Two months of private diary blogging

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

More than two months ago, I decided I should try using my blogging software for journaling. Every day, I create a new private post with a few bullet points about the day: what I did during the day, how I felt, what I thought about.

Journaling with rwtxt

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

For about a month now, I do journaling again. Every evening before I go to bed, I try to write down everything that comes to my mind. I usually write what I have done that day, what my emotions where and other things that I thought about during the day. It has a very positive effect to do that. I wrote about that more detailed on my German blog (Google’s translation).
