Blogging About Breakups


On Friday, The New York Times addressed the phenomenon of using the Internet and blogs to write about and process fallen relationships or take revenge on a disgraceful ex. The article notes:

For the blogger, the writing can be therapeutic . . . For some ex-spouses, revenge is not the point. Writing about divorce can be good for readership.

Of course, I can't help but think about the notion of the Internet as a tool for both revenge and therapy. Although I know that more than a few of us have taken revenge, is it OK to use the Web — where everything is easily and indefinitely accessible — to act out our personal vendettas? And though I always recommend journaling as a therapeutic method, I wonder if it's wrong to use a public venue for such a personal process. What do you think? Is the Internet really the place for breakups and divorces?
