going (mostly) friends-only

Thanks to the wondrous [ profile] hidejournal, I've taken my journal mostly friends-only.

For the moment, everything is friends-only. Eventually, I'll finish working my way through the FIVE YEARS OF ENTRIES (!!!) and (maybe) make some stuff public again.

Over the past few months, I've become a lot more aware of what I've put out in a public venue and how some of the more private thoughts might not be best shared with the entirety of the internet.


If you're a friend of mine and you only see this post, log into LiveJournal to see the rest! If you don't have a LJ, then sign up for one and let me know your username and I'll add you. If you're not interested in signing up with LJ, then just wait a bit and things will hopefully appear publicly again. Alternately, if you utilize OpenID, then comment to this post and authorize yourself - you'll get approved by me and then can see everything again.

See you on the flipside. :)

Edited to add on July 3, 2006: Whoops! Er, I guess I should allow non-LJ folks to reply to this post in case they need to reach me. Anonymous replies will be screened. if you use this as a way to harass me, I will delete your reply while rolling my eyes. Be nice!

Further update on October 8, 2007: I've gone ahead and made everything private. LiveJournal now has a utility that allows Paid and Permanent members to batch change the privacy settings on a journal: . As a bonus, it doesn't erase your tags like [ profile] hidejournal.

Remember: I'm glad to add new people - I don't bite! :)

What a great utility ... I've been having the same "awareness" lately. Thanks for sharing (the link, and your thoughts!).

Although I can't really say that we're "friends" I've been following your journal for eons (or, about 4 of the past 5 years...)

No - I'm a JJ fan who, having stumbled across your lyrics site a few years back, was intrigued by your library chick site and the journal that had been there. It caught my attention, as I too have many of the same likings/personality traits. That being said, you can check out my own web sire at I'm a 43 year old married man with two kids living in suburban north-central NJ... definitely a benign interest in your journal. Like you, I am a Libra (10/20/1962), worked in two libraries while in college and actually started to pursue a masters in Communication ans Library Science at Rutgers back in the early 90's (but that's a story for another time...) I'm a big-time Sox fan (although I'm originally from Philadelphia, I'm a closet New Englander - my wife and I have been traveling up the the White Mountains of New Hampshire for over 10 years, and would move there in a heartbeat if the right job opportunity came along.) Also, like you, I was inspired last year (the day after Easter, to be exact) to drop a few extra pounds, and am down 40 pounds since then - I've been very excited for your own perseverance and I congratulate you on your own weight loss!

I'm in IT for a major pharmaceutical in Princeton, and I admire your tech-savvy. In fact, it was through your journal that I came to know about the web-hosting provided by Dreamhost, and switched my hosting over to them a few years back. Similarly, some of the articles posted in your journal I have been inspired to include in my own (the JJ and William Shatner video, the iTunes meme, and the Flickr blog, for example.)

On any given day, I'll check out your journal just to see what is going on and perhaps gets inspiration to check out something new and interesting, in a similar way the I check out David Pogue's column in the NY Times - I never know when something really cool is going on that I wouldn't want to miss!

Anyway, I gush...

Long time reader...uhh..never commented. I can't bear to sign up for one more service/site/user name and password combo. I do miss reading about your escapades in NYC.

Hey, I know you! I came across your journal via [ profile] maliceangst but as soon as I saw "prospect heights" among your interests, I began to suspect that I'd met you at Soda. All the cool librarians are on LJ!

I think you're right, I think we have met! It's such a small world in Librarian Land.

Too cool. :)

Hi there!

Just following the breadrumbs from BBS-land... Thought I'd see what I could find out about ya HERE - I seem to be finding more and more librarians - it's some sort of omen, but I'm not sure which!

Hi! I've added you, by way of random eljay search.
