    I have for the past nine years and i wish i wrote more in that period. Some times i will write every day for three months and other times i will write two times a month so it varys for me but i do keep track of whats going on in my life with it. Give it a few months or years and you some very interesting reading.Who else keeps a Journel/Diary ?.

    I do. I'm hoping that someday I get famous for something, then I can publish my "memoirs".

    I've debated it, but when the end of the day rolls around, I forget the day's events.

    I used to keep a blog, but then I had stalkers. I figure I'll start writing it down again soon.
     
  7. I wrote my first diary last year. It's good to look back on it and see what I was doing this time last year; what my thoughts were, my attitudes to things, what I was doing, etc...

    My best friend gave me a new diary for Christmas to write this year in; it was a Secret Santa present, and he bought it in Sevilla (we were in Spain for Christmas last year). So I have a Spanish diary this year. :D

    Nope. I'm into the "resurrection" concept. One day at a time. One "moment" at a time. Buddha said the same thing, if you can get past all the mythology. Think of it like a Markov process. Besides my memory isn't shot yet, and when it is, it won't matter anyway. Hopefully my kids will be too smart on their own, to be reading my diary. :D

    I generally post a bit of what's happening on my website. I try to keep it music related, however; I don't need my tens of tens of fans digging through my personal life.

    i still say... why waste your time writing on what you lived through and then reading what you lived through when you can live some more...

    There are "professional historians" out there, and I'm not one of 'em. :D

    I don't see that as part of my "responsibility" to all y'all. I'll leave that to the experts. :)

    I´ve been keeping a diary of my daily stuff for three years now.

    It´s actually fun to look back once in a while....

    I will write tonight. :)
     
  15. I use to keep a journal. Started it sometime during High School, had it going for a few years, and then my writing in it just dwindled down to nothing. I'm not even sure if I still have the notebooks I used.

    I just started a journal, about my everyday events, yesterday.I have 6 composition books of my poetry, but everyone was saying I should try and write a normal journal. I had tried it before but I wasn't consistent. Now I am trying again. I hope it works well.

    I write fiction on a daily basis, which is usually cathartic enough to be considered a journal, of sorts.

    I guess.

    Introspection.

    Having the ability to learn and gain from past experiences, makes futures ones more rewarding.

    I agree with Jazzbo on this plus it makes for an interesting read after some time. :)
