Change in LJ, for me
Long ago and far away susandennis set me up with LJ as another thread in our relationship. Since I was running a business my time slice for journaling of any kind was limited and my interest in MORE human interaction than what I already had on a daily basis was even more limited.
But now I'm no longer running a business and my daily human interaction is sparse. Good word, sparse.
I was rightly concerned about what I said and who read it when people's opinions pretty much directly affected my bottom line. So I had my LJ locked down to just a handful of readers the most important of which was always my sister. But now I've got so few IRL interactions I thought I might as well open up to the full panoply of viewership. My default is 'visible to all' now.
