Options for the Blog.
Let me see if I can give you the options I think might work in the future. THESE ARE MY IDEAS SUBJECT TO YOUR AGREEMENT AS TO WORKLOAD AND RISK OF EXPOSURE OF YOUR PRIVACY AND ANONYMITY.
1. Currently. I send you personal letters and blog posts. You post whatever you feel is relevant or blog-worthy. I respond to any questions of readers by making a post of it. You send me comments as you do now. I spell check and proof all letters and posts to keep your editing workload to a minimum and allow you to continue your efforts to maintain a digital archive. You do not release my name to anyone. If you do not have a problem with it, one modification is to give my name to those who ask for it.
2. Less Work. You shut down the blog. We still correspond. Letters deal mostly with our day-to-day-lives and are light on political commentary. I do less actual writing, as anything of a current events/political commentary nature would probably not have much value in the future. You could give my name to those readers you have valid email address for, telling them to write to me directly if desired. Or you could not give out my name.
3. Improvement/Upgrade. Here I am not sure if there is such an option, but if some cash would help, is there a better way for you to post my ramblings? If we had an actual website, with my name for additional info? I do not know; I am just throwing that out there.
