Omni Journaling with Burgess

In January of 2015, I posted a video called “A Smattering of my Journal Collection.” I knew I had a lot of journals. I knew I had too many journals back then, and was about to order my first real Traveler’s Notebook. 😀 I was super excited about it, couldn’t wait to delve in, and I was trying to get away from having so many different journals.

By March I was re-evaluating things… and made a video called “Journaling and Why It’s Important to Me.” What I didn’t know then was that I was on my way to Omni Journaling. 😀  In April I did my first real flip thru of my Fauxbo and Hobo. I was really into the documenting my life with words and art, still am, but I was having a bit of a problem in the planning department. And when I heard about #onebookjuly I was so ready to condense things. I needed to organize things in a better way. I needed to get back to basics. I made the decision to join and made a video, where I talked about the idea of the perfect journal, and I say “I want to …. in one place.” I haven’t yet called it an Omni Journal, but I’m headed down that road. 😀

The Omni Journal has been a work in progress. On March 5, 2106, I posted a video  about various topics, one of which was how I’d set up my journals/TN’s/OmniJournal… I just didn’t call it an actual Omni Journal until the next video. 😀 Finding my way with my journaling style has been a long journey. Back in high school (in the early 80’s) I was Smashbook style journaling before there was ever a Smashbook. I added receipts, concert stubs, quotes, pictures from magazines, pictures of people, doodles, writing, and all kinds of other things into my journals. I’ve come a long way since those composition notebooks I used back then, but one thing has changed–my love for the combination of art and words.

And now I have created a group on FB called Omni Journaling with Burgess. And I’ve uploaded my the first video in a series of videos answering questions about the Omni Journal. 😀
