poll: April post-every-day project

Poll #1389017 April post-every-day project

how do you feel about this posting-(nearly)-every-day thing I'm doing? (check all that apply)

it's annoying
it makes me feel closer to you
I can't keep up so it's harder to feel a connection
keep doing this forever OMG!
you don't reply to comments as much so I'm not sure you care about my response
it's interesting
you post too much/many of this kind of posts: ____ (fill in the blank -- comments-disabled posts, polls...)
it would get really old if you continued it indefinitely
I'm ambivalent (explanation in comment)

While I like the idea of post everyday for a month, I know that it can get very old very fast for everyone. Its nice for a while, but not a constant thing.

I replied with "It's interesting" because it was the closes thing you had to "It's fine." =D

My friends page is often very long and I read it in bits throughout the day, saving the longest and most interesting posts for my quiet, toddler-free evenings and sometimes even holding off reading them for a few days until I really have a chance to sit down and give the posts the attention they need. So whether you post once a week or seven times a week, I get around to reading them when I can... All this to say that it doesn't put me out any how much you post!

Whenever I'm scrolling down my friends list and come upon your username and one of your icons, I get really excited, Bel :)

I've posted ambivalent....I realise I'm the only one so far who did that!

So here comes my explanation: When I got to know you, it felt like you were someone really really special.....even though your not on my friends list, I follow your journal now and then.

Now that you posted more about your everyday life, I come to realise that you struggle with every day problems too.

I do not regret that part really, because it helps me in my development and I still follow your journal, with interest. I guess I've lost some wrong ideas, and have won new insights.

About having "normal" problems and people around me who have "normal" ones too: I struggle with that a lot. I do rather like the extraordinary. I know it is something I'd like to overcome though.

So, the more I write, the less I find it ambivalent just good and pure and honest.

I'm not the kind of person who thrives on "middle ground" relationships; I love being very, very close to people. Posting frequently helps me feel close to you. :) Not that it's necessary for you to post every day for me to feel close to you, I just know that I'm enjoying it.

One of my personal goals is to forge more intimate relationships in my life. I recognise in myself that I have a lot of insecurities and self-esteem issues, which have resulted in me struggling very hard to trust and share myself with people beyond my immediate family. Every time I feel closer to you, I feel like I want to share more of myself. And naturally the outer layers shed. I do so much enjoy reading your journal :)

I didn't vote because it's your journal. If you want to post daily, please do! I do read all of your entries, and it really does help us get to know you better. I don't feel it matters if someone posts once a week or once a day - what keeps me connected is that the entries dig deeper than "I ate mashed potatoes today." That may be fascinating to some, but it's not interesting to me. Your entries, though daily, are always filled with your thoughts. So please, post away by all means! I'll certainly be right here reading. <3

As someone who posts multiple times a day, I think it's great.

The important thing is how do you feel? I guess we'll find out after the month is up! There's no point in forcing yourself to write entries... but I find that writing about something on my mind clears my mind of clutter, especially if something is bothering me. Organizing of the thoughts.

You don't write about just anything for the sake of writing something once a day. So your entries are interesting and reveal more about yourself to me.

I said that I am ambivalent because I enjoy it, I'm totally cool with it, but I don't see any adverse effects if you also don't post every day. So....whatever makes you happy! The more there is to read, the happier I am.

I really enjoy your posts! They're interesting and well-written.

But I really think that a journal (whether it's a physical journal you write in or an internet blog) is ultimately for YOU, the person writing in it. And if you choose to show certain entries to people, then that's great, but I don't think it should matter what other people think about it. If someone thinks you post too much, they don't have to read it. You should post as often as you feel like. Whatever is healthy/good for you.

Just my two cents.
