Worthwhile Life Week: Day 3 - Write it Out, Snap a Picture and Take a Video

Keeping a journal of any sort will preserve and immortalize your infinite thoughts and experiences. There are many ways to do this.
  • Start a blog. Use Blogger, Wordpress, TypePad or Tumblr. You have the choice of making it able to be viewed across the world, making it able to be viewed only be select people (via email sign in), or making it able to be viewed only by yourself. Only you could write on it, or only you and your family could write on it or only you and your best friend who lives across the world could write on it. You can choose anything you like. You could have it as public or as private as you like. It could be just text, just pictures, just videos, or a combination, or all three. You could write about what happened to you that day, how those events made you feel, your attitude towards them, what you think of life, what you love about your life, what you want to change about your life, your feelings toward your job that involves caring for panda bears (oh my god I'm so jealous), absolutely ANYTHING! You can make your blog about absolutely anything you want. Get a Blogger blog. Get a Wordpress blog. Get a TypePad blog. Get a Tumblr blog.
  • Start a [insert name here]. Whatever you want to call it: journal, notebook, diary, log, record, account, memoir...anything! It's much like a blog, except you don't have to make it on the Internet. You could write it on a Word document, or in a notebook, or on the backs of scrap paper. Get journals/ notebooks/diaries. Get the Microsoft Office 2007 package. Get paper.
  • Start a vlog. Take videos of yourself. It's actually a lot more fun than it sounds. Embed them on a blog, upload them to a YouTube account, or even just keep them on your camera. Learn how to embed videos. Get a YouTube account. Buy a beginner camera. Buy an intermediate camera. Buy an advanced camera.
Your thoughts, musings and reveries will serve as wonderful memories for years to come...just think of watching your home movies! They will also serve as inspiration, something we could all use a little bit more of.
So, what are you waiting for? Start a journal today!
Do you have a blog? A journal? A vlog?
