Blogging and Journaling and why I do both

 People have asked me why I do both journaling and blogging when I could just do one or the other.  I can easily say that blogging gives me one output, while my journaling is something that I do just for me.


I am someone that has more than one blog, and I am very happy to have separate ones for the separate parts of me. 

  1.  Craftkitten

  2.  DLK Life How I See It

  3.  DLKsCrafts

Now each of these blogs are entirely different in nature as they are for difference audiences.  Now, to talk a bit about each of these, so you can understand why they are so separate.

Craftkitten – this blog is where I will post weekly updates about what crafts that I have been working on during that past week.  This blog doesn’t show a lot of what is going on in my life outside the crafting that I do.

DLK Life How I See It – if you are reading this post, you know what this blog is about.  This blog is where I can write about the various things that I am seeing in the world and also some other thoughts and feelings that bounce into my head.  It is something that I enjoy doing and where I can write about the various challenges that a lot of people deal with.

DLKsCrafts – this blog is more about my ETSY shop and how to run a shop like I do.  It is where I will give you some pointers, as I know that it is sometimes a challenge to start to set up an on-line shop.


To explain a little about my journaling, I have to admit that it is something that isn’t planned to be shared with anyone else.  I write each day and have been doing that for a number of years.  I have been writing every day since December 26, 2013, so yes, I have been writing a lot since then.  The one thing that I can say is that the amount that I write each day depends on the time that I have to write and what I am feeling that day.

I have always been someone that enjoyed sitting and writing, and that is why I started to journal on a more regular basis.  I started out just writing when I felt that I had something to write about, and then it slowly turned into something that I do each day.  I now write electronic journals, while before they were all handwritten and something that I can still look at and laugh at sometimes.  I have written about a lot of the challenges that I have faced, and it has made it a lot easier to handle. For me my journal is what is going on around me and things that I have done each day, so it is more like a diary and I enjoy doing it.

For me, journaling and blogging are two separate things that I enjoy doing, and I will keep doing.   I may not always get a lot of blog posts written, but I continue to write each day.  If writing is something that you enjoy doing, I would recommend that you start to journal for yourself.  It doesn’t need to be fancy at all if you don’t want it to be.  It is something that you are doing for myself and through your writing you will find out a bit more about things that you have dealt with, and now you have got through them.
