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 It’s hor­ri­bly out of date.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.
