Backdating History

Backdating History

I have a confession to make. This last year’s worth of entries? If you’d stopped by a few weeks ago, they wouldn’t have been here.
 
LiveJournal has a feature called Date Out of Order (used to be called Backdate Entry) that lets you change the date and time the entry appears at. I’ve made free use of this in the past little while.
 
Life can get chaotic, stressful, and at some point, something’s got to give. For me, it was this blog. Quotes piled up, Scribblings got left behind, and the journal waited patiently. We always come back to the things that we love. That’s my conclusion from this, at least. Updating this journal was frequently in my mind, and I’m glad that I was finally able to squeeze in the time to get it caught up.

 
Still, it feels a little deceitful. Maybe it is, I’m honestly not sure. For me, it was more about making an accurate record of my past than accurately recording the time and date it was entered.  Thinking about it, though, I’m not certain which of those is really preferable.
