"Every loss and every love,
Every blessing from above,
Here I am, all added up
Oh, it's all right here"
A friend said this song reminds him of me -- "of all women, really" -- because we tend to keep so many of our experiences right here in our hearts and minds. Indeed, I'm guilty as charged; through the years I've assembled this collection of trivia, thoughts and memories to help me remember the good and work through the bad.
While this so-called personal site doesn't contain bank account numbers or my real weight (um, yeah, it's not *that* personal!), it does include the following sections:
True, the whole site is "about me," but that is what I've titled the series of facts and stats that are often used to put people "in a box." I've also added some #Quirks in an attempt to break out of said box.
#AboutMe #100Things #Likes #BeenThereDoneThat
Real answers to questions from a fictional interviewer
#FrequentlyAskedQuestions #WebmissHistory #WhereDoIFind #IsThatYouInTheBanner?
If the facts and minutiae listed in the previous sections are the Who and What, these journal entries fill in more blanks by adding Who Else, Why, How, and Huh?
#Blogged #SubjectToPunning #PreBlogMemories #DearDiary
Musings, scrutiny, preoccupation, or #PitOfRandom -- however you may classify them, this pseudo-newsletter is where I introduce the writings (reports, reviews, remarks, recollections...) that I have posted across the Internet.
#Previews #Portfolio #WebLibrary #ByLines #TwentySomething
