I got the domain name http://BiographyJournal.comseveral years ago and set up a multi-use blog. I’d toyed with that setup using various scripts and settled on WPMU. I left it running a while and had a journal for a new dog we got so the previous owners could see how he was doing. But after about a year there were no active users other than spammers, who packed the thing full of annoying links. I shut it down and focused on other things.
But the idea remained intriguing.
Most blogs are simply people giving their opinions about current events. I saw the blogging platform as a way to journal ones life. The last week I cam across a blog written by an amazing American girl who’s adopted 14 kids in Uganda and lives there raising them. I tried to read her blog from the beginnign to try to get the full scope of the story, but she uses BlogSpot which does not lend itself to reading blogs in that way. It was pretty difficult to keep up with where I was.
That’s when I decided to re-open http://BiographyJournal.com. It may sit empty again, but I want to at least make the effort to offer a platform geared more to journaling than just blogging. I’ve already added dozens of themes and lots of plugins, many that I’ve tweaked (and unfortunately lost some of the work when upgrading a plugin)
Check it out and see what you think and offer suggestion that may make the focus (journaling) work better.
