blogging beyond

I'm not leaving, and I'm not sure exactly what the long term ramifications of this will be, but I have started a new blog in the "public" world. My new blog will be centered around things that do not seem to carry a lot of interest with people on this site (sports, video games, music) along with stuff that I may actually want to let people I know personally (crazy thought huh?) some general things in my life. By no means am I abandoning this blog. Besides, if I want something read by more than my immediate contacts, it will absolutely be posted here.

I'm guessing there will be some crossover between the two blogs, but this one must be kept, because as much as I like burning bridges, it is probably in my best interest to get out my initial emotional reaction in a spot where people I interact with on a day to day basis don't see it, and then figure out what a more intelligent reaction should be later.

Anyway for the 3 or 4 of you that read this blog consistently, if you want to follow me in the "real" world, search for a blog of a very similar name to this one, and should be mind.

I've found that the people blogging on here a lot different then "real" people. One gal I work with is a good example. I can tell her just about anything. I've told her about my blogging and how it has got me thinking so much. I told her I am going to do a blog about the word "I" and how it relates to me, etc. I told her I spent the entire drive to work thinking about "I". She just asked me what medications I am on. LOL Then later we talked about it some more, and she said she like the letter i. She likes the dot on it. Clearly me and her were on a completely different wavelength.

From reading you post it actually looks to me like you would be better off rather then blogging, but rather posting on bulletine boards, discussion groups, yahoo groups etc. They are better for specific topics. I am a bass saxophone player and belong to the yahoo group. There is about 250 of us in the group, and whenever anyone posts a comment it is sent out via email to all of us. It is great interaction between all 250 of us. Rather then one on one conversation like blogging it is group discussion. Any one and everyone can respond as they see fit.
