A few years back I had a dream blog. I started it for a variety of reasons, but mostly because writing my dreams down by hand took much longer than it took to type them. I only posted in my dream blog for a few months before I moved on to other things and ditched it. But I've been thinking of starting a new dream blog for a while and I've been getting signals from the universe for a few weeks that a closer examination of my dreams would be a good idea. A startling dream here and there, dream related articles that pop out of seeming nothingness and other signs of synchronicity have been making themselves known to me.
I've done some digging and found that I am not the only weirdo who wants to keep an online dream journal. There are tons of dream journals out there ranging from the very visual yet amazingly language based to those with only the bare facts. In fact, I've found a great site called, you guessed it, Dream Journal and I'm really liking it so far. I know it makes me a traitor to the almighty Blogger but this is a unique site that keeps track of specific facts like whether the dream occurred indoors or in the past, if you were lucid, the setting and feelings, etc., and allows the user to see trends and themes over time. It also offers some interpretive help as well as opening up your dream to the interpretations of other dream bloggers. There's a forum and all kinds of other groovy, helpful things on the site; I highly recommend it. There are a few ads but they're tasteful and not obnoxious so I don't really mind considering the benefits. It's a helluva lot better and much more useful than a handwritten dream journal in my opinion; at least it is to me. So, without further ado I'd like to introduce My Dream Journal.
