4 Reasons Why Everyday Timeline is Better than Diaro 3

Okay, so a month or two ago I made the announcement that I would be switching my daily journaling from Diaro 3 to Everyday Timeline– both for Android.

Thoughtree for iPhone (iOS 7)

You may have read on EasyJournaling.com, our mid-summer review of Thoughtree (the Beta) but I’m pleased to reevaluate my recommendation now that it has hit the iTunes App Store, all tweaked and tuned for iOS 7 and free for the taking.

Can Journaling Make You A Better Person?

When it comes to journaling, it’s more about the practice than it is about what’s being written. Creating a writing routine can make you a better person. In fact, it allows you to explore the depths of your soul and to consider possibilities that may otherwise be outside your reach. Journaling regularly allows you to have a better connection with yourself. You don’t have to censor your thoughts or your words. You can be crass, critical, caring, careful, calculated, and confident all at once. You can relive the best moments of your life over and over again in only...
