For as long as people have been writing, they have used it as a form of self expression. Personal diaries and journals are a good example.
Blogging, being a new form of self expression, combine features of personal journaling and support groups. People write to express themselves and to share and discuss their problems. The modern method of journaling enables much more social interaction than a diary, which traditionally is a strictly private, self reflective affair.
In this modern world, where information technology rules, blogging or journaling is now considered as therapeutic exercise. To me, it is also a time for you to get in touch with your inner self.
By journaling, you learn to off-load your everyday concerns before heading off to bed.
Benefits of journaling :
1) To de-stress
2) Get to know yourself
3) Clarify your thoughts and feelings
4) Solve problems effectively and calmly
