    Thank you for viewing. It seems that lately there have been an overwhelming amount of journals being posted and no one really knows what category they fit into. I've seen some in the "making money" section, while other categorize themselves into the Black Hat SEO and so fourth.

    First off, journals shouldn't be posted in the "making money" section, as I'm yet to see the "[Journal] Newbie to make $100/day in 2 months" ever reach their goal, but I really don't know where it should go. Please note that I'm all for journals as I firmly believe you should write your goals down as well as share them. It helps keep you accountable. You fear failure because you publicly posted that you were going to reach a goal. It makes you work hard to achieve what you said you would. I enjoy reading them and offer encouragement to those who actually have what it takes to be successful as an internet marketer. All you need is hard work and persistence; the methods are already in front of you.

    Anyway, since Journals don't really fit into anywhere, I'd really like to see a separate section for journals. Journals shouldn't be floating around in random sections. Confining journals to one section will help members continue to write journals as well as encourage others to start their own.

    Keep journaling my friends... just in the journal section.

    Yeah I had no idea for where my journal should have gone so I just put it in the make money section.

    You can put me on that list cause you can follow my journal thread here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...9-cpa-search-engine-optimization-journal.html

    I managed to get into ~10?/day and now my milestone is to get ~20?/day before summer so i can pay my rent without doing any work.

    It's journal about passive income and i'm achieving my goals :)

    I had my first journal in lounge as i felt it was best in there, but as you know, people tend to skip lounge threads cause it wont boost their post rates!! I had to make another thread linking to lounge thread so i would have conversation in my thread(s), no point of having thread if people dont even acknowledge it (in the lounge, people read it when it is bumped but people dont reply, give hints and suggestions, questions).

    Definitely. It would be great to keep them all together in one section.

    Agreed. It is a much needed section. I too will start a journal once the journals section goes live.

    True. There are a lot of journals and more are coming regularly.
    If there is a journals section the forum would definitely be more organized.
    +1 for a journals sectoin

    I made this suggestion some time ago. Fell on deaf ears!

    I'm sure it has been brought up several times. I'd like to see it as it would increase motivation for most people as well as accountability.

    Add my name to the list as well!

    Been wanting to start my own journal, especially with the "New Year" starting soon and really wanting 2012 to be "the year" I start seeing the type of success I know I'm capable of obtaining!
