If don't know me well, my website is a better place than here to start if you want to understand me.
I've decided to use this blog for more personal posts than what I post elsewhere. These posts will probably be mostly visible only to those on my lj friends list. I don't expect there will be many people who will take an interest in reading these posts, but I'll probably be flattered if unexpected interest in them develops.
I don't intend for my lj friends list to bear any necessary relationship to who I consider a friend (or even whose posts I read). It will just be a group of people to whom I've granted access, and I don't plan on being very restrictive about granting strangers access. I'll probably accept anyone who asks, tells me how they found me here, and who has a profile (here or elsewhere) indicating they're not totally clueless.
