that. And before I had even become aware that I had deleted that post, I had run Sweep on here, so it was forever gone. At any rate, I learned my lesson when Bub’s paternal family found an old blog of mine². I don’t mind being open about some things, like how my lack of religion on a technicality has shaped and continues to shape who I am as a person. I don’t mind being open about a lot of things. But there are some things that I would rather not make accessible to every single person who finds my blog or happens to have the URL.
In other news, I’m glad that I have our computer controller’s keypad mapped to more or less everything that it needs to be mapped for to make playing games on Steam enjoyable. So far, it hasn’t let me down in any game aside from having to hit the X button a single time in Final Fantasy VI to switch targets so that I could throw a Phoenix Down at the boss, an undead train, and instantly kill it. I was struggling with being able to switch targets using the controller so just looked up how to do it with the keyboard and did it that way…
²: I didn’t even mind as much that they found the blog as I minded their reactions to me writing about the things that I did in it, as more than one person had begun to express valid concern about those things to me.
