Journey blogs

Types of Blogs

A journey can be a trip, a year at school, a diet, a divorce, a struggle with cancer.

You are bound for a different place than where you started, and the blog tells the story of how.

Like the catalog, it is deceptively simple. You just put one foot in front of the other and at some point you have created a body of work.

The journey, in installments, is the original form of blogging. It is the "log" in "blog."
