My sister and brother-in-law are new parents, our parents new grandmothers and grandfathers, and I am a new uncle. I just wanted to share this momentous event with all of you, seeing as how AoM has helped me become more of the man I should be.

Do you share your journal?

A question for those of you who journal...Do you ever share it? In whole or in part?Do you ever share a specific passage you've written, or is the whole thing your own thoughts for your own reading?Does your significant other respect your journal and privacy or do they ask to read it?See More
