Blogging to Keep a Record of Events

There are different reasons we may want to start a blog. As mentioned in the two previous posts in this blog, blogging can be used for a variety of other purposes such as making money online, promoting a cause, providing useful information, and staying in touch with family and friends.

Keeping a record of important events is another common reason for blogging. Depending upon one’s own interest and whims, there are hundreds of kinds of events a blogger may wish to document. Examples of some types of events include a pregnancy, weddings, vacations, a personal travel, sporting events or completion of school events, or even personal projects.

The use of blogs to keep a record of important events gives the blogger an opportunity to record daily events in one simple location where they can easily look back on the blog or share the postings with others who might be interested in the events.

With this particular case, the blog can serve as a form of scrapbook documenting the events as they occur. The blogger has the choice to post as often as he desires and may choose to include other elements such as photos, music, audio files and video files into the blog.

One advantage of using a blog to record important events in your life is that the blog can also be easily designed to suit the events being documented. For example a journal depicting a vacation may have backgrounds, fonts and colors representing the vacation location while a pregnancy blog may feature colors and elements which represent pregnancy, babies and being parents.

    This definitely works for me.

    Now I no longer need to search my hard drive for hours to try and find web stats for August last year – I just look on my own blog!
