Odd as it may seem, great struggles such as the one you can see emerging from my journals are not always visible to the participants.

Much depends on what people dream in the secrecy of their hearts.

I have always been as concerned with the shaping of dreams as with the shaping of actions.

Between the lines of my journals is the struggle with humankind’s view of itself — a sweaty contest on a field where motives from our darkest past can well up out of an unconscious reservoir and become events with which we not only must live but contend.

It is the hydra-headed monster which always attacks from your blind side.

I pray, therefore, that when you have traversed my portion of the Golden Path you no longer will be innocent children dancing to music you cannot hear.

About My Blog

I started my blog back in the year 2007 on Windows Live Spaces as a place where I could share things from my personal life with people I know, but that idea failed because almost no one seemed interested and so I started using my blog mostly as a dream journal instead because I dream almost every night so that provides me with something to blog about each day while also allowing readers to learn some things about me because even though dreams are fictional they often contain things from our real lives; and then I moved my blog to WordPress.com when Windows Live Spaces got discontinued by Microsoft.

You can view any of my blog posts in order from newest to oldest on my Home Page (Front Page), and you can also use the widgets in the sidebar or footer for various purposes; and the cookies on this blog are handled by WordPress.com’s Cookie Policy.

About Me

Hello, I am John Jr, welcome; I try to stay anonymous online so I can not say much about myself, but you can learn more about me by reading my WordPress.com Blog and viewing my Gravatar Profile and checking out my post called John Jr’s Family Tree DNA Family Finder Genealogical DNA Test Results .

Blogging Advice

I recommend following WordPress.com News, following The Daily Post and possibly participating in their Blogging University and/or Prompts & Challenges and/or Community Events, following WordPress Tavern, reading Learn WordPress.com, searching on WordPress.com Support when you need help with something on WordPress.com, contacting the WordPress.com Staff for help using their Contact Page or by emailing them at help@wordpress.com, and getting help from the WordPress.com Community by using the WordPress.com Forums.

I recommend blogging something at least once a week, regularly previewing new free WordPress.com Themes, using a Custom Menu on your blog with several links (like a link to a Home Page, and a link to an About Page that also has a contact form and an archive index on it) and a Social Links Menu, updating your Gravatar Profile, updating your Account Information, replying to most comments on your blog and sometimes commenting on the blogs of those who comment on your blog, enabling Likes and Comment Likes and Share Buttons on your blog, connecting your blog to your social networks with the Publicize options, and consider using some of these widgets (Follow Blog, Top Posts & Pages, Recent Posts, Recent Comments, Categories, Search, Blog StatsArchives, Posts I Like, Google Translate, and Gravatar Profile).

The End

Thank you for visiting my blog, and have a great day.

The foundations and pillars are gone, fallen houses remain [a fallen house remains], as the survivors crawl away divided and lost, until the day that they die; and fade away… fade away… fade away.

  1. Your About page is really helpful. 🙂

    I was wondering what your thoughts are on having to manage 2 different blogs? I’m sure you noticed I had https://imawarriorprincess.wordpress.com/ and https://missfortitude.wordpress.com/

    I’m thinking of just merging them into one, although I already have some followers and comments on each. I initially thought it would be good to separate a blog with my dream journal and literary pieces and another with more personal ideas.

    But as I grow into this community, I’m starting to feel it would be better to have a distinct identity on my blog (to avoid any confusion and have the followers and comments in one place instead of 2 different sites)

    What do you think?

    1. Hello Missfortitude,

      Thank you for the compliment, and if you have any suggestions for my About page and/or blog please do let me know. 🙂

      Yeah, I noticed that when I clicked an link in your menu under your About page, thank you for asking for my opinion on this.

      I have met other bloggers in the past who have also struggled with this, I usually recommend managing just one blog which is usually easier on the author(s) and readers, but I do let them know that everyone is different so several blogs may be better for some people; but in my opinion one blog is usually enough for most bloggers (more than 50%), but I am not familiar enough with your blogs or goals for them to make a more detailed suggestion than that though.

      I hope that helps, and thank you for commenting.

      -John Jr
