I saw this today on FamilySearch –Writing a Personal History, Journal Ideas and Why it’s Important: https://media.familysearch.org/writing-a-personal-history-journal-ideas-why-its-important/.
Journaling. Journal ideas. Personal histories. Bullet journaling. Personal stories. Photo journaling. These are all avenues to tell your own personal story and create something for your posterity to love and enjoy. But as I truly think about it, writing and/or recording your own personal story is more than a classic heirloom to pass on to family (which is an important reason to do it anyway), but it is something more. It is a chance to look at your life and see that your life that is one well-lived and to see that you have overcome triumphs, celebrated joys and survived heartaches. And not only is it therapeutic for you, it will be for countless generations after you are no longer here.Insert summary of the blog here.

The above article is true not just for those who are genealogists, but for those wanting to be remembered.
In my case, my blog includes a lot about me. As time goes on, I will be adding more information – both new things as they happen, but also things from my past that I haven’t shared yet.
If you blog, vlog, or have a website, it includes a lot about you. It doesn’t matter if you don’t intend for it to include things. It shows what’s important or relevant to you, personality quirks and traits you may not recognize, etc. Your social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. presence shares a lot about you.
