Blogs are definately a type of freewriting.  You can put down many ideas into one blog.  Blogging is another way of clearing your mind of clutter and freeing it so you can concentrate on the task at hand...whether it's a school assignment or life assignment!

Took my kids to the beach yesterday and spent the day with old friends.  It was nice to reconnect.  The beach is definitely my favorite place to be...it's so tranquil and soothing.  Helps to clear the mind.  Breathing in the salt air is cleansing.

Gotta get clear and jump into my paper!!!!!  Peace out!!  lol
