Welcome to the blog o' sphere, Eric. I've enjoyed your musings for over two decades now, and I'm excited to see where you go with this project.

Oh, and I wouldn't worry too much about correlating the intentions at first entry to the eventual impact of the message. Back a few years ago, I visited the DC Holocaust Museum and saw first hand the words a young lady recorded in her diary. Here's one of her quotes that seems to fit:

“I want to go on living even after my death! And therefore I am grateful to God for this gift, this possibility of developing myself and of writing, of expressing all that is in me. I can shake off everything if I write; my sorrows disappear; my courage is reborn. But, and that is the great question, will I ever be able to write anything great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer?” Anne Frank
