This is my BLOG on adding scrapbooking to your journaling as opposed to adding journaling to your scrapbooking. I think that it is more soul baring and therapeutic to journal with the visual aid of photographs or whatever you want to put on a scrap layout.
I have been surfing around and reading some scrap blogs. Most of them say little and give away much. Forgive me if I am wrong, but I thought the purpose of a blog was to say something. If they are used as a diary, some of these people have very dull lives, or are scared to expose themselves.
I can relate to the reluctance to hang it all out on the web, but if that is the case, why not just have a freebie site somewhere?
I would like to see more blogs geared toward teaching people how to get more journaling into their scrap layouts and possibly discussing design principles. Personally, I don’t have time to read alot of stuff going on in other peoples lives. When I do have some free time, I would prefer to be scrapping, reading or writing.
I am constantly seeking information on whatever subject that interests me for the moment.
In other words, I self educate. I have become pretty good at gathering information and putting it in a usable order. I am not sure how I can do this on the blogger system, but I am going to put up journaling promts and links to tutorials. I may still add links for freebies, but that would only be as a secondary purpose.
Since I am preaching journaling, I will upload some of my layouts I have done that are in the form of diary entries over a scrapbook layout, just to prove it can be done. This blog interface isn’t as conducive to photo uploading as Blogger is so to see the Layouts, you will find the link below under Scrap Therapy.
I have Categorised the Quotes below. Since I am working on the Great American Novel, there are some new categories for writers and readers.
