Back to Blogging

One of the reasons I created this new blog, over a year ago, was to let go of the old and to get rid of some blogger stalkers who apparently had nothing better to do than post nasty, anonymous comments and make commentaries on my life. I actually didn't let a lot of people know I had gotten a new blog, because I had a pretty good idea of who these people were and I didn't want them following me (and really, how sad and pathetic were they, anyway?!).

But, in that process, I think I became a little hesitant in posting about my life and the things going on, and instead just let this blog become superficial, and lately, become mostly about my scrapbooking and photography projects. But, I have been missing the little bit of therapy that writing on a blog provides. And also, because it used to be my way of journaling and documenting my life, and I don't do that enough in my own personal journal.

So, I have decided I am back to blogging! I mean, everyone else gets to whine and complain, er, I mean, write about whatever they want on their blog, so I want to get back to that as well. I hope that I don't get any nasties coming out of the woodwork, but, well, there you have it.

I will still post photo and scrapbook projects, but I will also try and add some substance.

I already have some things planned. I want to talk about friendships (as they've been on my mind a lot), and simplifying one's life. And, I really, really want to continue my Stargate fanfic, because I need to finish it. I have too many unfinished writings. My problem with the fanfic, is ... I'm a little stuck. I have quite a bit more written than I have posted, but I am stuck where I currently am. I don't know how to get where I want next, and think that I may have to do some rewriting of what I currently have (but haven't posted) to get there. SO, that's one of the many reasons I've fallen behind on that. (Maybe I need a Beta read that isn't Brian. ^_^)

So, bloggie friends, there you have it. I can't promise my regularity of posting, but I can promise more substance in the future (and maybe I can get a few more comments out of it too, as I do like hearing from you!).

You know, when I got the idea to go and do Throwback Thursday, I looked through my diaryland archives and it took me almost 2 hours to find something that wasn't crap or all about whoever I was in love with at the time. Good gravy, no wonder my mom hated my blogging! But when I got into the shorter form of Tumblr, something happened and my writing became less verbose, more to the point, and kind of better. And even more therapeutic. I'm just saying that because I'm starting to really appreciate the therapy and growth that is blogging. And I've missed you! It's not easy to blog married because there's so much stuff that we shouldn't write about that is private, but there's a happy groove, and now that I'm not always blogging about a boy, I'm actually getting to know myself even better. Hrm, maybe that's a post in itself? Anyway, what I mean is YAY!!!

*joins the happy cheers* Looking forward to seeing more of you on here.

Also, I love being a beta reader, if you ever need some fresh eyes on something. I don't know how /helpful/ I'll be, since I don't edit a lot, but I'll do my best.

Gabby,
I just found you through RocketGirl's re-org (I figure any reader of hers is someone I'd want to read ;). Since I've only been here a matter of moments, I can't give a whole lotta input other than that I appreciated your refleciton on the proper use of/place for blogging and look forward to future posts. Also noticed in your bio that you're a free-lance proofreader? I have recently had my second child and am hoping to be able to contribute to our family income without working outside the home... with a BA in journalism, and a passion for proofing (other's work -- not so much my own;), you can count me jealous! How did you get into that? Do you have tips for getting started?
