I know this community's been dead for a while (the last post was in 2013!), but I figured I'd try.

Due to Darth Real Life, I stopped journaling (even though it was stuff I should have been journaling about) and I'd like to start again. But I feel a bit strange just starting up again. I want to summarize what happened over the past couple of years and yet making time for that seems cause procrastination, so I don't do any journaling at all.

Does anyone have any advice on how to start journaling again?

Hi, I just bought my first paper journal in years. It's a simple composition book. Now that I have it, I don't know what to write about.  I am looking for suggestions. 

What do you write about?
Is it the same as what you write about in your DW journal?
Do you write daily, weekly, or whenever the mood strikes you?
Do you draw in it, paste pictures, just write in it, or something else not listed? (Please write what the not listed is)
Any other advice about paper journaling?

Thank you for your time.

My journalling has rather fallen by the wayside in the latter part of 2011. I want to get it kick-started over the next few days, and get a lot more filled in during 2012.

How has 2011 gone for you, journal-wise? Are you starting a new journal for 2012? Do you want to do anything different with your journalling next year? And, um, yes, anything else you'd like to say?

Hi! I'm Indy. I've only been regularly paper journalling for just about a year now.

I'm primarily a text journaler, but I usually use stickers to decorate my pages with. Sometimes, they're related to the entry and sometimes they're not. I used to keep my collection in the pocket at the back of my journal, but it grew so massive that I couldn't close my journal's flap. I'm currently keeping them in a folder, which has the constant danger of them falling out.

So I'm looking for advice on what to buy to put them in. A small plastic bin, an expanding file/13-pocket folder, or something else entirely?

A couple of months ago this community was hopping, and then everyone kind of disappeared--including me. Oops.

For those of you still tuned in, I have a question (as usual for me, no pictures, sorry). What language do you write in, native or other?

I've always thought it would be cool to be bilingual, and have two years of high school Spanish under my belt, and this fall semester at college I'll be taking Spanish 101. I thought I'd practice it in my journal as much as I could, or cared to.

I'm just worried that someday I'll get an itch to read through everything but I won't remember my Spanish. Obviously right now, and perhaps for a couple of years, it would be more like Spanglish (we might get a dog! maybe we'll get dos!), but I wonder if it's worth it. I don't read through my journals usually, though, so maybe it won't be a problem.

I had read a Dear America book (a series of historical fiction by Scholastic made for young girls, in the format of a diary) in which the narrator, an immigrant, practiced her English by writing in her diary. I guess that kind of inspired me.

A while ago it was suggested that we could try having themes or discussion topics in this community, and since I'm trying to generate a bit of content for [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw, now seemed a good time to start:

So, first theme: how did you start journalling? Have you been writing paper diaries since you were a kid, or is it something you began fairly recently? Was it difficult to get started, or did it come completely naturally? What are your first memories of expressing yourself on paper, in a journal of your own? And does anyone have any photos they're willing to share of their early journals?
