Project 52: Writing More Here in 2010

I don't like neglecting my blog. That's why I'm joining Project 52!

As I said in my last entry, I feel bad about how lit­tle I update my site. Hell, I sorely need to update the About sec­tion and my link list. It’s hor­ri­bly out of date.

That’s why I’m join­ing Project 52. I WANT to write more here and more per­sonal writ­ing, ‘Im just so busy with work and because my work IS writ­ing, it’s hard to find the energy to ded­i­cate to my own site.

But it’s impor­tant. It’s impor­tant because it is a good out­let for me. For nearly seven years, I used my Live­Jour­nal as an out­let for my thoughts and feel­ings. It became more dor­mant about five years in, but that jour­nal con­tin­ues to be an archive of my life in col­lege and it was an impor­tant out­let for me to express myself, even for no one reading.

It’s harder for me to write more per­sonal entries now. More peo­ple know who I am, which is awe­some, but that also means that I feel like I have to restrain or hold back some of my thoughts (which is why I might start a pri­vate jour­nal again, that’s just for me). I guess I don’t have to, it’s just a limit of what you want to share. I’ve been pretty arms-length in some regards, but pretty open in oth­ers. I really want to just write more about what I’m feel­ing and think­ing and fuck what other peo­ple think. Like seri­ously, fuck it.

I’ll put a big dis­claimer that my blog does not reflect the thoughts or opin­ions of my employer and blah blah blah, but you know, it’s just time to get back to being able to write for myself. Write as catharsis.

So that’s why I’m join­ing Project 52. Because it’s impor­tant for me to write.

Out.

Christina,

I’ve got exactly the same issue, but not on the level you’ve got it. I write on my blog (joshchandlerblog.com), but rarely fit it in around 3 mil­lion other things I’m doing. I’m fully sympathetic!

Hope you get into a routine,

Josh

Christina, I have been a lurker at your site for a few years. I cant wait to read more about your daily rants and insights. You have a tal­ent for giv­ing very enlight­en­ing aspects of day to day “stuff”.

Keep it up.… Long live Film_girl.

Thanks for men­tion­ing Project 52. I think my writ­ing sucks, so I don’t do it. Only one way to change that… start writing.

Can’t wait to see what you put up here on the site.
