Blog Your Dreams? | Blog Your Blessings

November 25, 2007 on 5:13 pm | In Dream Journals | 2 Comments

Can a blog serve as a dream journal? Absolutely. Even if you remember pieces of dreams throughout the day, you can jot them down and add them in the evening before you go to sleep (so they don’t get lost or confused with that night’s dreams.

If you blog your dream journal, it’s best to keep it private. Dreams can be strange or embarrassing. You don’t want just anyone reading them. And you don’t want to have to censor yourself. You should be able to record your thoughts without worrying about other people reading them.

There are plenty places where you can create a blog for free, and you can keep it private, too. Of course, nothing is as private as a book that only you see. But, depending on who shares your household, the slight risk of having your blog hacked may be considerably less than the chance that someone at home will find your dream journal and read it.

Also, when you travel, you can post to your dream journal blog from anywhere that you can get computer access. There’s no need to take your dream journal and risk losing it.

The downside to online dream journaling is that you may not find it as easy to add sketches and color to your dream journal blog. But there are solutions.

At home or at work, you can use a scanner to quickly capture your sketches. On the road, you can use a digital camera with a good macro or document setting. You could even fax black-and-white sketches to your home email address. If all else fails, you can just bring home your dream sketches and recreate them in a paint or drawing program.

Other variations include keeping your dream journal in a word processor or page-layout file on your computer. That way you can carry it with you on on your laptop or on a removable storage device (a disk or thumb drive).

Consider also blogging your blessings. Gratitude has a way of making good dreams come true.

I consider the Internet to be a great blessing. WordPress, which I’m using to write this post, and Blogger are two of my favorite blessings these days.

You can set up a free blog at www.WordPress.com or www.Blogspot.com for whatever you want to write–whether public or private. And see if you find it to be a blessing, too.

  1. It never occured to me to use a blog as a dream journal, but your point about the privacy of my regular journals has become very clear lately. :)

    Happy Sunday!

  2. What an interesting idea. The privacy issue is a good point, though. Nothing but nothing is private on the Internet.

    God bless.
