Hello again, Stefanie here. Let’s be honest sometimes we create a layout and the journaling flows and we tell the stories, all the details. Other times, we have fewer words, maybe we lack the motivation, maybe it’s not our story to tell. Either way, it’s ok to just have the Where, Who, Why, When and What or any combination of them. I went looking at the Polly gallery to find you some examples.
Courtney (bestcee) gives a little insight into the details of the photo, what you may not glean just from looking. But still no deep emotions, a good synopsis style journaling.
Karen got herself into the photo, love the wry smile and just the basics of who, when, why and what.
Carol (Iowan) chose more of a magazine style, lovely large date and details.
Kiana focusses on the what, the pandemic was a long difficult time, and each day blended into the next. So the what is actually very meaningful.
Just a reminder that the What, Who, When, Where, Why are all that’s needed sometimes. It’s ok to have some stories told in details and it’s ok to have some be the photos and salient details.
