Welcome to your SNL Weekend RAC Update! Please welcome your guest hosts, Tiny Fey and–

(What?  We couldn’t get Ms. Fey and Mr. Fallon?!?  Why the hell not?  Budget concerns?  Mr. Fallon wanted to be paid in salmon? Okay, okay, you’ve got a point there…all right, give me two seconds…)

Welcome AGAIN to your Non-SNL Weekend RAC Update! Please welcome your host…..me!  Aunt Bethany!

Let’s get started!

Weekend RAC #1 was completed early Saturday morning before the clock struck 11 AM.  I wasn’t ambitious in my efforts, nor was I up at the crack of dawn scouting out Salvation Army buckets.  Nay, dear readers, the inevitable happened again:  I was stood up by a student for a voice lesson, yet AGAIN.

And there’s that line…

In the world of blogging, there is always a tricky line which we bloggers must choose a side on….

Pick a side...

Uncle Lewis: Do you mean choosing whether or not you’ll post nudie photos from last year’s Christmas party??  When you drank too much eggnog and lost your Depends?  ‘Cause I definitely know which side of that line I’m on!

Uncle Lewis, put down that 5th can of Yuengling!  You’re cut off for the night!  I will make you sleep on the couch again!

I, of course, was not talking about the nudity line, much to Uncle Lewis’ chagrin.  I was, in fact, referencing the delicate line of anonymity which exists in the blogging world…a line which inevitably forces all bloggers to answer the question:  will I or won’t I keep my blog a secret?

I have been commandeering the Captain’s Chair here at Miracle on 32nd Street for over a month now, and have upheld the decision to keep my blog private from friends and family members, save two people.  No one outside of these two people has any knowledge of my blog, my writing, or my RAC quest.  Trust me, it has been a decision that I’ve continually pondered over and over again.

I can obviously see the beauty of telling everyone  and anyone you know: site stats sky rocket, you have more comments than you know what to do with, and you receive recognition from those closest to you.  There have been many a web-browsing session where my mouse cursor lingered slightly longer over my Facebook status box.  It would be so easy to tell EVERYONE about my blog, I thought.  Just a few swift keystrokes, a mouse click, and boom…instant publicity.  Tempting, ain’t it?

Ohhh, Andy...

See, they even allowed blogs at Shawshank Prison…
