If you are at all familiar with the TTC boards around JM, you will note that most of them have a journal section. This is a great place for each member to start their own journal. I didn't really "get it" when I first joined JM a few years ago, so thought that maybe this would be helpful for some newer-to-JM members!
1. Journals are completely optional - no pressure, no requirement!
2. Journals are for YOU. Sure, they are "out there" for others to read/post on, but ultimately, they are for YOU and you alone to document as much or as little about your TTC journey as you wish.*
3. Journals are a great way for you to share things that might be a little more personal, might not require a new topic, don't fit under another board topic, or just for daily updates!
I didn't start my journal right away. I wasn't sure what I would "say" or write about. I would post one day, then go weeks or even months without posting in it. My posts were boring, useless stats, and meaningless dribble! Finally, I found my groove and pledged (for myself) to journal every day. This time, however, I journaled for me. I had reached a breaking point in my TTC journey, and needed someplace to get my feelings out. I've really come to find that I look forward to writing in my journal daily.
* Of note. I am a prime example of #2 above. My posts are usually LONG and full of "here's what I ate for breakfast, here's how many times I wiped my nose, etc." with a snippet of cycle info. God bless my faithful readers (you know who you are!). But it's for me, and whoever like to read, great, and I don't blame those who don't!
So, for new members - if you'd like to get to know some of us others, pop by our journals! We're witty and fun, and sometimes boring, but you'll get to know more about us that way! And I would encourage you all to think about starting your own journal! As much or as little as you keep up with it, it's yours to keep
