I’ve tried a few times to keep a journal. I sometimes had a diary growing up, but usually forgot about it. I’ve had a hard time with journaling because in the back of my mind, I think someone will pick up my journal and read through it. I think this is a huge breach of privacy.
Recently, my oldest son expressed interest in starting a journal of his own, which I admit excited me a great deal! He’s not much for writing so it surprised me quite a bit. I think he got the idea from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies, which our family loves. My son is very creative and thoughtful, and I think his new journal will be a great outlet for him.
I guess I can consider my blog a journal of sorts, although it’s not private at all and anyone can read it. I don’t generally post anything private here, since, hello, it isn’t private.
Do you think of your blog as a journal?
