I enjoy writing my journal. JohnD Fitzgerald read my blog and mentioned to me that John D. Rockefellar and Henry Ford kept jounrals, but JohnD feels it has become rare since the introduction of the computer. When I was young I kept a diary, but I lost track of it when I had a family to take care of. In fact, I destroyed my journals because I felt they had no significance in my life.
When I wrote for that unamed media conglomerate, I wrote daily journals and I used the same style as my earlier diaries. It brought me feedback, mostly positive from all over the world. If there had been any future in that project, I would still be doing it today. My early style had to be adapted and my editiors would beam me in various directions, but it was a positive experience. Unfortunately, over the years I’ve lost clarity on the rules of grammer and punctuation and seem to be using punctuation more creatively than even in the past.
In the recent past, I’ve been making flybys at Second Life related blogs and specifically the blogs of in-world friends, including Mermaid Dairies. Then a couple days ago, when I was shutout of SL, I did some in-depth reading of about a dozen blogs. And I think I’m hooked on many of the blogs I read, including BigD, Kimala, Crighton, Blissie, Joonie and others. (All of these blogs are listed in my new “My Blogs List” in the right-hand column).
Currently, I have ten blogs in my list, but I’ll be adding several more as I get more familiar with their content. I prefer blogs that focus on Second Life because Yordie Sands is an avatar and that other person, the one who is not an avatar, well, she has her own life and a different kind of blog.
