A friend is starting a public blog in response to her New Year's resolution. I really like this and it's something I've thought as well. That is that I should, and do, live a life of which I shouldn't be ashamed. I've hidden in this private journal for a while, not wanting certain past so-called friends to be able to catch up. That's juvenile, I think. What does it matter if they know what happened to me? But my second reason is sound. Sometimes I just need a sounding board, a place to sort my thoughts out logically and perhaps an insight or two from a friend. Even if there is no insight given, I'll have put it out there to those trusted few for review.

I get so annoyed these days when people don't get it. I don't even want to bother with sharing my side. Maybe it's a trained response after so much negativity in the past. Maybe it's from my personality of avoiding conflict. I don't know. Lately, I've felt justified in sharing my opinion, but then two seconds later I feel like deleting what I've posted and hiding from the world. I think I have been giving up on people too easily.

So I'm going to put up an outline here of daily topics. I reserve the right to make an entry private or to change the topic if there's something burning to get out. But I think if I can just pick up on any given day that will help things stay on track.

I like having a private forum as well, even though I don't utilize LJ as much as I used to. These days I send private messages to my friends, hoping they'll have the answers that I need.

I've been lucky, whenever I have done public-ish blogs, I've gotten a positive reaction. Random co-workers or family members approach me and comment on my words. When I worked at Cheesecake, I got compliments right and left, one of the reasons that I decided to study creative writing after all.

I love reading what you write, and can't wait to see how your blogging continues.
