I guess this journal is the leg they had to cut off when was I shot at Antietam. (What is with my random Civil War references? Jeez.) Instead of burning it, which would be sane and sanitary I keep coming back here and trying to strap it back on. It doesn't quite fit anymore either. Dang it. But I miss it. *hobbles around*

I kind of fell out of fandom when I was planning my wedding in 2004 and even more so when I started grad school in 2005. I started posting regularly at [ profile] imaginarycircus. I think some people never got the message that I was posting over there for the last two years. I was. It was kind of spotty and boring at best. Lots of wibbling about homework and writing.

So now I have two journals (three including [ profile] steelcage_match, and there is a new match. Analog vs. Digital!)

I never really saw the point (for me!!) of having a rl journal and a fandom journal, and somehow that it what I accidentally ended up with. I certainly blathered on in [ profile] ari_o about personal stuff, real life stuff. I guess I just didn't see that much of a division between my fandom identity and my real life identity. Now I sort of do because I don't really have a fandom identity anymore. All the recent posts about Phoenix Rising made me so angsty and full of longing. I wish I could have gone. But I was busy freezing my ass off and wearing itchy graduation robes. There was a lot of champagne afterwards so it isn't like I suffered.

I started [ profile] imaginarycircus because I felt like I was changing so much I needed a new journal. I also thought it would be nice to have a journal I could share with family and friends. The things is I was never able to leave the anon posting option open because of trolls. And last summer's upset kind of killed any urge I had to interact with people online at all until a few months ago when I started creeping back. I'm like a freakin slime mold.

I can't figure out what to do with these two journals now. I am not willing to let go of either of them. I wish I could smush them together into one thing. But maybe that wouldn't be a good idea. Many RL people have the [ profile] imaginarycircus journal link and it is probably a good idea to have a journal I can bitch about stuff in that is at least somewhat removed. Maybe? I guess there is nothing wrong with filters and flock.

Anyone have any advice on what to do with multiple journals? Is it annoying if I post in two journals? Is it annoying only if I post exactly the same thing?
