|I agree that it's a great way to view things in their perspective! At first I kept Jasmine's diary as a training log, basically. I wanted to see her progress over the weeks/months. As it went on, I would find myself writing entries while being confused initially, and by the time I was half way through writing it, I'd delete it or start over because I was no longer confused about why she acted a certain way or where it went wrong!
Then as hard-core training started to dwindle, I started to keep Jasmine's diary mainly for spreading the word about issues important to us and to provide info for fellow Dogsters. I don't have a "real" website, don't know how to start one, so Jasmine's diary is my way to kind of put together important ideas for others to view. For example, over a year ago I started creating an alphabetical list of breed rescues in her diary. Crazy, maybe, but my initial purpose was to show just HOW MANY places a person can look for a dog, even a specific breed.
I keep Socks' diary to keep her pals updated on her health and other important milestones in her life. It is really fun to write as Socks, I have a blast portraying her attitude in her diary and her postings where appropriate.
I admit that I am REALLY bad at keeping up with Max's diary. There really is not much to write about, he is such a simple pup. Maybe one of these days I will get a good idea about how to make his diary more interesting. I do feel a bit bad for him, I feel like he's a bit neglected here on Dogster.
I kept Cole's diary as a way to track his progress as a foster. Now that he's in a furever home, I don't update it much anymore. But I will if I ever recieve an update about the cute little bugger!
So now I'm doing the same thing with Sawyer, tracking his amazing progress through his diary. Sawyer is now the most active diary I keep. I feel it's really important to keep his diary updated since he is currently looking for his furever home. It is amazing to look back at his first entry and remember how different he was when he first came here!! I also know there are some pups quietly following his story, so I want to keep them happy with frequent updates, of course.
