why am i here?
Blogs and Facebook and Twitter. They're interesting. I put a lot of one-way stuff on them. People reply to facebook the most, twitter next, and here rarely. Accessibility? Or having it put in front of you more for the other two places than for here, where you most likely explicitly check. It affects how you use them. This, and another work-centric blog, have become more self reflective, but in a deliberately filtered way. They are thoughts that might be interesting to someone else, but are more relevant to me. The act of publishing them coerces me into being more organized than I would be in my journal. Half the reason to write is to deliberately reflect; the other half is the act of writing. It keeps your chops up, as they say, whoever they are. Facebook and Twitter writings are more specifically for the entertainment of others. Perhaps it's good not many have found their way here, as it would change the nature of the text.
In all cases, you're hearing from a deliberately managed character, of course.
