Ah, yes. A blog. I heard the term, did a little research via Google and in less than an hour blogger.com helped me have one of my own.
Honestly, I've been thinking about doing some online journaling for some time. I received a fellowship this year which will require me to journal twice a week. I HATE journaling, especially when I'm FORCED to journal. It's like being asked to tell a funny joke in front of your boss. At that very moment, you won't be able to think anything besides a "knock-knock" joke.
My solution involves doing MORE journaling. Counter productive, perhaps. It's my hope that I can write more easily because I write more often. If need be, I can steal entries from my Blog in order to fulfill my requirement. Not every entry will be a journal. In some cases it will just be listing what small tasks I accomplished towards a larger goal. Perhaps a way to keep me honest. We'll see.
Right now I plan on tracking my progress towards my marine science phd, day to day drivel for the fellowship, and triathlon race reports. Who knows where this will lead?
