There is a new journaling challenge blog, Journaling Junkie and it looks like a great way to find some inspiration and motivation to journal some new ways -- maybe a new topic, or a tough subject, or an angle you wouldn't have thought up on your own.
Journaling is in my trifecta of scrapbooking importance -- one component of the trinity of memories, photos, and writing. With rare exception, any of the two just do not feel complete without the third. Memories and photos are often a given, and sometimes I come up short on words. However, I always struggle through with finding the right words, because I think journaling is an important foundation to the page: your writing makes your memories available to someone else to be recalled forever.
