It's strange - in a way I create my own tension, in that I have an outstanding topics that I want to write about, and feel determined to complete them. And yet when I know that my blog is up to date, I feel good, clean, as though my virtual life is in order and is supporting me in my concrete life. Plus I feel sad when I see months in LJ (Nov, Dec last year) when there are hardly any entries. I know then that I have lost the plot, that I have no space or time to unfold my personal dramas and make sense of them. Does anyone else feel like this? Or am I alone? Plus I like looking back at my blogs and reflecting on my life and decisions.
As I wrote in my post on resolutions for 2008 I am committing to writing each day in my blog. I cross post the links to blog365.com I blame beebarf for this, since she suggested it in a post!)
Why I am doing this? Because when I write regularly I feel better. I want to create small, interesting, pieces of writing. Less "this is what I did today" and more "why did I do that today and how do I feel"! I know that writing regularly helps me keep in balance. It helps me be more than just my job. It connects me to my online networks and I will comment on my friend's journals more often :-)
