My journal entries started on a website that I created back in 2004. This site was started in April 2007. It is nothing fancy. Just a place for me to sit and write down my thoughts and express who I am. I think a good description could be found under the blog entry “Why this blog?“
I never thought I would, but occasionally, I do go back in my journal entries and read what I have written. It is actually surprising how much one forgets as time goes by. This for me has been a good way to write down memories, though I have kept away from writing about many of the bad ones.
There have been several “quiet” spots where either I got bored, or there were things happening that I just did not want to write about. Maybe I should have continued writing during those periods, but I can’t go back and change that now.
My reader base is growing, though and I think I have grown as a person. Two reasons, I am hoping, will motivate me to continue writing. Another reason is that I just really enjoy writing. Also, it is a means for friends and family to keep updated with what is happening. I am terrible at phoning and writing people.
Maybe, also, I will make a few new friends along the way …
