  1. Fun challenges! I’m so glad you’re joining the New Year’s Resolution Reading challenge again.

    I look forward to learning what works for you to journal every day. I got started on that journey in 1986 after reading The New Diary by Tristine Rainer. I haven’t journaled every day since then, but the vast majority of them. I filled 44 physical journals before I switched to doing it in Evernote a few years ago. Now, the days that I don’t write a journal entry, I don’t feel like me.

  2. Welcome to the D.O.T.S. reading challenge again. Check the January 2015 linky for the first of four giveaways to kick off the reading challenge.
    Thanks for joining us!
