Searching for meaning

I've discovered a few really amazing blogs lately, blogs that captivate me, that intrigue me, that make me think.

And then I look here at my LJ, and I think, you know, THOSE blogs are what I wanted my LJ to be, but.. well. It just isn't. It's full of boring life details, quizzes, memes, and assorted garbage like that, with the occasional "meaty" post, but mostly it's really fluff.

I want to write something MEANINGFUL and the fact that I never do is driving me buggo.

I think about the things that matter to me. My faith. My family. My friends. Disability issues. Politics.

Disability blogs are done all over the place, and my God, some of them are just incredible. I don't think I have much to add to that discussion other than "Hey, see what THIS guy wrote".

Politics, I'm not going to write about politics. It matters to me, but I'm poorly informed, although I read the news like a junkie shoots smack.

My friends and my family are not of universal interest to the world.

Which leaves my faith. And my main issue about blogging faith stuff? Well, there are several.

1) SO many of my friends are pagan/atheist/agnostic and not interested in reading about Christianity.

2) If I managed to keep up with a religious themed blog in another account or at blogspot or whatever, it would invariably draw the kinds of Christians that give the rest of us a bad name. The minute I posted something about loving gay folks, for example, I'd end up being slow roasted over a pit of coals.

So instead, I give you Jenn's Journal. It is what it is. And I'm not happy about it.

  • Some ideas for using DW

    I'm finding I am using DW more than I thought that I would. There's two reasons for this. 1) They make it very easy to crosspost from them to LJ.…

  • For some reason

    When I imported my entries from LJ to DW, it added each post TWICE. ARGH! Oh well. I've got a doubly good backup of my LJ now, I guess. Now if only…

  • This is bad..

    I'm almost out of icon space on my LJ. Only 22 more to go. And this is why, while DW seems pretty nifty, I will not be leaving LJ. One: I'm not…
