Personal diaries have been around since written language was introduced. Typically, My Blogs is my electronic diary. It contains relatively frequent records of my life and events, but it can be about anything.

 

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love calling their friends and having a good rant?

 

But chances are there are some things I will hold back, even from them. In My Blogs, I can say whatever I like, no matter how awful or self-obsessed it would seem out loud. I know that nobody can read it. It feels so good to get all my thoughts out instead of fretting over them late into the evening or the following morning.

 

Writing My Blogs every day and trying to be reflective helps me focus on my goals and motivations. In the evenings I write a paragraph about what went well today and what I felt I needed to do better, sometimes I can identify areas in my life that need more effort.

  

Because of My Blogs, I wake up with determination and sleep with satisfaction.

 

My Blogs contains both public and private contents. The public ones are general fun stuff that I like to chat about but private and sensitive information are for my eyes only.
