lj cadence

yes, I'm ready to admit I kinda secretly have a livejournal cadence. because I love cadences so much.

what got me to do this was posting about livejournal friends, I was like hell how much am I posting in my livejournal about livejournal? that'll make it pointless pretty fast. I wanted to make sure I spaced those out. I've never liked posting about just one thing. during times in my life when I was absorbed in something, I tried to alternate - like when I had a baby, after the baby was more than 4-7 days old, that baby no longer got to be the sole subject of my journal. When I was working on my pilot's license, I tried to make every other post about not airplanes.

I realize lots of people say "this is MY journal, I will write about whatever I want to write about!" But it motivates me to get comments here. If it was truly just my diary, I'd save it in microsoft word on my hard drive, right? So I write for an audience.

And in a way, I am part of that audience. Maybe not today me, but future me. Future me is a lot like many of you. Reading from the outside, selective memory on what the heck's been going on, not wanting to hear ALL about a single obsession of the week, appreciating a mix of topics. When I look back on my entries five years ago, I am always happy to see that I mixed it up.

So if I'm unsure of when to schedule an entry, or just unsure what to write about, here's what it'll be:

Mondaycommunity, politics, world philosophy
Tuesdaywhat's happening at work, career, finance
Wednesdaymedia, movies, books
Thursdayinternet, livejournal, social media, cool links I found
Fridayfun/Friday 5/writers block/memes
Saturdaywhat's happening at home - the house, kids, husband, pets
Sundayevents of the week, some thing I actually did

I think the variety is why I enjoy reading your journal so much.

I am constantly amazed at how organized you are. None of my posts are this together. In fact, I don't even really post that such real noteworthy things. Mostly they are things that amuse me or momentary reflections.

The variety of your life is particularly noteworthy. You do so much in the course of a week that I am in awe.

Whatever you are doing, keep it up because I'm loving it.

Wow, I agree with this post up, down, and sideways. I don't have a cadence, but I think it's a super idea and I'm going to think about what mine could be.

If it was truly just my diary, I'd save it in microsoft word on my hard drive, right? So I write for an audience.

Amen. Speak it, sister! I've always said that, for me at least, writing is performance art. Back in medieval times (i.e., before the internet), I kept a journal and so did my sister. Three or four times a year, we exchanged journals -- not always simultaneously -- and the recipient sister always wrote back with comments. I had to have an audience.

I am part of that audience. Maybe not today me, but future me.

Many's the time I've prefaced a post by saying, You may not be real interested in this, but I need to remember when this event happened and how it happened. Unsupported memories are treacherous. FanSee, scurrying off to think about her cadence.

I for one always get excited when I see a post from you because I know the content is usually going to be interesting. I think I've told you before that you are the one who inspired me to start blogging in the first place like 15 years ago.

I like it. I see other people do this and I'm always super jealous because I seem to be completely incapable of being consistent enough to pull it off myself! ha!

Plus, I'm not even going to lie, my life really has been taken over by like 3 subjects and the rest has become nonexistent. That's something I plan to work on this year. *shrug*
