I've had this blog/online journal since 2001. When I first moved to L.A., it was to keep everyone back in Ohio updated on my exciting new adventure in Hollywood. Then it became a soapbox from which to rant and rave about anything and everything. It also became therapeutic as I worked through some inner demons a lot cheaper than a therapist would charge.
It hasn't been without it's up and downs. I've had harassing hurtful anonymous comments, jealous people who have tried to hack it, stuff like that which made it less fun at times. For the most part though, it's just been a way to express some of my thoughts and feelings.
That is my "why" in the "why are you journaling"
