I love writing. Obviously, otherwise, why would I have a blog right? A blog is all about a space to put your writing of some sort. I also love the idea of journaling. Note that I said idea, not journaling itself. During my lifetime, I've started dozens of journals, in notbooks, expensive decorated journals and online. Every journal has a rocking 1st entry, another entry some days later, an apology entry for not writing more and then it drifts off into blank nothingness.
Yes, I most certaininly love the idea, but not the act. Somehow even though I desperately want to record my life events, I can't face down the blank page demanding to be filled. An article is one thing, an essay, a story, a blog post, these are all achievable, but a full page detailing my every thought, action and regretable choice for the day? It just never seems to happen.
This is why I absolutely love the new Journal 10 I was sent for review. It's a 10 year journal in one lovely book. And how do they fit 10 years in one book? Why by making each entry space very small! Each 4 line space has just enough space to record something for the day, but not enough space to be intimidating.
I've already written more journal entries than I have in any other journal I've ever tried. It's so easy, you can just write one great big, "Had a BAD day!" if you like. Or you can write a several lines detailing what you did or what you ate or who you met. It's perfect for me. If you do have a little too much to write that day, there are rollover pages in the back of the book. So far though 4 lines has been more than enough for me. In fact, I fit much more than I expected in there. One entry tells of my pain level for the day, what my boss said at work, how my husband was feeling and what type of cupcakes I baked! This is probably more than I normally would write in a journal entry because I wasn't intimadated by the aweful blank page syndrome.
Here are some other cool features:
1. Sturdy Leatherette Cover
2. Unique format, every page has a place for 5 years worth of entries for one day making it easy to look back on past years.
3.Special sections for addresses and important events.
