journaling and all that jazz(part 2 of journal series)

Because I promised, I delivered.

The memoir mentioned in the previous post will NOT be published here just to clarify I am not sure at this point in my life that it will ever be published, now it lays stored neatly away in a word document along with my journal on my memory stick. Let me make a few things clear, journaling to me is not blogging. Where I see my blog as highly public and an outlet to ask questions and work together as a collective in coming up with a common solution, maybe inaccurate but at the very least a common understanding of who we as a unit as a team got to where it is we then stand. That introduction sounds far to much like the doctor patient relationship, which in truth is what I am trying to convey, a stiff cookie-cutter scenario and that worked well.

Blogging

My point is this: I started to blog because there wasn’t a lot (that I could find) that represented the middle of the road and thus how I perceive myself, well at in this time. In closing this brief blog report I would like to share with you my monthly stats to date

December 2009:721

January 2010: 1,598

February 2010 (to date): 1,795

Journaling- why I do it

My journal is my private sanctuary for lack of better wording; it has helped me through those moments when I didn’t want to talk to a sole about whatever was going on in my head! It has helped me through those moments that I feel were unjust (wheather they actually were or not)

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled. You can follow her on Twitter or Facebook

    I agree with you. There are things that should be kept private and those things belong in a journal (or diary). Blogging is for communal interests, stores, and sharing. All very different than personal journaling. Sometimes I write something in my journal that I think would be funny, entertaining, or helpful to someone else. Those are the entries that may go from my journal to the blog.

    The “middle of the road” aspect is interesting, as well as that feeling (and reality) of not quite belonging to one category or another, or belonging to multiple categories.
