I’ve never been one to journal but I’ve decided to give it a shot. I dusted off a leather-bound journal that Holly had given me a long time ago but before I started writing, I remembered how terrible my penmanship is and how I hate just writing a check. So I figured I would see if there exists a journaling software for mac. I found the aptly titled “MacJournal”. It seems very well put together and I really dig it but I started to wonder if something gets lost when journaling on a computer as opposed to an actual journal that requires you write down your thoughts.
Pros for computer journaling would be:
-easier/faster to write
– more options for organizing entries
-doesn’t waste paper, al gore would be proud.
-not as physically tangible
-a bit more of a soulless experience
-maybe easier isn’t necessarily better?
In the end, if I had to actually write out my entries by hand, I’d likely not journal as often. Anyone else ever think about this kind of journaling quandary?
