Journaling 2012

It's been a while since I've posted on here, and I decided perhaps it was time for an update regarding why exactly I just stopped. Well, there's only one explanation. I just stopped. I stopped journaling, stopped recording my life, stopped doing any of it. I have no explanation for why my journal writing just dried up. It simply did. And it sucked. Writing is my outlet to a lot of things in my life--anger, pain, frustration, fear. It also allows me to record the things I never want to forget--the good moments, the exciting things my daughter does, etc. I had tried to do a digital journal through Penzu.

Using Penzu, I also have an app on my phone to catch photos, videos, etc. of the cute things my daughter does. Then it bugged and stopped syncing to my online journal. Now, I have entries on my phone that are not on the website, and I'm worried that if I just delete and reinstall, I will lose those entries forever. I am very upset about this and have tried to contact Penzu support. They haven't updated the app in a while so I hope they're working on it.

Anyway, 2013 rolled around, and I realized my journaling life had grown stagnant. I started recording things my husband needs to work on, things that we talk about that he never remembers we talked about. This helped, but I wanted a private place to record the things he shouldn't read. Not till I'm dead and gone, of course. As a late Christmas gift, my sister bought me several moleskines. One of them is a legendary notebook. That one soon became my journal. So far, I have only yesterday and today, but I also signed up for the first annual journaling expo today, and I'm hoping that'll have some good information for me too. I'm hoping to write a blog post about that as well.

Thanks for reading.
