As anyone who stumbles across my entries (such as they are) can tell, I’m new to the concept of an online journal or blog. I’ve kept a personal journal sporadically, always beginning with the best of intentions. Eventually the journal peters out into a To Do List or informal calendar, rather than remaining a place to write my thoughts, feelings, etc. I’m kind of wondering if this will be an electronic version of the same.Beyond that, I’m a little worried about TMI. Yes, too much information. In the relative anonymity of the internet, it becomes easy to spew stuff that normally would be held in, or maybe only verbalized to a few people, or even written solely in a journal entry never to be read by another human being. I don’t want to rant about politics: they permeate everything, since I’m in the DC Metro area, so I’d like this to be a politics-free zone. I’m not sure that’s entirely possible, but I’m going to try. Social commentary? I don’t imagine that I “know” the best way to live my life, so it’d be pretty presumptuous for me to write entries criticizing how others live their lives. I guess what I’m saying is that I’m having a hard time figuring out what to put here. I’ve written and deleted several entries. It’s harder than I thought to snark on something without putting too much of myself into it. Maybe surfing more blogs and journal entries will help. Maybe this will end up being just an online counter of the books I’ve read. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
