Online Journal Spotlight: A Little Thing Called 750 Words

An amazing way to eJournal is to do it online. Special software makes it possible to keep your journal completely with your browser (ie Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox…). Doing it in this way has several advantages including access from any computer with an internet connection, cloud backup and more features than most of us need.

iPad Journal Review: Max Journal

I have just taken Max Journal for the iPad through its paces and I’ll have to say I’m impressed. It is almost everything you would want in a journal or diary for your iPad and a little more.

The Secret Ingredient

A well kept journal is an amazing thing, especially if it is by yourself or someone you are close to. The pages are often interesting, inspirational or even funny. I can’t believe I was able to get through that trouble with my sanity intact! Was I really that apathetic about marriage when I was single? So what is it that makes journals so compelling? I want to answer that question in part with a riddle that you are probably familiar with. This thing all things devours: Birds, beasts, trees, flowers; Gnaws iron, bites steel; Grinds hard stones to meal;...
