Exploring The Others

You never know what you will find when you go looking.
I have been cruising around the blogging world - looking at what is out there.
I have found Chinese Women Dating; the documentation of a home under construction; consice thoughts on life; nearly pornographic poetry; stories of pet owners; World of Warcraft diaries; you name it there is a blog out there for it.

I am very new to the blogging world, but not new to journaling. I have had multiple journals in my life, frequently different ones going at the same time. I have a "book of happiness" that I started in my 30's because I wanted a creative outlet that was purely for recording happiness. Something I could share with others.
Most of my writing up to that point was a bleak expression of my depression. The Book of Happiness was an experiment in keeping track of what made me smile, who and what I loved and what I hoped for. These days my writing is mostly about what makes me happy. I would rather spend my mental time and effort on things I love, believing in and conjuring the best in life.
