Blog analysis

I have been thinking a lot about how I blog, what I blog, changing blogs, and all those sorts of things that go along with owning your own blog.

When I started this blog, I wanted to write about astrology. But... I need to write other things that have taken on much more importance in the last year. This involves more personal writing for my sanity. A lot of these things I want to write about just aren't appropriate for the world wide web. Even if they are appropriate, I'm not comfortable sharing them all. And that's what I need, a space to share all the feelings - comfortable and itchy.

I have a list of bloggers on my Google reader that I adore, most of which are fun, witty writers with an important overall message, "life is pretty great". I want to write like this, having a purpose for others. I could do that from time to time, but in reality, my writing is not at all like that. In fact, most of what I want to write about is downright depressing. And I don't need an audience for these kinds of thoughts, I just need an outlet.

I have another project in the making, a hand written journal which I'm actually thinking about blogging, writing things out and taking pictures. I am not sure if this hand written journal will ever really see the blog world, I'm pondering it as a side note.

Anyhow, I hope that my growing list of friends will motivate me to write more astrology. I would like to do this in addition to all the other plans I have for my future writing.

I would love to get some feedback on what kinds of things my readers are interested in hearing about from me, feel free to comment with suggestions. Thanks!

  2. A separate journal is a good idea.

    If you can convey a small part of your shadow without comprimising your integrity, remaining true to yourself, than I think you will have accomplished something.

    Can a shadow exist in the absence of light?
