Journals and Blogging

I’m told that writing a journal helps you to remain positive in your job search. I’m not completely convinced about that, but I can keep an open mind. I have maintained this journal for over ten years now. I started keeping the journal regularly in 1994, august 29 of that year to be exact. I am not sure what prompted me to do that, I’m only glad that I did. I enjoy it. Then the blogging sensation came along and I resisted for a long time, that’s why I haven’t been blogging that long and usually whatever I blog about is in the journal, but it isn’t the entire entry for the day.

That’s because most of what I write is stuff that I don’t think people would be interested in reading. As an author, albeit an unpublished one, I feel that I should focus on my potential readers, which is why I censor my blog entries. Sometimes the blogs are a culmination of journal entries. I can look over what I wrote in a given week, copy and paste it into a new document, edit it so that it all hangs together and then I publish it to my blog. Too many people just write what they want to regardless of whether anyone is interested. That’s ok, but I would like to think I either inform or entertain with my blog. I wonder if anyone is reading it.

My blog is very small, I doubt if I have many readers, if I have any at all. It’s difficult to tell without feedback, but it doesn’t matter. I enjoy writing in my journal, which no one reads, and the blog even if I don’t know that anyone is reading it. I have the outlet and that’s the important thing.



I am not one who is comfortable talking about myself but here goes. I enjoy writing, family history, and reading. I decided to do this blog because I wanted to try something new. I decided to make it a weekly blog because I wasn't sure that I could keep up with a daily one, and monthly seemed like I was writing a magazine. I think I did ok with my choices. You'll notice that there are not a lot of graphics on my site. That's because there are graphics plastered everywhere on the Internet and those sites sometimes take forever to load. This blog is a place where you can kick back, relax and be ready to be amused. At least I hope I willbamuse you. This blog is on a variety of subjects from my ficitional cat agency, the FFL, which is monthly, to instructional blogs to editorials, which are my opinions only. I admit that I don't know everything and could be wrong -- I frequently am. Now, stop reading about me and read what I have to say!
