~2009 I started blogging on this
website.. I've kept journals of some sort forever - drawing, photos
- , so blog followed naturally. It presented a personal challenge to
be fearlessly (but discreetly) frank about what was on my mind.
Stream of consciousness helped keep an eye out for
redundant/worrisome thinking. Sometimes caused issues - potential
lover confused by unfinished thoughts, friends learned stuff maybe
they wish they hadn't - used it to
work out *a lot* of stuff!
When my Frida with gun went viral, folks overnight found & pulled my
written thoughts out of the blog and used them in debates regarding
whether I was a good or bad person. I learned that thousands of
random strangers reading my relatively private thoughts, did not
hurt - much less kill me.
Not sure if anyone still looks at it - I preferred not to know - years ago
a couple of guys let me know the frankness helped them feel less
alone, Gil used to read it daily - it's been really boring lately
(IMO) as I deal with job loss/hunt - yuck.
Anyway, I've decided current issues are best dealt with privately, so will
keep journaling but not post.
Gonna refocus angrylambie on my photos & job hunting.
If you've ever read any of this stuff, I hope it had some value for you.
