There are many things you could accuse me of, but one thing I am not is dishonest. This is why I would like to publicly express my gratitude to Automattic for promptly resolving the issues we encountered over the past week. It’s also why I’ve removed the previous blog post in fairness to them. The videos and ad functionality have been restored.

, Thanks Automattic and personal content, SnowCalmth

It’s noteworthy that my statement about no longer blogging still holds true. However, there is an important caveat. By this, I mean blogging in the manner I have been using this platform for the past years.

After separating the music section from this blog to introduce Calmth Music, I had intended to publish more personalized content than I have managed to do since the inception of this blog. Unfortunately, this intention remained unfulfilled due to my heightened concern, perhaps overly so, for internet safety. This is why I previously addressed the issue of parents oversharing on social media platforms like Instagram, a perspective I still uphold. Could I end up doing the same?

To a certain extent, the answer might be yes. However, unlike these parents who often share without their children’s permission, I will take the opposite approach. Everything I share will have the consent of my children. Moreover, my children will retain full access to this blog, just as they already have. This means they can express their opinions and remove anything they disagree with, even in the future. There may be content they prefer not to remain visible to future contacts as they grow older.

Maintaining my commitment to internet safety practices is crucial. Therefore, all personal content will be password-protected. The password for this content can be requested, but my primary audience will consist of people I consider friends or have had long-standing connections with on my social media profiles. Exceptions will naturally be made for those who are connected to my children. However, they will determine to whom they provide the password in that context, not me.

The reason for not making this content publicly available is that it will include photos, videos, and other personal content beyond mere writing. Consequently, photos, videos, and similar items will be hosted off-site to prevent unauthorized access through sitemap and feed crawling. Safety is paramount.

Furthermore, I wish to clarify that this does not mean an end to posts on psychological subjects. The intention to publish public content remains. My previous statement arose from the reality that without financial support, I cannot produce this type of content. I consistently ensure medical content is fact-checked before publication, involving compensation for medical professionals’ time. Without ad revenue, this becomes unfeasible, as I am unwilling to include donation options. My reasoning stems not only from the belief that content creators should not rely on donations but also from the understanding that I do not post content frequently or of high enough quality to warrant such support. At least, that’s my personal perspective.

With that said, I acknowledge that some visitors of my blog utilize my posts to share factual information about psychological conditions on platforms like Quora. While I am not a fan of Quora due to its reputation as a platform for trolls, it means a great deal to me to receive positive feedback and see people appreciate my writing. Moreover, there’s a common sentiment that most sources providing similar information lack a personal touch, a viewpoint I cannot dispute.

Before recent events unfolded, I was in the process of writing a blog post specifically about social (pragmatic) communication disorder. This topic was both requested and personally meaningful, as my daughter is affected by this condition. This reality fuels my determination to present accurate information on the subject.

Presently, many information sources about social (pragmatic) communication disorder tend to liken it to autism spectrum conditions while omitting the behavioral components. Although not entirely incorrect, these sources often inaccurately include some autism-related behavioral symptoms that are not relevant to social (pragmatic) communication disorder. Misinformation abounds…

Yet, this isn’t the only issue. There’s also a focus on contrasting social (pragmatic) communication disorder with ADHD, without explaining the significance of this comparison. To be clear, the distinction doesn’t hold great importance. However, I recommend reading my forthcoming blog post to delve into this matter further, as I will thoroughly examine it.

In any case, this encapsulates what’s crucial to know for the present. The issues with Automattic have been resolved, personal content with password protection will be forthcoming, and I will continue publishing new blog posts as usual.
