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 It’s horribly out of date.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.

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,
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.
