Categorising Thoughts

 Because I use my twitter feed for business purposes, I am trying to reduce the number of howls into the void that it contains. 

I am allowed a little howling, as a treat, but I also put an app on my phone that lets me just write some plain text into a file. I start by putting the date, and then if I have any thoughts that I want to decant out I write them in there. 

It is great, because it allows me to look at how my mood is doing and also prevents my twitter feed being alarming.

What is the category of thought that goes here? No-one reads blogs any more and I am not actively promoting this content. 

Longer thoughts go here. I hope I have more long thoughts.

I hope to write here more often

Do you remember what it was like when you were first on the internet?

It was different to how it is now. And I was younger then. 

My first idiot forays into being extremely online are thankfully lost in the churn of the pre-2.0 age. Possibly you can find them in the wayback machine. I don't know. I haven't looked.

Anyway we've all done a lot of living since then, and I certainly hope I've learned to be better and consider my place in the world and write less, but be more considered when I do.

I've reverted all the content in the old blog to draft and hope to write here more often. I set the last remnants of the old LJ to private last month. Should probably delete all of these things, delete the facebook, delete the twitter, but it's like burning diaries isn't it? 

I think this is the 6th or 7th instance of hope that I will write here more often.

I hope that I write here often enough that it doesn't need the 'I hope to write here more often' tag every time
