I'm just curious as to how many of you have a variety of different journals, and what purpose that they each have. I personally have ~ Personal Journal: used for recording memories, thoughts, events etc ~ Writing Journal: used for developing my writing skills and recording related information ~ Artists Journal: in which I practice my painting skills and jot down ideas etc ~ Control Journal: used to help me develop routines, and establish habits etc ~ Misc. Journal: Includes info needed to start my own business, my online earning "plan" and records, info needed to start my partners business, budgets, everything basically.

I have a lot of journals, but if I wanted to find a particular entry six months later I doubt I could. I've had daily journals, art journals, poetry journals,food and excercise journals. Someday I should put them all in order, but I don't think I'd be that interesting to anyone else but myself.

I forgot dream journal and travel journal. Mostly I use notebooks to keep the cost down, but it is nice to have a posh journal now and again.

I not only have the hundred and one notebooks thatyou described, but Ive now started cluttering up my hardrive with a variety of different "journals"... LOL Ive got food and exercise journals too lol, not that they have ever done me much good... I used to have a dream journal (Im sure I could find it somewhere...maybe LOL) And I have never had a travel journal as I hav enever been overseas and very rarely have travelled around Australia so...

I keep a journal for the novel I'm currently working on, and one misc. journal that includes everything else. I wish I was as organized as you are at keeping separate ones...it would make my life easier.

Mines is an omnibus of all. I use a book to jog down anything I can think of. This may called my variety journal. As soon as I have time, I would enter the content into my computer. There I categorize them into types.

I think you could have several with different purposes and that makes extreme sense. I have one for tax expenses charitable contributions work effort I like to keep my thoughts separate from those I think it is just smart but watch the organization

I used to write personal journals back in the days, but I haven't written anything forever.
