I really like the numbering system.  That would help so much cuz I would always be  flipping through trying to find  the other entries on the same topic.

I also like to list things I am thankful for.

your journal totally inspired me, and starting a journal wasn't even on my mile-long list of things i want to do.
also, my favorite "what did i learn today?" is:

"when the instructions say you need to drill pilot holes- yes, you need to drill pilot holes."  i very much need a daily reminder of thing like that.

I really like your journal system, particularly the "hyperlinks".  I never can find things in my journals!  I gave up trying to do a coherent day-by-day record years ago.  Now they're just a huge mess of random information, thoughts, and bits of cool paper.  I desperately need some kind of organization system.

Does anybody else keep a Bad Day notebook?  I used to keep everything in one journal, but I kept ripping things out, because I don't like leaving my "I had a rotten day" rants for posterity.

Now I save the good journals for things I'd like to see again in future, and if I need to vent, I have a recycled-paper notebook where I can rip the pages out without endangering stuff I'm actually attached to.

I never thought of a bad day journal, but what a good idea.  So much better to vent on paper instead of  ripping someone's head off.  At least you don't have to appologize after,just crumple and pitch!

Thanks to everyone who left me compliments!

If you have a question and I missed it, please let me know!


Nobody else wants to share pages?  I was excited to see!   Embarrassed

I love the page number idea - I am such a scrambled writer.  I had separate books for separate things for awhile (lists, quotes, book notes, drawings) until I realized - well my life isn't separate, why should my journals be?  But now my notebooks are a mess and it leaves me frustrated.  This page numbering idea is a must try.  But as I am too much of a perfectionist, an idea to be tried in my next journal. 

Thanks for the tips!

Zero cool - I just looked at that website (43things.com) what a great site: book marked!

Also, I wanted to encourage everyone who wants to journal but doesn't know where to start to get a pocket book.  I always have one in my wallet and use it for quotes, shopping lists, to do lists, etc. I feel like I don't have to ill up my journal with mindless things like "buy bread" and phone numbers, stuff like that, but I also often use it as a catalyst for my "home" journal.  I have a friend who lovingly describes his pocket journal as his "brain."

Just a by the way here - but the poem Cosmopolitan Greetings (http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/cosmopolitan-greetings/) is the poem that compelled me to start writing years ago, specifically these lines:
Observe whats vivid.
Notice what you notice.
Catch yourself thinking.
Vividness is self-selecting.
If we dont show anyone, were free to write anything.

Sorry for blabbing on and on!!!
