Creating a log file in Apex

I have a visualforce page that talks to an Apex class.  I would like to log errors in a separate file that will allow me to check at anytime the errors we have encountered.  How would I implement this in Salesforce?

We use a custom object and anytime there is an error/exception in the code we catch it and create a record in that custom object with details like Class/Method Name, Line number, Error message etc.

On top of that, we have created workflow rule to notify admins and developers whenever a new record is created in this object.
