I first experienced session summaries, as an official thing players can do to earn XP.
In the [Affiliate Link] campaign
Graveyard of Empires, of over four years of Wednesday nights.
I’ve written about it many times.
The DM gives 150 XP per level, so at 7th level, .
I’m earning 1,050 XP per session
John, the DM, wants at least one player to do an “official” summary, but each player can participate.
We used a G+ group for this.
John carried on with that in the two year [Affiliate Link] campaign
and now the follow-up to the original campaign, called After The Fall, using [Affiliate Link].
The Stars Without Number game was posted to a Discord server
For After The Fall we are using a wiki software called that the GM hosts on his
I use session summaries that I write as GM for my games
to ensure I don’t lose track of anything.
I write them for the players.

The Broken Lands, and then the campaign, Delver’s Deep.

2020 at 12:31 pm I’ve been writing session summaries since re-engaging with role playing in 2011.
Since then I’ve written something like 250 session reports on my blog (and more recently on a campaign specific Facebook group as well).
I do it mainly for the first three reasons on your list: keep a ‘factual’ record of the game we can all reference, somewhere to catch up if you’ve missed a session or two, and a way to introduce the flavour of the game to a new or prospective players.
And quite honestly I enjoy writing them.
Not to mention having to pound out 1500-2000 words every week has improved my writing (God knows it needs the help!).

Glad to know I’m not alone.
Yes, the regular writing of 1,000+ words is great to improve both typing skills and writing skills.
