I'm going to try one more time in getting this thing going. With sites like PostSecret, I thought that this would be just as theraputic, because people can ask someone about private/secret issues without giving up their identity. Not only just a place to get that secret or issue off your chest, but the chance to have a two-way communication/discussion about it. So here I am again, and here's how it works...

Need someone to talk to? Maybe you just need a quick bit of advice, or maybe you have a serious issue that you need help with. I'm here, and I'll listen. You don't have to be a member of Livejournal to use this community. I've left the anonymous posting option on. And that means you can be as secretive/private as you want. I'll put up one of these a month to try and keep it in order. If you want to keep your identity hidden, find the current month we're in, and hit the 'Leave A Comment' to that post. Once you have said what you want to, just click 'Post Comment', and I'll respond back to you.

You don't have to ask for advice anonymously if you don't want to. If you don't mind your identity known, you can post from your account on Livejournal. For those who already have an account, and don't want to post anonymously, please make a separate post to the community to try and keep things in order instead of replying to the anonymous posts.

Why is this a community and not just another actual Livejournal account? While I'll try, and give the most honest advice I can, there might be other people in your situation that may have some insight that I don't. And for that reason, other people can offer advice too. I actually welcome that idea. There's only one rule to that, and that's to allow me a chance to answer back first. As I'm resurrecting this, I will answer every post within 24 hours.

For more information on me, what I am, and what I'm not -- please click the 'User Info' link. This also has all my fancy legal disclaimers as well as more information on why and how I started this community.

As always, if you are contemplating suicide, harming yourself, or harming others there are places where you can get help. They should be contacted before posting on this community:

1-800-SUICIDE - Open 24 Hours/7 Days A Week

http://suicidehotlines.com/ - List of Crisis Centers Across the U.S.

Best Regards,
Jen

The Beginning...

Ok so you've made it. The place looks a bit empty right? Well that's because I've just started it. I imagine it'll take a bit to gain steam and start rolling. But don't let that stop you or hinder you in using it for what it is here for... advice.

Now, I don't claim to have all the answers. What I do claim is to take time to help you find them, to the best of my ability... I am only human of course. Credentials? Well... I'd like to say I'm all knowing and that's my credentials. But unfortunately, I'm just like you... traveling and learning as I go. I've been lucky enough to have a broad range of experiences in my life that allow me to have just a tad more wisdom with each one I endure. And maybe... just maybe, I can pass it along to you.

I've left the 'anonymous' option on for people who don't want their identities known. And I'm not here to make an example out of you or hunt you down. This place should be somewhere, where you feel comfortable talking and asking questions. If that means without a name on the post, then that's how it goes.

When the community starts to get bigger with more members, I imagine that not only will you have me offering you advice, but others as well. The way society should be, a helpful society, a caring society.

However, with that comes responsibility. There will be issues talked about on here that you may or may not agree with or like. But this community and its members will not push or pressure their beliefs/ideals/morals on any other member. Advice is one thing, but a line is always drawn when it morphs into pressure or pushing. We're all different, and that's a good thing... remember that.

As not to get confusing please make sure you read the info for "Ill Advised" first before you do post. Since this is my advice column of sorts, please refrain from jumping in before I get a chance to reply to the poster. I welcome the advice from others, but please be patient when doing so.

Ok lastly, the name. You're asking why I picked that huh? Well, I'm not going to lie. It was catchy, and an attempt at being creative. "Ill Advised" sounds a lot more creative then "Ask Jen".

Welcome, and thanks for coming.
