I’ve journaled most of my life. I still have my first journal that I received in fifth grade along with all my journals from college and afterwards. Missing are the ones from high school.

When I journaled, I stuck to writing. Simply writing worked best for me.

Some people doodle in their journals.

Some scrapbook a discovery journal.

Some create a journal out of recycled materials.

Source: no. 2 pencil

Some adapt an existing copy book.

Some go with a simple Moleskine.

A journal is what you make of it.

Some inspiration prompts to get you started.

Aren’t they wonderful! I would love to have a journal that I doodle in though I feel like I’m not much of a doodling. This seems like the best of both worlds for us doodle-impaired folks.

I have journaled at various times in my life… it is a great way to try to make sense of it all. Thanks for another interesting party.

I want to get that “5 minutes a day” mom journal… I guess my blog will have to do for now :)

Wouldn’t it be fun to write a list of things that happen each day? Like saw the first robin this year or made bread for the first time.

I love journaling! I have been doing less of it recently and really need to get back to it. Thanks for this post…hopefully it will kickstart it for me! My favorite one to write in is The Happiness Project Journal.

I’ve never done a journal – and so wish I had gotten into the habit, because there are some memories that would be cool to re-read! :)

I haven’t journaled before, but sometime feel like blogging is a bit like it. Thanks for running the linky this week!
