Updated: Jun 18, 2019

#journal #writing #books Look at that! We can start our journals with hashtags. So often technology saving takes the place of the journals that people used to keep. What about those weather journals that people used to keep years ago? Is anyone still doing that?

What kinds of journals are there?

1. Writing Journal

Keep track of your rough drafts, characters, and even planning maps. If you are a writer, it's a great idea to have a writing journal.

2. Bullet Journal

Do you love lists but writing is a burden. How about making a bullet journal, which is basically the date, topics, and lists on life or whatever interests you.

3. Dream Journal

Do you like writing down those dreams before they fleet away with your morning eggs? Keep a dream journal by your bed so you can quickly write down the images and happenings of your adventurous night. Then, go back and analyze later! Try a dream book with it.

4. Food Journal

Seems like we have every opportunity to save recipes online via Facebook and recipe apps. But how about those recipe books we love to touch? And what about the notebook that has all of Grandma's recipes and favorite Thanksgiving secrets.

5. Travel Journal

DO you travel? Take thousands of pictures for your phone cloud, and then print just two from each vacation. Paste those into a journal and describe your most memorable moment from your trip.

After thousands of pictures, would you prefer the simple journal?
