For years there has been stock put into the value of recording your thoughts, although before the technology age it was referred to as "Journal" or "Keeping a Diary", but non the less it was encouraged, and mainly a "girlie" thing. I can remember one Christmas (actually many Christmas's) receiving a diary with a lock and key. Now days though we still have the same concept, it now had a different name of "blogging" , and as a newbie to the Blogging scene I can say the therapeutic qualities that it has are amazing. It is my outlet to share all those things that roll around up in my head that clutter up the space that is needed for something else. So in a sense blogging is a sort of mental garage sale.
