Some people think blogging is a foolish thing. Writing about yourself on the internet and sharing you life with complete strangers?! They have a point of course. Why not use a regular journal, just for your own eyes to see? Well, I started a journal today (just with regular pen & paper) and I must say: I’ve never felt more self-concious about anything. Am I the only one who thinks it’s a bit weird? First, I’m contemplating what to write for about ten minutes and then, when I’m finally ready to write on that blank paper, I get crazy and feel like I’m about to ruin EVERYTHING. Like that beautiful blank paper. And like I can never take it back. Sure, I can take out the ruined page, but that journal will NEVER BE PERFECT AGAIN. Instead it will be tainted with crazy thoughts and me babbling about… well, what exactly?
So yes, I started a journal today. I went into town and bought one. I started the mental proces (staring at the blank page) and googled a bit on “how to journal” (I love me some wikihow). But I’m still not ready to put pen to paper.
Do you have a journal? What do you write about? And HOW on earth did you get started?
