well,after all the rush getting things sorted yesterday i thought i would post the entry i ws going to write next week. clear?? good lol it was rather a surprise to find my entry used yesterday,and caught me completely unawares. just want to say a couple of things about it.
to be asked if i would like to be guest editor was a great honour to me, 10 months journalling,part timer too lol it was a lovely surprise. you see,i have several different "lifes" on AOL, jland is one part,i talk to my friends on IM every night,i use chatrooms well 50s romance is the main one i use,i play poker every night,ive just joined a league,nice people good poker.no,not for money.lol. and email so journals tend to get rather neglected. and i feel a bit guilty. i have over 50 on my favourite sites saved now,i tend to try and read a few every night,i get alerts for around 15 or so,and those i do read when they are posted,but some i hardly get round to reading for ages. even the ones i picked i dont always read when they posted, but i do try and keep up.this made it so hard for me to pick my favourite ones. and if i am being completely honest,there are others i may have picked as well.but 3 are private,and 1 is off aol at the moment. not an easy decision to make by the way. not who to mention,that bit was easy. but who NOT to mention,that was the hard bit.
every journal is different,we all have our story to tell,our lives to make public,our thoughts and maybe fears to show. and when i read your journals,i think someone went to a lot of effort to write this. i know how hard it is sometimes to write something someone will read and hopefully enjoy,and comment on,and come back. so how can i pick 6 7 whatever?? but i had to. so why did i pick those journals?? as i said, i love reading those picked,and in one or two cases i think should be read by more people. but why didnt i pick YOURS? does that mean i dont like YOUR journal?? NO. if i have ever commented on your journal it means i have read it,and liked it enough to comment on. i had to make a choice. personally i think every journal deserves to be picked.
i enjoy wriying this lournal. it now means a lot to me. jland means a lot to me. thanks for making this very tired carer welcome. every commment is appreciated. take care all
