Blogging is Journaling?

Lately I have been getting into You Tube. Mostly for 2 videos from Sesame Street. Elmos song & Cookie Monster's C is for cookie. Payson asks for "Melmo" everytime he sees my laptop now. So, I recalled this morning that our Bishop mentioned in church the "mormon messages" that are now on you tube. This one by Elder Eyring was very inspiring:
I jumped up in search of my journal, vowing to write a little somethin' everyday from now on. But upon arrival of my journal's usual spot, I was shocked to find it missing! How long has it been since I last wrote? I can't even find it! My blog becomes a journal of the precious moments in my family I catch on camera, but even more important are the things I learn and see that strengthen my testimony daily. These are not the public blogging things, but the things that allow me to see God in my life daily and help me realize how truly blessed I am! So hears to blogging! And to keeping (finding...) a journal!

I hope you find your journal! Payson.......Where did you put it? Ha ha. I blame Kenzi for all missing things. Although usually, I am the culprit. Love the new background.

I agree completely. I think that blogs are GREAT for recording memories and sharing them with friends and family, but there definitely is something different about a journal entry that makes it more personal (or at least there should be).

Our stake is actually encouraging people to blog as part of their family history. Did you know you can have your blog downloaded and bound each year so you have a "written" journal as well . . .
