I protect posts for many reasons. Sometimes, they are especially intense in terms of the content, and I would rather readers not stumble across them. Most of what I write is fairly intense anyway. Sometimes, they are written by dissociated parts, and I don’t want their private thoughts read by total strangers who are really interested in researching way to die for a book they are writing. Sometimes, the posts are just more personal.
If you are interested in reading the password protected posts, you can. Just comment and I will email you the password.
