After planning this for a long time, I finally got down to writing a Jorunal entry. This is the first entry that I made, even if you see some important event's entrys prior to today's date. I wrote them only AFTER I wrote this. So what made me write a journal? I have no idea - even though I have a lot of theories...
1) I have an semi-insane desire to document my life. I have created a program to record booting and shuting down of my system. I have the logs from 2002 onwards still with me. Creepy, right? This is a real entry from February 5th, 2003.

I can say when I used my computer and for how long on any given day for the last two to three years. I start this craze at 30-3-2002, 5:29 AM - my very first entry. So yesterday was the third birthday of my program Boot Recorder which does the recording for me.
2) I am working on a Journal software called LiveJournal and Drupal for our clients at my job. So I could have got the insparation to create a Journal for myself.
3) I started reading other's Blogs around this time. Again, they could have inspired me to have a Journal for myself.
4) I am on a race to increase the traffic to my [site "http://www.geocities.com/binnyva/"]. A good blog is oft described as a sure-fire methord to do this.
5) My journal could really be helpful to another person(s). My actions could inspire him/her or (as more often is the case) I would serve as a example for others on what not to do.
6) The software I use to do this, Drupal is free as is the host which I use. As I use to say, a free thing is worth every penny I spent on it.
7) I may have a semi-concious mind may have a reason that my concious mind is not (yet) aware of.
Whatever may be the reason, the bottom line is that I have a Journal - wether you like it or not.
