What do you write when you aren't inspired or full of a love of life? What do you write when life gives you an unexpected twist that makes it seem somewhat hopeless? I haven't written for a long time and when I have the topics have been upbeat... musings about things, but generally positive. Lately, though, my life has been a series of bumps and twists... good and bad these last five years. And I haven't written much. It's not that the last five years have all been bad. It's just that there's been a lot of bad sprinkled in there.. and then when it's been good I've been taking it all in and haven't written.
I never set out to make my blog a journal. And right now, although many use theirs for that purpose, I'm not sure if that is where I want to go with mine. I don't know if I want to have a public journal, even if I don't name people. But I do know that I miss writing and miss getting my thoughts and feelings out.
What do you think? Should a blog be used as a journal?
