  • A journal is the cafemom blog spot. You can write about almost anything. You can set it to been seen only by your friends, by all cm members or have it be public so you can link to it from off site. You can also write a journal post and share it on facebook and tweet it. I do that often. You can add photos , videos and polls just like group posts but this can be accessed site wide. You can even use it to advertise your business as long as you mark for the market place. My drafts is for saved, not yet published journals. If you can't write it all in one sitting or it needs to be posted on a specific day then you save it to your drafts until you are ready to post. You can the popular journals by hovering over the journal tabs and the 100 most popular journalists by clicking the journals tab and scrolling down. Journals become popular by yes votes. They can only be popular for a limited time so it rotates.

  • a journal is just basically a blog. A draft just means you are still working on it.

  • A journal is a place to post your random thoughts, to vent, to post FYIs and commentary outside of groups. It's also a place to advertise for businesses, charities and other things for sale.

    When you are writing a journal, you can click "save as a draft" and come back to it at a later time. No one will be able to see it but you.
