Who is your journal for

As we have said, the reader you might have in mind for a learning journal may well be yourself. In fact, some people always use a learning journal just for themselves, perhaps drawing on it for more public writing or using it as a place for ' first thoughts'. You may also have in mind a fellow student or tutor, who in this case is concerned with your progress and interested in your ideas, rather than with judging your work. One student said that writing journals is like ' having a conversation with myself', another that it was like writing for ' a good friend', who was always there, ready to listen. On the other hand, if a journal is a required part of a course, a tutor may read it. The reader and the purpose of the journal will affect how you write it.
