My favorite way to journal would be writing ofcourse, but there are a few barriers. You can't format (except for caps or italics), editing an entire journal entry can be difficult (although might be useful in observing patterns), there's the threat of loss, unwelcome prying eyes, fading over time, fire, water damage etc..(although this could be useful to some - showing a well worn journal); Lastly, the ability to search and find a specific journal entry, say several years old is challenging. However, there are many pros to writing in a physical book that may far outweigh the minor inconveniences, & as I alluded to before , i would prefer this format if it came with the bonuses of online Journaling (listed below).
In fact, I'll even recommend a journal book to kick start, or complement your journal writing. I came by this a couple weeks ago while I was browsing Journaling books.
It's by Lyndelle Palmer Clarke
Dailygreatness Journal: A Practical Guide For Consciously Creating Your Days
I'd recommend getting it even if it's just to get some good tips & ideas on how to structure your Journaling.
With that said, I've switched to digital Journaling, specifically evernote, & I use the structure in book above to complement my online journal. Here are a few reasons why I prefer digital:
1. Mobility. Evernote is cross platform. I can journal on my PC, tablet, smartphone, anywhere, anytime.
2. I can format to my hearts content. Bold, underline, italics, highlight, bullet, 1,2,3 etc...
3. I can create a General Notebook with sub-categories, that is, a notebook within a master notebook, categorized by year.
4. I can tag my journal entries. This is an incredibly useful tool, because, I can tag a note or series of notes, let's say, "happiest day of my life" then search that term in the future.
5. I can copy & paste or clip entire Web articles into my journal entry.
6. Journal entries are automatically time stamped with date, time or location (optional).
7. You can share a journal entry (if you wish), useful if your working on a project with others.
8. You can back up your data through cloudhq.net to a plethora of different apps (Dropbox, Google Drive, box & lots of others), then you can backup (I use Google drive) to backup my journal entries & other files to a personal external hard drive. I'm pedantic (lol).
8. You can delete, undo, backspace etc...
I'm sure there are many more pro's that I haven't covered. I just wanted to share some thoughts for you to consider.
Happy Journaling :)
