Do you like to blog, journal or write? Why ? What one, if any, do you like to do the most. Do you find that blogging and journaling is relaxing? Do you find that expressing your thoughts outloud releases tension? I find that writing helps me immensely.

I find that writing in my anonymous blog is very freeing. Having the ability to write whatever I want into a blog without worrying about the feedback ruining my social life is truly freeing. While I don't write in it as often as I maybe should, it's still a great source of relief for me. I also write sometimes, usually as notes or short paragraphs to eventually make it into my blog.

You like the anonymous blogging..is that so no one knows who is blogging/ HOw can you be free if you can't allow yourself to be known?

I do all three, I try to write in my journal daily but I miss a few days, I blog weekly on my personal blog as well as my online earning blog. I write poetry as often as I get inspired, writing is so great it makes me feel great. It helps me immensely as well, I don't know what I would do if I couldn't write.

I really got off track from my journaling and blogging when I took my last job that now is gone..so I am really glad to get back on track. THere is a healing effect that comes from writing and blogging and interacting with others on line..

I like reading and writing blogs, I really think relaxing. I like to write about what I think and read what other people think. I think this is an interesting exchange of knowledge and learning.

I don't often blog, I did start one which is something I am about to revive for one last time. I'll see how that goes, I don't keep a journal as I haven't ever felt I could have enough to say or any reason to warrant one. I tend to write, although I haven't written anything for awhile. My poetry as pretty much taken a major set back and I have a problem often with writers block. Not as inspired at the moment.

I really like to blog because I can write about anything and share anything with my friends and make new friends. Your own blog allows you to express your own personality and connect to friends without giving all your personal info out if you don't want to. I love journaling, too, because I love to look back on days or years past and see what was going on. I love writing journals on documents and adding pictures. This is how I save my memories of times past, and I really enjoy it. :)

I write and blog, but don't journal, though I'd like to. I just don't have the motivation to stick with a daily journal! I write about tons of things, from fiction to not, from poetry to prose. I even do a little bit of writing for cash online - including here at myLot! Writing, to me, is just plain fun. It relaxes me and takes my mind off of more stressful things, and it's also something that I simply love to do. Just as how some people like playing sports, even love it with a passion, I feel that writing is an essential part of my life.

Hi! I have written a few blogs. I write when I am fairly certain I have something of importance to say and I am not at all concerned about any negative effects it might have on others.

I blog and I write, but don't journal. I like to blog and write because I have opinions and ideas that would otherwise never see the light of day! Also, I just enjoy writing things out.

Not yet. I plan to start blogging soon. It seems easy enough to do. The problem really is having the free time to do this.
