I've been blogging online for nearly 13 years, and writing in journals since I was in single digits. It's incredibly therapeutic. Sure - some of the entries may be boring, but sometimes life just *is* boring. Like you, I adore reading journal entries from the past - seeing the words that reflect sentiments or experiences that are familiar are wonderful, reminding me that we all experience many things like generations past. It's comforting.
Beautiful post (and I look forward to reading your blog!)
