I know it has been a long time since I publicly wrote on my blog and that is because a lot of what I used to write about I moved to a private journal – although that is changing and I’ll be posting back on here now as well.
Journalling is not just something for little girls it is a fantastic place to write in private. Log you life and give you something to reflect on in years to come. I have been journaling in Day One for about 3 months now and I am loving it. Yes, I am going to be working on a web based journalling application of my own but that is a different story.
One of the big reasons for the come back to WordPress is the new editor in WP 5.0 and my move from cheap hosting on to something that can actually load a page in a reasonable amount of time. These 2 combined have given some joy back to writing on the web and something I will be doing a lot more in 2019.
Tangent over, back to journalling. After only a few months of journalling when I got the end of 2018 and had something to look back on that documented my day to day life I felt I had achieved something with my time and 2018 wasn’t a total waste of everybody’s time. It gave me a real sense of being and great sight as to where I want to be at the end of 2019.
So what do I journal about:
- Work: what I did, what I wanted to do
- Family: what we do, what we want to do, things the children do
- Ideas: detail out what they are and how they might work
- Gratefulness: things I am grateful for
- Learning: things I have learnt from reading and YouTube
