Do you even use the journals section anymore or do you just vent on answers?

I thought that is what the journal section was for (venting, cute stories, birth announcements, ect) but I am seeing more and more vents with no real questions on here.

  • Vents and such need to be in journals.

  • Vents are for journals. I don't use journals because the one time I did I got a hatemail stalker from it. Crazy woman kept messaging me. I don't vent on CM unless it goes with a question I'm asking.

  • I miss the days when the Journals section was a place for really good writers to shine. It seems to me that Groups would be the place to purely vent frustrations, Answers would be the place to vent while asking a question (that's pretty common) and Journals would be the place to write for content and/or information exchange.

  • I don't vent as much (or if I do here, I make it a question), but I still use Journals for information I can link into an answer.

  • i don't do either..very often. in fact, it's safe to say i venture into Journals about 2% of my CM-time.

  • I agree. journals used to be a place to see some great writers. I almost feel cheated at how much it has died out

  • *sigh* If someone venting, like what you're doing now, bugs you don't read it.
