I received a visit from Janet yesterday (thanks, Janet!) ... she's a new AOL Journaler over there at knit-a-polooza.  She requested I check out the site and find out what kind of knitting needles I am.  So I did.

Hmmm.  It's 4 months into the new year, and I haven't changed.  I took the quiz on Dec 4th which pretty much said:

You are interchangeable.
Fun, free, and into everything,
you've got every eventuality
covered and every opportunity
just has to be taken.

Every fiber is wonderful, and
every day is a new beginning. You
are good at so many things, it's
amazing, but you can easily lose
your place and forget to show up.

They have row counters for people like you!

... and this is the exact same results I received from the quiz today.  Maybe if I actually picked those knitting needles up once in a great while and  practiced ... bwahahahahahahaha!  I know, I shouldn't snicker evilly at myself; I should just jump in and do it. 

One good thing I did for myself yesterday was to start another journal ... just for me (sorry, I'm not sharing it).  I'm mentioning it here today because I think for those that are new to the concept of blogging, or journaling as AOL likes to call it, can benefit. 

I call my private journal "dee-sign" (thanks to the nickname Haley bestowed upon me), and it contains just what the name implies:  my notes on designing. I put three entries in there already that I can go into anytime I'm online and edit ... be it on my main computer, the laptop, or my hubby's sidekick.  It just struck me that in utilizing a single journal/blog, and by keeping it private, I can access it wherever I am, and I like that!  You might too!

Have a fantastic Sunday!

Congrats on the birth of your new blog!  Sorry you are keeping it private but I fully understand the reasons why.  While I had it, I enjoyed having a private journal.  I could be the true me in it and no one would know the difference.  When I'm down or frustrated or angry, the true me is sometimes not a nice person.  I like to keep that beast hidden, but I think as women, we all have our inner "witch" that sometimes needs to be released or we will blow up.  Keeps me from being TOS'ed too!  ::looking innocent, while I polish the halo::    Just some compu-advice for you - save your entries to disk just in case, whether you create the master on the hard drive and then copy it to an entry or you create the entry and then save the entry as an HTML file on your computer.
