Time to Look at Yourself

How would we see ourselves if we were to get to know ourselves through our own blogs? I made this generic, so people who use blogging services other than LJ can weigh in on this too.

Never. Once an entry is written, it's in the record.

Maybe on rare occasions I'll make a revision/deletion if I was way off the mark, but not without a very, very good reason.

When I took my own poll, I found myself unable to answer the first question properly. I think I tend to come across as somewhit whiny in my blog. I don't think I'm generally a whiny person, but I do think my blog fairly accurately reflects me. There's an incongruity or three here.
Before this talk about alliances, I would have answered absolutely. I'll admit the thought of alliances disgusts me, but I want to be a part of the game the next season. Then I'll start complaining when I get eliminated. :p
