When I look through all of my past layouts, my favorite pages are ALWAYS the ones with lots of words on them! There’s something very powerful about a shared story and I believe the layouts that include our journaling will be precious treasures for us and anyone we share our creations with.
I’ve been writing about journaling here at The Daily Digi for a few years now, and I’ve become even more passionate about the importance of the written word. Our team has shared many ideas to help you get your memories documented and we love to illustrate our tips in daily blog posts, the monthly playbook, and on the layouts we create.
Today, I’m challenging you to find a way to include more words on your pages. Whether you love journaling, or dread it, I know you can find an approach that works for you! To give you a little extra incentive, I’m extending an official call for you to submit a link to a new page you create based on one of our past journaling prompts:
- Write about writing
- Make a list of stories to tell and then start telling them
- Conduct an interview to get journaling material
- Start your journaling with Dear fill-in-the-blank
- Try journaling from blog posts, emails, & status updates
- Make your words the focus of your page
- Photograph your journaling
- Try lightning round journaling
- Get help from others with your journaling
- Listen to a conversation & then write about it
- Write a short story to use as journaling
- Journal this day in history
- Answer questions to get your journaling
- Use the calendar as a journaling tool
- Gather up some journaling
- Borrow your journaling from the internet
- Use a meme or a quiz for journaling
- Exercise your journaling muscles
- Use bullet journaling
- Try a “standing over the shoulder” or “bet you didn’t know” approach
- Look through Katie’s journaling examples
Simply comment on THIS post by Saturday March 24th at 10 p.m. EST with a link to your page and let us know which prompt inspired you. I’ll randomly draw a winner for a $10 designer gift certificate and post the results on the Sunday post. I can’t wait to see what you create!
