|Further Adventures of the ST
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
Rather than bombard your friends page, here's another summary post linking to the last week's worth of entries. I may switch permanently to this format of journalling. I think I prefer typing up my experiences offline, then uploading them later.|
Day 11: Inspiration & observation (medium)
Day 12: The perils of staying in all day (medium)
Day 13: Plugged in, turned on, gone to tea (long)
Day 14: In the now (very short)
Day 15: Piss-up (short)
Day 16: Footie footie footie footie footie England England (long)
Yeah, I used to sort of sit and mull things over before posting, but then I ended up posting every day. Since I have this self-inflicted sense of obligation about answering Every Single Comment, it kind of made LJ into a daily burden. This way, I can set aside specific times each week to use LJ, rather than have it be something I must attend to several times a day.

Perhaps I ought to try doing this more often. It would probably improve the content of my entries.
It depends on what you want to use LJ for. If it's a daily distraction, then it's more fun to write a post off-the-cuff over the course of a day. I think I'd rather have it be a once or twice a week distraction, at least with respect to my own journal, in which I feel obligated to answer all comments. I don't mind reading my friends page every day and leaving comments here and there, but that doesn't take too long.
It's mostly a daily distraction now, but I'm not sure that's all I want it to be. Sadly, being cut off from any sort of computer for typing would mean hand-written stuff. And I'd still have to hunt down some means of retyping and uploading when not at work.
I do try to answer most comments, though there are some that aren't really needing answers. Lately I've been intermittent about it (and sometimes I delay because I need to sift through my thoughts to make a more relevant response), mostly due to brain fog.
So this is a very serious question. Next time I'm in London, can we meet or something? I don't know how far away you are or what, but it would be pretty cool.
Yes! That would be teh awesome. I live in North London, in Camden, which is still very close to central London. Whatever you want to do, let me know!
