After playing with this blog format with my political blog (Eyes On The World, linked from the right there), I've come to really like it. So I've decided to continue my journal adventures using this format from now on.
The biggest reasons for this are:
- It's part of a 'blogging community', which allows for increased public exposure through the 'Next Blog' click-through button at the top of most blogs. Increased public exposure means more people possibly finding an interest in what I have to say.
- The days of the forum format being popular seem to be long-gone. (Click on 'My old journal' on the right to see that old format.) People rarely post on it these days, and the community aspect of it seems to have died. All those who had their own journals on it no longer post to it. Many have moved on.
So the experimenting and evolution continues. I've been journalling since 1998, and I hope to continue journalling for the rest of my life. But I'm open to changing the format according to the times. Everyone seems to be 'blogging' these days, and it's incredibly popular and interactive, so I've joined the 'sheep'. Well, I don't plan on BEING a sheep, but hey, when in Rome, do as the Romans do.
I hope you enjoy this format and that you bookmark this site and that you continue to come back to it in future.
