I was a frequent writer until the summer of 2005. At that point I decided to go on a hiatus and somehow never had the same relationship to my journal again. Seems like once the volume went down, I suddenly second-guessed everything I wanted to write -- is this too trite? too plaintive? Anyway, between then and now, a lot of people have abandoned long-form and moved to twitter and facebook statuses. Those are good too, but not the same.
I am in the midst of resetting my journal. In August 2009 I set all the entries private and started going through and tagging them, reclassifying the security level, and otherwise cleaning them up. I have finished the beginning and the end, and I am down to about half the entries in the period of 2003-2005 remaining.
(One of the things I am cleaning up: I used to use a friends group when I posted "friends only" but this was inconvenient in several ways. I am now sticking to the default security options of public, friends, and private.)
