Journaling on scrapbook layouts tends to be difficult for some people. They don't know what to write. They don't know how much to write. They don't know where to write. They don't like their handwriting.
If you're having issues with journaling, whether it's on a regular page or a more personal layout for your Book of Me, then maybe you want to read this really great journaling tutorial at the Scrapbooking From the Inside Out blog. I bookmarked this a few months ago and really wanted to share it with you all.
First, there are some questions you can ask yourself before you start to journal that will help you decide what kind of journaling you want, how you want to do it, and where you want to put it. (Hidden journaling, don't forget, is always an option if you're journaling something personal that you aren't ready for others to read.)
Then there are five steps to take to getting the journaling just right. You don't immediately put the journaling down on your page. Practice first on a piece of notebook paper and edit it until you get it just the way you want it.
This is a really great journaling tutorial/advice blog. Do you guys have any advice to add?
