Downside of a blog
Downside of a blog: all the shit I want to write about but can't. Free speech be damned -- you try writing about friends, family, co-workers, your marriage, or your job the way you really want to. At the end of the day, really free speech ends up being sort of theoretical. Unless you're the kind of blogger who has neither friends, family, co-workers, marriage, nor a job, of which there are probably several, come to think of it. In which case you may be able to say anything you want, if you still have something to say.
