What “Counts” as Journaling?

This entry is part 80 of 86 in the series Scrapworthy Lives Results

Each Wednesday, I usually write a post from my dissertation.

Though scrapbooks are rarely identical and there is tremendous variety in terms of scrapbooking styles, scrapbookers do common things on their scrapbook pages.

Most scrapbookers include journaling for instance, but the journaling style may vary. One scrapbooker may include the date the photographs were taken, a title, and caption the photographs. Another scrapbooker may provide extensive journaling talking about how the photographs make them feel.

Some respondents considered a caption (who, what, when, where) as journaling, while others did not. For the purposes of this study, I consider any words to be journaling, even if it is just a one-word title or a date.
