A public journal, even if limited to friends, can seem an invasion of privacy to the other actors in my life. However, in the interest of fitting my views and actions into context to form a semi-cohesive whole, I am going to change some earlier entries that I made private back into access by friends only. Since I don't use the names of individuals in the posts, you'd have to know me to know who they are. And, if the individuals dispute the facts or possible motives that I attribute to them, they can post a comment!
Some intimate posts will remain or start as private, but I hope to make more regular journal posts and tweets.
