However, when it comes to improving digital journaling skills, I have found that many struggle to get started, let alone become proficient and comfortable with this relatively new practice.

We watched everything on these bulky media boxes from blockbuster movies to home videos.

Important Note about Apps that are Upgrading. If you have been a part of the Easy Journaling community for a while you have probably seen a post or two about the most popular online journal, Penzu.

A year ago, we posted a personal review on the subject titled Why I’m Switching to Penzu. In short,...read more!

It’s not often that a new journaling app is so remarkable that it causes me to change my personal daily writing habits. But Journey has won me over. It has become my daily app of choice, and I recommend giving it a try. Keep in mind: I sample dozens of apps. I can’t help myself. As the owner of EasyJournaling.com, and curator of the BestJournalApp.com recommendation tool, I’m always on the lookout for new journaling apps that spring up. But a few months ago, I found myself coming back to this one over and over, because it was so simple,...read more!
