Since 2007 I have made a journal every year. I enjoy making them (my 2010 is probably my favorite), but I don't think to use them very often. December 31 comes and I find less than 1/3 of the pages are used.
What I've Learned
I need to write when I am overwhelmed. I use journals to process my thoughts and feelings and I use lists to manage my tasks. But when I don't need to journal, I don't use it. I would get more use out of one that could span more than one year.
Well, January 1 is just a couple days away. It's time to put all this pondering about 2010 and blogging and such to use and make some choices. Stay tuned for what's next in 2011
