One more post for today that will mainly take effect after next week

So have I ever mentioned that I like things to be really organized and pretty, at least on my computer.  You know files all labeled and arranged nicely.  Games played have massive amounts of notes written about them even before I start playing them, strategy guide read 3 to 5 times before the game is even installed (not since the migraines, but pre-migraines that would always be the case).  Then when I play the games massive note keeping is made to make sure I don't forget things (I am starting to wonder if the need to do this, since SimCity 2000 came out may have been a sign of my eventual inability to remember much of anything).  Even when I had websites that I actually built, I would make sure labels for everything where very orderly and in some hierarchical structure that may or may not have really had any meaning to anyone beyond me.

Anyway, that all is supposed to be explaining why I am making a rather major, at least for me journal change.  Don't worry, the journal is not being deleted, none of the entries are being deleted and stuff will still be posted here.  Over the last three days I have been setting up a new journal for Sims posts over at iliveforsleep on DW because I was getting rather annoyed with how many things have been started here and then sort of left to the way side, posts that have nothing to do with Simming randomly thrown about, and basically I really wanted a clean start.  So I decided one of my New Years resolutions would be that I would not start something until I had finished what I was working on, as of the start of 2012.  I also realized that when I played the early Maxis games (SimCity and on) that I don't think I actually posted about it, so I wanted to redo that starting January 1, 2012 because, well, I don't remember it and pictures and blog entries really help me remember things.  A lot of this is in the profile information for the new blog, but basically, it is going to be a Sim only blog, no personal stuff will be posted there.  I just figured out today how to set up the cross posting so that anything posted there will be reposted here.  Also, stuff will be posted here that is not posted there because it isn't either a planning post or a game play post.  I'm trying to give myself a clean slate for 2012 to see if maybe I can get my game playing moving in the right direction again.

It is still going to be at least a week before I actually start using it because now that I have all of the setting figured out, I think, I now need to start planning how I am going to decide that I have finished the mastering each game, and actually write something out, and then get it copied to type form so it can be posted because I tend to last longer handwriting stuff even if I can't really read it later.  My basic plan is to play the games in order of release and post pictures from everything, even if it involves print screening it because I really remember nothing that I don't have a picture for.  My goal for the moment with that journal is to post once a month at least.  I would like to post once a week, but since it can be a week between computer uses sometimes, once a month is more likely.  I'll get it figured out eventually.  So if you are not on DW, you should still be able to comment on the cross posted stuff here, the new journal is because I figure it would make me happier and more likely to try and stick with it, if I had something nice pretty and new/clean to work with.  If you do have a DW account, let me know, I'll add you to my reading list, or whatever it is you are supposed to do there.
