Just wondering????

Is there someone you would like to read your blog after you die?

If yes, have you given them a link, a password, some type of access?

Yes, I'd like for my children and grandchildren to read my LJ entries though I'm not certain they will want to and I've done nothing about that desire except a casual mention that I have a blog.

I have no desire for family and friends to read my LiveJournal.

The way life goes you'll probably end up being the one who has someone who will read yours. ;-)

True :-)

I would like it, yes, but would they? I'm doubting it. I imagine my daughter and husband reading every entry from beginning to end and I realize I'm dreaming.

I feel like you about my children and I know my husband woukd never look at it, but I've got a couple of grandchildren who jave already asked for my paper journals.

I probably don't qualify to answer because 99% of my entries are public BUT I, long ago, set up everything so that my brother has my passwords (or knows where to get them) to everything. If he goes before me, I have no backup and almost don't care what happens to any of it.

Well sure you qualify. My entries are public too. Yet, I kind of expected you wouldn't much care.

Mine is nearly all public - except for the very self-pitying stuff. Ha. And I would never want them to read that stuff.

I actual write it with the thought in mind that the family (kids and grandkids) could possibly read it someday. So far I think a few of them have glanced at it now and then but certainly none of them read it regularly. If they wanted to look at the tags with their names then they wouldn't have to read the whole thing to get something out of it.

Just the thought that my descendants will want to know more about me and the times in which I lived is a good feeling. Great idea about the tags.

No, outside of all my lj friends no one will ever see this blog. It dies with me!
Sep. 9th, 2017 08:12 pm (UTC)
I totally feel that you really mean it.
Sep. 9th, 2017 09:09 pm (UTC)
I've vented about my family so much here and as much as they make me nuts I don't want any hurt feelings.
Sep. 10th, 2017 12:50 pm (UTC)
Excellent reason.

Because I don't plan on having kids, I don't really care what happens to my journal when I die. I feel like my family (other than my cousin Haley) has no idea the kind of life I lead, so they would be shocked to find what they would consider a secret life.

I don't censor what I write (other than friends-locking, but that's mostly to keep my life private in the event that my students might somehow stumble upon it), so I imagine if anyone was truly interested in my life that they would find it fascinating, but overall I doubt anyone will really care to know, after I'm gone.

Maybe aliens will come upon all this data we create and use it to construct a picture of the world in which we existed. Your stiry woukd give them sonething tobthink sbout. :-)

My second daughter has my LJ password, some instructions about what to do with my account once I'm gone, and a thumb drive on which I've collected some of the pieces that I'd especially like to have saved and maybe read by others, including some family members.

My eldest daughter lives on the West Coast and I'll occasionally send her a piece that's in my LJ or, these days, my DW and she usually shares them with her daughter who is an avid reader.

I don't mind that because Ana is a bright, perceptive girl with an active interest and curiousity about her family which has probably heightened with the passing of her grandmother.

That said, and I find this both interesting and ironic, I've always counted on the vastness of the the internet (along with my user names) to provide the anonymity I prefer when writing about my own life, the irony being that I find anonymity in the most public medium yet invented...

You are definitely more prepared than me, and lucky to have some readers in your family.

My Anah doesn't read much, but she is bright and curious about family life before she came on the scene.
