Why I've Gone Friends-Only: It's Not You, It's Me

So, I decided to make my past entries friends-only. I have a good reason. Some of you will think I'm nuts. Some of you won't. I haven't been able to write much, lately. Having a baby will do that to you. Naptime? Not really long enough to get stuff done and get stuff written. Anyway, now that the Little One is a bit older, I'm finding a bit more time and, as I've sloooowly gotten back into the swing of writing, I've found that, maybe, just maybe, I'd like to try writing as a more serious venture. Like, maybe there's something that might be publishable? And, right now, what I'm drawn to most is memoir. So, some of the things I've written about in years past might be a jumping-off place for something that I might want to publish. And, since putting stuff online publicly is, to some, considered "publishing," I need to not do that so much. So. Yeah. Like I said, probably nuts.

I'm pretty sure no one who isn't my friend is reading this anymore anyway.

It's not crazy to me! I tend to go back and friends lock all my previous posts after two or three months. I still want to be a teacher some day and I'm sure the school systems have people who will comb over my blogs...

My blog has been friends-only for a while. I just think it's nice to have some boundaries on who reads.

I always read your posts when I read, which is sadly not as often these days.

Not related, and for that I apologize.

I don't know you, but I think I'd like to forge a friendship. I followed your link here from the Teetotaler Manifesto blog post on The Practical Free Spirit. I'd like to start a Facebook group or something. Just trying to round up some like-minded people to get started. If that's not too crazy weird, please email me, or find me on FB! fairlyoddblu at gmail

I'm sorry if there was a private messaging option and I missed it. I'm not very familiar with LJ.
