Journals, etc.

I wouldn't say I'm enormously frustrated....just mildly.  I've been journal hopping again.  My problem is I'm reading so many journals and not remembering where they are or where I found them from and some I would like to get back to and haven't been able to.

I read Sherilyn's entry the other day about journals and have wondered if there is a journal etiquette.   I'm not sure.  I usually look at the journals that others have listed.  Do you have to ask someone if you can add their journal to your favorites?

There are many that I read but hesitate to make any comments...don't know why...I just don't.  They are public but some I sense seem almost private.  I almost feel like an intruder.

I'm thanking Missy for the link to file managing.  Now maybe I'll be able to make my journal pretty and add pictures that fit and put them throughout my journal.  This is definitely something I want to do for my own personal satisfaction.  Lord, please don't get me started on scrapbooking just yet....LOL..I have all I can handle now.  Missy...you're pictures and animations are awesome..and your girls are the next generation of America's Top Models........

I'm still wondering how I got into this but am so glad I did.  I'm not even sure what I was expecting.  I certainly never thought my journal would be read...I wasn't too worried about that part of it.  It just seemed like a good way to unwind and express my feelings on any given day...plus the fact that I talk to myself anyway so why not do it in a more constructive way.  Speaking of constructive....I have some cleaning to do and I'm finding that this journaling is pretty much an avoidance tactic on my part. 

Of course, my son will be home soon and then there will be the struggle over computer time so that will solve my avoidance problem....

it's your journal.......................
Do what you want in here, say what you want to say and share what you want to share.  I keep coming back for more.  good luck with the pictures.

I think of it as an honer to be added to someones list. As far as talking to yourself I do that too, and when people ask me are you talking to yourself I say nope, my journal friends.

I`m new at this also and so far I love it! I`m not sure about etiquette either, so shall we add each other`s journal to our lists of other journals? :) Mine`s easy, cuz I have a link on my profile page to my journal  as well.  Heck, I didn`t even know how to do THAT - my daughter did it for me.

By the way, when I come across a journal I like, I put it in my favorite places, that way I can always go back to it.
