Occasionally I wonder why I keep this journal. My personality and interests are so varied that there are probably very few people who are interested in all of and/or can even understand it all. Not all of those people even read what I write here.
A coworker of mine mentioned that he kept a journal on his computer. He had never heard of livejournal and thought the idea of a public journal was a bit odd. Nevertheless, he seemed interested (maybe he’ll read this some day?). But that got me to thinking. What is the allure in a public journal and why am I doing this anyway?
On one hand, I like to write ‘personal’ entries. On the other hand, I enjoy posting about a variety of topics that might appeal to people who might not know me or care who I am. Even so, the variety is so wide, there are probably few people who would appreciate all of it. I wonder, sometimes, if I should have several different topical journals. But as soon as I start contemplating that, I realize I barely have time for this one… *sigh* I guess I just enjoy sharing parts of me with other people (hence the public ‘home’ of my thoughts).
So I suppose I’ll be content to keep on posting here about, well, whatever suits my fancy. Unless, of course, someone has a suggestion. And if you do have as suggestion, be it some curiosity about me, or some topic you think I might have something interesting to say about, I’d love to hear it. I think up a thousand things to write about (and then never get around to writing about most of them), but it’d probably be more interesting if I wrote about things other people wanted to read 😉
Generally, I enjoy writing about travel, aviation, religion, politics, the Free State Project, New Hampshire, and music. But hey, I’m up for just about anything. What are *you* interested in hearing about?
