weetanya brought this up in her LJ some time ago, but it's something I'd been wondering about as well. I just wonder . . . how much do you feel like you're "performing," or writing for other people? Is your journal just for you, and whoever reads it does so at their own risk, as it were?
What do you consider LJ to be for you, personally? Is it . . .
A private diary
A message board
Some combination thereof
None of the above (please post comment with your thoughts)
