To Livejournal or to paper journal

Hi, I'm Nancy, and I've decided to create a live journal, mainly because I've become attached to reading stacy's journal on a regular basis and have found it helpful in my own life. There are times when I would like to respond to what's going on in her life, so this seems to be the best way to do it. Besides, it would be fun to make friends with someone as wild and whacky and risk-taking as she is. A catalyst, you will.

Besides stacy, I have discovered that there really are some interesting, thoughtful folks keeping their journals here.

If that seems voyeuristic and pathetic, well that's your opinion, I suppose.

The idea of keeping one's journal online is an intriguing one. I like the idea; yet do I want to air everything to the masses? (It certainly would have it's drama.) Look what it's done for stacy. In one sense, she and others have gained immensely. In another, she has suffered far more than any human should suffer from what I've gleamed. And I don't believe I want that added drama in my own life. There can be enough already as it is.

If I were to really take this live journal seriously and make entries on a regular basis, I can see that I could easily get addicted to it, and I would be spending far more time writing entries and not enough time trying to pursue some of my dearest passions, such as singing, dancing and creating art.

So, there you have it. A simple reason, yet truthful.
