I have always kept a journal, but nothing worth passing through the generations. You know, I actually kept a better journal before I joined the LDS church and found out that someone might want to read it someday to learn about their great-great-grandma Emily. Chilling thought. When I realized that I immediately threw away all my journals from Jr. High and High School. Maybe it was a mistake, but I still don't miss them. I still keep a journal but the entries are few and far between. I always feel like there is so much to catch up on I don't know where to start.
Blogging is the perfect combination of journaling for oneself and staying in touch with friends and family. Hopefully you all will find this to be true as well. Check out the blogs of those you know or find interesting. Signing out.
