Writing for an audience...

This is something I haven't done in a long time.

In some ways, it's different when you write a journal entry in your diary and when you write one for your blog. In your diary, it's almost always instinctive. The flow isn't necessarily smooth, the thoughts you start with aren't necessarily pursued, you don't even have to finish it when you don't feel like it. When you write in a blog, well, you're still honest about your feelings and what you think. The main difference is you're technically writing for an audience. You want people to understand what you want to say. To do that, you must first fully understand your topic and find the best way of communicating it.

Reading through old blog entries is always fun. It always makes me miss the time when I wrote about absolutely everything - or at least a whole bunch of things and tried to capture experiences thoughts and emotions through words.

No, this is not my Good Friday reflection. That one's in my private journal hahaha. And well, no one's really going to read this because my blog's extinct but I just felt like doing this now hehe.
