why i sometimes delete a post

Rarely is it because of the few who care to drop by for a visit. I don't even care, usually, if a topic runs amok. Some people prefer their blogs and posts stay on topic. I, however, find tangents interesting. Everyone can run a blog in the manner in which they feel is appropriate.

My usual reasons for post deletion are these:

  • TMI – on second thought I gave out Too Much Information, usually personal.
  • I got preachy – the last post I just now deleted, I sounded like a moralizing dry drunk.
  • It hit too close to home – goes along with "I got too personal, or TMI".
  • I told some flat out lies that even bothered *ME* ๐Ÿ˜†
  • It just didn't have the right feel.

So there. Let's do coffee.

    You are precious! I could use a smoke right now.

  2. I'm smoking, let's have coffee!

  3. Would this be a bad time to admit that I have no idea which post is missing? If so, I won't do it.

  4. :coffee:a perfect reason to have coffee :up:so, ๐Ÿ˜ฎ when are you going to post on food? I kinda love them posts of yours !

  5. TMI is a common reason for me to delete posts but sometimes my posts take a hit if I don't feel too good about certain stuff ๐Ÿ˜›

    Why thank you! I need to get back into that but haven't run across anything post worthy lately. I got a bad craving for fried chicken yesterday, so I got a 2-piece-n-a-biscuit at Bojangle's. It was so greasy that I might as well have consumed a bottle of motor oil. I've got to stop doing that.

  8. :happy: I am looking forward to it !PSoily food in moderation is not a bad thing! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I am just saying…

  9. 'I told some flat out lies that even bothered *ME*':D :yikes: Like this one, but any reason to delete a post is fine. You're the boss you know! :up:

  10. I've never had to delete a post yet. I've removed a few odd comments but not the post. Maybe I'm not bothered by anything that comes out of my head and makes it onto a web server ๐Ÿ˜†

  11. I fully expected explosive diarrhea to be on the list……

    Lol. That's my favorite call-in-at-work excuse, though I only call in about once a year. It gets 'em off the phone fast with few questions.
