I started this blog on June 27 2005, so I've been doing it for around 5 weeks now – and enjoying it immensely! I love the ease of use of it.
Anyway, I've been doing this as a record of my life – and by 'this' I mean 'online journaling' – for almost 7 years now. I started in November 1998 and this has become the third version of the evolution of my online journal. (Second version here.)
As of today, I'm changing how I'm doing my online journaling.
For the past 7 years I've simply been recording events throughout the course of my life, analysing my life and my feelings, and trying to help myself grow. It's worked! But as the site has evolved, so have I evolved.
I'm at a point in my life now where I'm looking for something more than what I've been doing. Instead of being mediocre about my life, I've now decided to actually do something a bit more interesting with it.
As of just now I've changed the title of this blog from the boring "Alan's Journal" to "Life Through My Eyes". I've changed the description slightly to: An online journal about the adventures and philosophical musings of life through my eyes.
What does it mean? It means that instead of focusing on me and my internal development, I'll be focusing on people, places and moments in my life. Things that I experience and have opinions or feelings about… my unique perception of things that happen in my life.
Instead of being 'just a blog', I want this to be 'a popular blog'. Let's see how I go.
(Yes, this is practice for my writing, to make 'everyday events' just that little bit more interesting and exciting and humorous. I hope you enjoy how this develops.)
