Do you blog?

Nowadays it seems like everyone has a blog (except Jess). :P I love blogs (and the size of my google reader can attest to that). I love staying connected with people, eying other people's scrapping projects, looking at gorgeous photos, finding inspiration in the neatest places.

Lately, I've been trying to use my blog as a journal (which really is what it's supposed to be after all) to hold stories that are waiting to make it onto scrapbook pages. It seems like I have a bit more time to write things down these days than I actually do to scrapbook (and with how forgetful I am, I can't trust my memory all the time). I love that when I'm actually ready to do a layout, all I have to do is copy and paste the journaling and print it and it's all done for me. It makes the whole scrapping process so much quicker for me as journaling is what typically tastes me the most time anyways.

When my daughter was 18 months old, she had quite the vocabulary and I wanted to make a list of all of the words she had at that age. I knew it was going to be a while before I could scrap it so I put it on my blog and when I was ready to scrap it I just had to copy, paste and print it.

If you have a story that is waiting to make it onto a scrapbook layout, use your blog to write it down so you don't forget. It will make the layout so quick and easy when you finally are ready to scrap that story.

Don't forget to pop over to the forum today to wish Sandy a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, to see the June Kit reveal, the Card Kit reveal and to participate in Scrappy Hour (the project is super cute).

Thanks for pointing out that I am the only person on earth who does not have a blog! LOL I think it's a fabulous idea and love visiting everyone else's special places in the web!

Your words are so true Heather! I need to get back on mine - I find it so hard to keep up with, but really it's worth the time and effort.

That's a great idea Heather. I never thought about using my blog like that.
