Although often used interchangeably, there is actually a significant difference between a journal and a diary. A diary is more of a log of events– where did you go, what did you do and so on. A journal, on the other hand, is a more personal reflection on who you are, what you feel and how you can improve your life.
I call my journal a journal but I use elements of both when I write. This way I paint a picture of not only who I am but also who I want to become.
So whether you keep a journal, diary or a hybrid like I do, most of the tips and suggestions found at EasyJournaling are equally applicable.
