Three words – privacy, privacy, privacy!
Remember when you got your first diary? That cherished place to outpour your teenage angst, anger at your parents and how dreamy that new boy at school was?
Seemed that no matter where you hid the key though, at some point in time, you’d catch your kid sister or brother reading your most private thoughts and heart doodlings, so ardently shared on the pages.
Thank goodness, those days are gone!
These days, online journaling is the perfect place to engage in self-discovery, reflection, recording family history and even some of that leftover teenage angst. 🙂 Sans siblings and the merely curious breaking the lock and reading all those embarrassing professions of love for the older boy in grade 8.
An online journal is a wonderful venue on which to explore your goals and desires. It also provides a private, effective method for healing emotional and spiritual wounds, as well as contributing to stress relief.
Basically, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain. You can’t say that about everything in life, that’s for sure.
So, to answer the question in the headline….
Why Online Journaling is More Tempting Than a Cinnabon?
It’s sweet like a cinnabon but has a lot less calories and way more added features, such as:
- Write entries via web, mobile and email
- Entries are securely backed up and can be accessed anytime, on any device
- You have the option of preserving and publishing your journal in a hardbound book
There have been many (many) articles written about the benefits of journaling. It really is a gift to yourself, whether for healing, stress relief, productivity or recording ancestry for future generations.
If you do a search, you can find free online journals. Starting a free blog is another no-cost alternative. You don’t have to spend any money to get some really great results. It’s something personal that you do for you.
Enjoy your journal journey!
