Do I Blog Our Fights?

He asks me if my blog is sad. He asks because he has not read it. He's told me thinks blogs are stupid so I suppose that this is why he hasn't read it.
I ask him why he wants to know that, and he says that he thinks I've been blogging because things have been bad, we've been fighting a lot. He thought maybe I was blogging my sadness or something.
I suppose that would be the more theraputic thing to do. But there seems to be something so, well, common about throwing your dirty laundry out there for the world to read. And I don't want to be judged for the rotten things I say when I'm mad. And I don't want him to be judged. Which is why I don't invite you all OVER for our fights.
And I suppose, that I just don't want to talk about them in general. So no, I do not blog our fights.
It makes me wonder though, how many of us are out there not blogging our fights, not blogging other negativity that is really very consuming. And would it help if we did?

Probably not.

the most compelling blogs -to me, anyway- are the ones that detail some of the most innerworkings of relationships. but it has to be accompanied by plain writing -- some of these "i'm writing this down for my readers" blogs are really terrible.

i myself would never dare to blog negative things about the people i love.
