I have kept a diary on and off since I before I was a teenager. If something is bothering me, I tend to want to write it down. This is common practise amongst many – whether it’s to work through an issue or simply to keep a memory of your life at the time of writing. Some write for themselves and others write on a blog for public viewing. My blog tends to be about general thoughts and opinions whereas my journal is includes more thoughts and emotional feelings. I have tried a few apps – MyWonderful Days on my iPad being a personal favourite but I seem to come back to a notebook and pen most of the time.
Do you keep a diary or journal? How long have you been keeping one? Do you write for yourself or an audience? Have you become more inclined to write in one more or less as you’ve got older? Are you a person who has never kept one?
